Dierks Bentley released his new single "Gold" today, it is the lead track from his upcoming tenth studio album which is set to arrive early next year. His new song is about gratitude, presence and the treasures to be found in the moment that you are in.
“2020 was a chance for me to give my guitar and the road a little rest. It gave me the chance to spend a lot more time adventuring outdoors with family and friends, but also alone. It also gave me time to reset and rekindle my love of Country music and a lot of the types of songs and sounds that I fell in love with when I first got to Nashville,” explained Dierks in a press release. “I think you’ll hear that in this first track, but it carries across the whole album.”
