Dierks Bentley Says There Is Some Depth To 'Drunk on a Plane'
No wonder then that the song, which appears on Bentley's new album Riser, has proven to be such a fan favorite during his live shows. "It's a good story … relatable," Bentley told Radio.com about the song, which he wrote with Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins.
We spoke with Bentley in Las Vegas this past Friday (April 4), after he and Sheryl Crow finished rehearsing their duet of Bentley's "I Hold On," which they performed on Sunday's ACM Awards. And when the subject of "Drunk on a Plane" came up, Crow told us that she had been lucky enough to hear the song soon after it was written. And she immediately loved it. "I was like, 'touchdown!'"
Bentley said one thing he loves about the song is that, while it's about drinking and carrying on at 35,000 feet, it contains a multitude of emotions. "Even though it's called 'Drunk on a Plane,' there is some depth to the story, and to the music," he said. more on this story
