Dierks Bentley Talks About His Upcoming Album

Dierks Bentley headed back into the studio earlier this year and over 30,000 of his closest fans watched Dierks & his band in the studio via a Live Web Cam that streamed 24-hours a day while they worked in the studio for five days on Bentley’s 6th studio album.  Last month, Dierks released his new single “Am I The Only One” which will be on his forthcoming album due out later this year.

Dierks recently sat down with Billboard & talked about his upcoming album as well as his newly released single “Am I The Only One”.  Of his new single, Dierks tells Billboard: “I wanted to have something out there for the summertime, and this just felt like the right song for that,” says Bentley, who wrote 11 of the 15 tracks himself and expects to put 12 or 13 on the final album. “I’ve been off the radio for a while ’cause I wanted to make an album that was important to me, musically, but wasn’t as commercial. But now I want to be back on (radio) and I wanted my fans to hear our stuff. I just wanted to come back with a song that was fun for fans and fun for country radio and fun for us to play every night…and (‘Am I the Only One’) fits in there.”

Dierks goes on to tell Billboard that his new single is “not representative of the whole rest of the album,” which he says covers a wide gamut of styles, subjects, feels and moods.  Sounds like we are going to have to wait & see what is in store for his next album.  Although, Dierks did mention to Billboard that he may release a 2nd single before his new album release.
