Dierks Bentley released his latest single, “Home,” to radio this week. The song, the second single from his upcoming album, was inspired by Dierks’ life on the road. He co-wrote the 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,” Dierks said. “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.”
Dierks will release his new album, which will include “Home” and the No. 1 hit “Am I The Only One” in early 2012. He kicks off his Country & Cold Cans tour on October 6 in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.
