Dierks Bentley Feels Like He Can Brag About Gone – Cause He Didn’t Write It

Dierks Bentley didn’t write his latest hit song “Gone” but he was attracted to it right away when he heard the track, “When it came time to go cut some stuff, this song just sort of rose to the top. And I gravitate towards it because I loved the title.”

When it comes to that title, Dierks feels like there could be a deeper message for the listener because of what everyone, including himself, has gone through over the past year, “I feel like I’ve been gone, I feel like we’ve all been gone. I feel like country music in 2020 was just gone. So, it touches on a little bit of the idea of what’s been going on here with COVID, but it does it in a metaphorical way through a relationship.”

Dierks thinks being able to interpret the song in a couple of different ways is a big help, “So, I don’t think anybody wants to hear anything too directly written about what happening right now. It’d be too depressing.”

How ever you listen to it, “Gone” is just a great song that Dierks loves praising — and he jokes he can talk it up all he wants, “I just love the groove, I love the way it feels…one of the good things about not writing the song, is that I can brag on it. It’s just written well! It’s well, well written with a great grove, it’s fun to listen to…it just feels like a great song.”

Dierks Bentley created a great music video for “Gone” as well — in fact, it’s so good, it received a ACM Award nomination for Video of the Year! Check it out right here…

Brian Kelley Finds A Solo Home

Earlier this year Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard announced that while Florida Georgia Line would continue, both guys would also be venturing out to do their own musical projects. As their FGL song “Long Live” is knocking on the door to number-1, Tyler is also climbing the chart with Tim McGraw and their duet “Undivided.”

Now, Brian is giving fans a taste of what’s to come with his solo project – he shared, “There’s a new kind of cowboy in town…who’s ready to ride this wave? Can’t wait for y’all to hear this new music.”

Brian also made some news in announcing that he’s partnering with Warner Music Nashville when it comes to any future solo projects he has, “I couldn’t be more grateful for everyone who has helped me on my journey to get here. I’m humbled to team up with Warner Music Nashville to take the music I’ve been dreamin’ and schemin’ up to the next level. This is just the beginning of a whole new adventure. My vision for what’s next is a vibe and state of mind – get ready to ride the wave with ya Beach Cowboy, y’all!”
