DIERKS BENTLEY TO RELEASE SEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM – RISER – ON FEB. 25

Dierks Bentely - RISER

GRAMMY NOMINATED SINGER/SONGWRITER DIERKS BENTLEY TO RELEASE 
SEVENTH STUDIO ALBUM – RISER – ON FEB. 25
   
Nashville,
TN – Jan. 6, 2014 – Each of singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley’s six
previous albums has a unique sound reflecting his creative state of mind
at that particular moment in time.  The story continues on Feb. 25, 2014 when Bentley will release RISER,
a country project grounded in lyrical substance with a new sonic power
that spotlights Bentley’s distinctive gravelly voice, one of the most
original and recognizable in the genre. 

“I
named the album RISER because the lyrics in that song perfectly
articulate who I want to be, who I try to be,” Bentley explains.
“There’s a lot of really intense material on this record, but there’s
also a lighter side that is equally important in telling the story of
the last two years of my life.  When I first started writing for this
album, I was in a place of grief over the loss of my dad, but over the
course of the next 18 months, my wife and I had our son Knox, and I
ended in a place of real joy and gratefulness.  Both sides of that coin
are what country music has always been about, and I hope that my fans
can feel how much of myself I put into this project. It’s all out on the
table, for sure.” 

To
assemble the new album, Bentley enlisted producer Ross Copperman and
executive producer Arturo Buenahora, Jr.  Together, the trio mixed the
immediacy of old-school live recording techniques with the experimental
nature of new technologies.  Buenahora matched Bentley with the right
co-writers and songs. The result is RISER – an album with a heightened
depth, an increased vulnerability and a greater sense of purpose in
every word.
