Dierks Bentley Releases New Single, Plans 2012 Album

Dierks Bentley released a new single, “Home,” on Monday (Sept. 26). The song comes from his upcoming album, due in early 2012. “One of the best parts of being a traveling musician is getting to meet people from all over the country and hear about what’s happening in their lives and their towns … the struggles and the joys,” he said. “They’re the inspiration for this song. The lyrics speak to the challenges we’ve had as a country, but hopefully the song leaves you feeling inspired and optimistic.” The upcoming album’s lead single, “Am I the Only One,” reached No. 1 on Billboard’s country airplay chart in August. Bentley will launch his Country & Cold Cans tour on Oct. 6 in LaCrosse, Wis.
