Today’s the day Dierks Bentley fans have been waiting for – the release of his new fun single “5-1-5-0″ from his new album “Home.” For those who don’t know, 5150 is the police code for a crazy person on the loose that’s a danger to property, people, or themselves. The crazy little love song doesn’t officially go for radio adds until April 9th, but it will start to receive airplay today.
“I was a huge fan of Van Halen growing up, and this song was definitely inspired by those guys…they taught me a lot about power chords and girls,” said Bentley. “Getting 5-1-5-0 has become slang on the bus for some of the crazy things that happen out on the road. I love that fans are using it back to me now…the spring Country & Cold Cans Tour is definitely gonna be 5-1-5-0.”
The song is a co-write by Dierks, Brett Beavers and Jim Beavers. It’s the third single from “Home,” which has already earned the singer two number one hit songs, the title track becoming Dierks’ ninth career number one hit single to date. “Home” is currently up for Song of the Year at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards. See if Dierks will win the ACM on April 1st at 8 pm EST on CBS.
