Bentley does some "Living"
Tuesday, February 19, 2019
– Dierks Bentley released a new single, "Living" to radio today.
This is the third single from "The Mountain," which also featured the hits "Woman, Amen" and "Burning Man" with Brothers Osborne.
"The idea for this song started from being on the road and realizing how little 'living' we were actually doing out there," said Bentley. "Whole days would go by where you never leave the bus, and all you would see is the back parking lot of the arena. Going to Walgreens was a big deal."
"That is when the idea was born that there is a true difference between being alive and actually 'living.' This song is certainly about big moments in life and adventure, but it's more about finding the beauty and that feeling in everyday moments."
"My goal for 2019 is to get outdoors and seek adventure whenever possible while also being fully present and living in even the ordinary moments whether it be my son's hockey practice and my girls' theater performances or sitting around the table having dinner in catering with my band and crew," Bentley said.

On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest. On the musical front, he traded long-time producer Brett Beavers, producer of every disc except "Up on the Ridge," for Ross Copperman, who has enjoyed more success as a writer, including several previous tracks for Bentley.

Dierks Bentley takes a left, turn, sort of, on his fifth studio disc. Bentley has built a solid reputation as a country artist with a slew of hits and catchy songs with edge. But here, Bentley goes bluegrass or at least 12 songs steeped in that sound. This is nothing new for Bentley, who previously has recorded bluegrass songs.
Much to his credit, Bentley does not come off as a dilettante, but, instead, someone who feels comfortable with the music from the lead-off title track to the closing sad ...
