Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley releases the anthemic “Home” off his upcoming sixth Capitol Nashville album to country radio today. Bentley penned the poignant new track with Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers.
“One of the best parts of being a traveling musician is getting to meet people from all over the country and hear about what’s happening in their lives and their towns…the struggles and the joys,” says Bentley. “They’re the inspiration for this song. The lyrics speak to the challenges we’ve had as a country, but hopefully the song leaves you feeling inspired and optimistic.”

Bentley’s sixth Capitol Nashville studio project is scheduled for release in early 2012 and has already scored the No. one hit “Am I The Only One.” Bentley’s new album follows in the footsteps of his critically acclaimed UP ON THE RIDGE, which earned Album of the Year nominations at the ACM, CMA and GRAMMY Awards this year. His previous five albums have sold over five million copies, earned 10 GRAMMY nominations and spawned eight No. one hits.
Bentley will kick off the first leg of his “Country & Cold Cans” tour on Oct. 6 in LaCrosse, WI with 22 dates running through Nov. For more information and a full list of tour dates, visit www.dierks.com
