Congrats to Dierks! I can’t wait to check out the new album.
Country star, Dierks Bentley, recently released the follow-up to his hit number one single, “Am I The Only One.” His new song, “Home,” is the second single off of his upcoming album of the same title. Bentley co-wrote the track with Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers.
The song was initially inspired by the tragic shooting surrounding Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords that took place in Arizona last January. Giffords was severely injured, 12 people were hurt, and 6 people lost their lives. “Home” was made the official song by Arizona’s Centennial Commission for the state’s 100-year celebration.
In an interview with All Things Considered host Melissa Block, Arizona native, Bentley, explained:
“I think the first thing I thought of when we started writing it was the shooting that happened in Tucson, Ariz., with [U.S. Rep.] Gabby Giffords. That had happened about four days earlier. That, for me, my home state — that invokes so many different feelings of anger and questions of why. And also, of course, the healing process. It all kind of came together in this song.”
“Home ” addresses patriotism in a heartfelt and honest manner. It recognizes our nation’s struggles and hardships as well as acknowledges people’s flaws while displaying hope for a better future. The underlying tone of the song unquestionably lies in sentiment of love and loyalty to our country. Bentley’s smooth country drawl on top of the raw and melodic sound of the track match perfectly with the powerful message of the song.
