Dierks Bentley was part of a multi-faceted feature for the new music issue of stylish men’s lifestyle magazine Esquire. For the April issue, on newsstands today (3/23), Bentley traveled to Clarksdale, Mississippi’s Shack-Up Inn for a two-day fashion shoot with renowned photographer Danny Clinch. He joined an eclectic group of musicians for the feature, including fellow Nashvillian Griffin House, Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, and Ben Kweller.

At the end of the trip, each songwriter was challenged to write, perform and record an original song that included the phrase “Somewhere in Mississippi.” The songs will be available for free download for one day only, and a full EP of all the songs will be available April 5 at Bentley’s song will be available for free on Mon., March 29.
