Dierks Bentley today releases the scenic music video for “Gold.” With an emphasis on looking at life from a different perspective, Bentley traces the treasures that can be found in everyday moments outlined in the “jangling country-rock tune” (Rolling Stone). “Gold” is available at all digital retailers here.
“The treatment for this music video almost wrote itself,” Bentley said. “’Gold’ is an optimistic reality check. I think we all wrestle with trying to get through the rocky parts of life and on to the next thing, but there are lots of special moments to cherish even in the middle of the tough stuff.”
Directed by Wes Edwards, the video was shot across the state of Tennessee and reiterates Bentley’s admiration for the outdoors. Backed by his six-string touring ensemble including Charlie Worsham, Bentley intertwines a jam session fitting for “a life anthem that perfectly melds heart-on-sleeve lyrical candor with an infectiously jaunty melody” (Taste of Country). The Top 25 and climbing “cheery, big-sounding single with a valuable philosophical observation delivered in a unique way” (Billboard) sets the stage for his tenth LP, arriving early next year.
