i hold on
“My job as a songwriter is to capture my life and transfer it onto an album,” Bentley said during the New York premiere of his film “Dierks Bentley: Riser.” “The more personal you get, the more country fans can relate to it.”
“I’m not just putting out a collection of songs,” Bentley said of Riser. “I think in the end I have a record that really reflects who I am and who I’m trying to be. I definitely feel I’ve come out the other side stronger.”
“There’s a lot of really intense material on this record, but there’s also a lighter side that is equally important in telling the story of the last two years of my life.”
Watch the world premiere of Bentley’s new video for his single “I Hold On.” Said Bentley: “I hope when people listen to it, they raise their beers up, but this time for the bigger idea of what we all stand for as country music fans…faith, love and freedom.”
Congrats to Dierks Bentley and his wife Cassidy Black, who welcomed the newest member of their family into the world last night–baby boy Knox!
