Dierks Bentley Offers First Music From Next Album

The first music from Dierks Bentley’s next album debuted on his social media pages and was sent to radio today. Facebook users who “like” him on the site can listen to his new single “Am I The Only One.” Fans can stream the song this week and purchase it through iTunes beginning March 29. The party-hearty track shows residual influences of his previous bluegrass inspired album, mixed with plenty of southern rock stylings. Written by Bentley, Jim Beavers and Jon Randall, it is from his sixth studio album for Capitol Records Nashville. No word on a release date for the project.

The album was tracked at Echo Mountain Studio in Asheville, NC, where Bentley and the other musicians lived and recorded 15 songs in five days. Over 35,000 fans streamed the sessions live via a 24-hour web cam. See a video about the lead single here.

Bentley will debut “Am I The Only One” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno next Tues., March 29, followed by performances on CBS’ The Talk (3/30) and the Academy of Country Music Awards (4/3).

He is also in the midst of headlining the 30-city 2011 Jagermeister Country Tour, running through mid-May with special guests Josh Thompson and Miss Willie Brown.

Bentley’s upcoming project follows his critically acclaimed Up On The Ridge, which earned Album of the Year nominations at the ACM, CMA and GRAMMY Awards.

His career album sales total over five million units.
