Dierks Bentley Paves the Path to The Mountain with Lead Single, “Woman, Amen”

17 January 2018 (Toronto, ON) - Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley found himself instantly intrigued with the idea of “Woman, Amen” when it was thrown out during a fall co-write with songwriters Josh Kear and Ross Copperman. "My wife and our relationship has been the one constant element in my life over all the ups and downs of my career and personal life,” shared Bentley. "Our journey together has made me the man I am today. I doubt my heart would even recognize the old me. This song addresses that in the most direct possible way. The personal gratitude expressed in the lyrics, mixed with a track that leans heavily on some bigger sounds, is the perfect way to introduce the album.” 

“Woman, Amen” is a deeply sincere and personal message of love and gratitude made universal with soaring signature acoustic instrumentation and a full-throated anthemic chorus. The lead track from his next studio album, The Mountain, is out today via Capitol Records Nashville/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, and will be performed by Bentley tomorrow on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Billboard gives breadth to “Woman, Amen” with a video glimpse into the epic landscapes of Colorado and the studio atop a Telluride mesa where the song was recorded. Watch the video HERE.

Last week, NPR previewed new music from The Mountain ahead of its release in early 2018. “He pursues themes of questing and self-actualization across a wide-open terrain of arid deserts and rugged ridgelines, cactus flowers and tumbleweeds,” wrote NPR. 

The writing process for The Mountain came together quickly when Bentley returned to Telluride for a retreat with his favourite fellow Nashville songwriters. Guitars, banjos, mandolins and fiddles are given room to shine and are integrated into modern drum and bass sounds that will fuel the arenas and amphitheatres on the road.

Since moving to Nashville, Bentley has brought a distinguishable grit and songwriting prowess to his recordings, consistently recreating his sound with a fearlessness that has won him both critical acclaim and commercial viability. Bentley has become a fixture in country music amassing 17 No. 1 singles, serving as a Grand Ole Opry member for over a decade, and receiving dozens of nominations including those from the ACM, CMA, the GRAMMYs, and the Billboard Music Awards.
