Dierks Bentley Reveals RISER Track List

Dierks-Bentley-Riser
We’re less than one month away from the release of Dierks Bentley‘s seventh studio album, RISER. The album, hitting stores February 25, will show a more emotional side of Dierks, as its his first release since the death of his father and the birth of his first son.

The album was produced by Ross Copperman and Arturo Buenahora Jr., and includes a bevy of famous friends, including Kacey Musgraves, Chris Stapleton, The Cadillac Three‘s Jaren Johnston and Charlie Worsham.

“It’s important to really know the writers and musicians you work with, to hang out with them and live in the same world,” Bentley explains.  “I have such a romance with Nashville and this community. I drove across the country when I was 19 years old with a dream of just being invited to the party. It’s still wild to me that I get to work with and call so many incredibly talented people my friends.”

Sonically, the album will ring true to a Bentley concert. “It’s the sound in my head that I hear when I’m playing a live show,” said Bentley. “You have one ear monitor in, one ear out, and the crowd’s there and your voice feels really great. There’s a certain amount of gravel to it because you’re tired, but you’re all jacked up on whatever you’re drinking and adrenaline, and the crowds and the fans are there and there’s this feeling, fists in the air—it’s that thing that’s hard to transfer into a studio environment. There’s a rawness.”
