Dierks Bentley is vaulting up the country charts with his new single, “Home.” He wrote the tune with Brett Beavers and Dan Wilson just a few days after the tragic massacre in Arizona earlier this year. “Home” is not only a call to inspire hope in others, but it is a truthful tribute to America, as well. “I think through honest is where you find real relief, real inspiration, real hope, real understanding of what’s going on,” Dierks explains. “I’m extremely patriotic. I love this country, and I love the history of this country.” To write a patriotic song, Dierks knew he had to balance it just right so it wouldn’t come off as a chest-thumping tune. “Tackling a song like this – I’m trying to make it honest and helpful without just going for the easy, easy win, but also to make sure people will listen to it and play it. That’s kind of a tough middle ground to do, but in the end, it’s honest. And country music has always been about honesty, and that’s what makes it great.”
- “Home” is the second single from Dierks’ forthcoming album, due early next year. The first – “Am I the Only One” – went to No. 1.
- “Home” will be available via iTunes on November 8th.
