Dierks Bentley Shares Some Good News About New Music

Dierks Bentley Shares Some Good News About New Music

Dierks Bentley is still here with “Gone” on the country airplay chart — but now he’s also saying new music is coming!

While his latest track is getting ready to jump inside the Top 20, Dierks took to social media to announce, “Back in the studio with the band working on some new tunes. Album number 10…here we go!”

Stepping back in the studio is getting one step closer to returning to a routine that Dierks is familiar with…the next big step is returning to the stage and performing for fans.

Deirks says, “Country music is the best genre for storytelling, and I feel like we are realizing it probably now more than ever since we can’t congregate together at concerts, high five each other, sing and shout at the top of our lungs. A good country show is just about the greatest communion there is out there, we are all relying on lyrics and melodies at home and trying however we can to find different ways to connect with our fans, so that they know how important they still are to us…and I’m counting the days until we can all be back together again, beers in the air.”

Until then, you can sing along to Dierks’ latest song “Gone” — and enjoy all the different sides he shows in the music video for it…

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
