Country star Dierks Bentley released his highly anticipated album, Home, yesterday. Home marks the seventh studio album for Bentley and includes his number one smash, “Am I The Only One,” and the hit title track, “Home.” The album has already hit number one on iTunes’ Country Albums Chart and is currently sitting comfortably in the top spot.
Bentley is never one to forget his fans. He requested via twitter that fans send him their phone number so he could call some of them and chat about the album. True to his word, he started making calls yesterday. Bentley also had a special album release day message to his fans live from the streets of New York. Check out the video below.
Meanwhile, the country crooner is busy promoting the new record and is on the road with his 2012 Country & Cold Cans Tour. For more information and tour dates, visit his official website: www.dierksbentley.com.

Average Joe’s Entertainment’s, Colt Ford, was voted ninth on Country Weekly’s “Sexiest Men in Country Music” list. Ford was not originally on the ballot.
