Frederick Dierks Bentley (born November 20, 1975) is an American country music singer and songwriter. Both it and its follow-up, 2005's Modern Day Drifter, are certified platinum in the United States. A third album, 2006's Long Trip Alone, is certified gold. It was followed in mid-2008 by a greatest hits package. His fourth album, Feel That Fire was released in February 2009
For a decade, every single Dierks Bentley release placed at least in Billboard's Country Top 20, usually making it to the Top Ten. That streak came to an end in 2013, when "Bourbon in Kentucky" - the first single from his in-the-works seventh album, Riser, and a duet with 2013's hot star Kacey Musgraves to boot - stiffed, going no further than 40 on the country charts. Such a thing doesn't happen to a big country star, so action needed to be taken: Bentley revised Riser, adding some levity to an album that nevertheless remains highly contemplative

Dierks Bentley thought he had his new album, Riser, all done and in the can last summer. But after his collaboration with Kacey Musgraves, Bourbon in Kentucky, didn’t take off, the 38-year-old country star rethought what he’d laid down. It’s a pretty dark song, he tells Rolling Stone. I’m not afraid of trying things. It’s a song I believe in, but it pushed the album release back about four months. The 10 best country albums of 2013. Ultimately, it was a very important four months. The record I had originally made, my dad was alive at the time and my wife and I had two kids
