Chart-topping country music star Dierks Bentley will release “5-1-5-0” as the next single from his critically acclaimed new album HOME to country radio today. The foot-stomping new song officially goes for adds at country radio on April 9.
“I was a huge fan of Van Halen growing up, and this song was definitely inspired by those guys…they taught me a lot about power chords and girls,” said Bentley. “Getting 5-1-5-0 has become slang on the bus for some of the crazy things that happen out on the road. I love that fans are using it back to me now…the spring Country & Cold Cans Tour is definitely gonna be 5-1-5-0.”
Written by Bentley, Brett Beavers and Jim Beavers, “5-1-5-0” is the third single off Bentley’s No. one disc HOME, which has already delivered two No. one hits “Am I The Only One” and “Home.” The album’s anchor and title track recently became Bentley’s ninth career No. one hit as an artist and songwriter and is currently nominated for Song of the Year at the 47th Annual ACM Awards airing this Sunday on CBS at 8:00P ET.
Bentley is scheduled to kick off the 20-city US leg of his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour on April 13 in Los Angeles, CA with special guests Eli Young Band and Will Hoge. For a full list of upcoming tour dates and appearances, visit www.dierks.com.
