Bentley is "Gone"
Wednesday, October 21, 2020
– Dierks Bentley released a new song, "Gone," today.
"I moved out West with my family in March and have been living in a small mountain town....making up for lost time with them," Bentley said on social media. "Between the adventures, there has been a lot of music. I've been writing a lot songs, listening to a lot of great songs from the Nashville songwriting community, hosting my Apple radio show, helping my daughter's (sic) with their own community radio show...and just playing and singing for fun."
"I've always had so much gratitude for our fans and for what we get to do for a living...and to say I feel that way now more than ever would be the greatest understatement ever made! I can't wait to hang with my road family of band, crew and fans. As soon as we get the green light, we will be out there. Hope you enjoy the new music and the beginning of another chapter. Love you guys."
Bentley, who grew up in Arizona, did not saying where he is living.
Bentley's most recent album was "The Mountain" from 2018. He also formed an alter ego side project with his band members, Hot Country Knights, which released "The K Is Silent" earlier this year. The group parodies '90s country music.

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 ...
