Dierks Bentley Sets New Album 'Riser' Release Date

.
(Radio.com) Dierks Bentley will release his much anticipated seventh studio album, Riser, on Feb. 25, a press release confirmed on Monday (Jan. 6). Featuring lead single "I Hold On," which Radio.com premiered last year, Bentley said there will be "really intense material" on the album, which he wrote and recorded following his father's death.

"I named the album Riser because the lyrics in that song perfectly articulate who I want to be, who I try to be," Bentley said in a release. "There's a lot of really intense material on this record, but there's also a lighter side that is equally important in telling the story of the last two years of my life."

When Bentley started the project he said he was in a "place of grief" over the loss of his father. "But over the course of the next 18 months, my wife and I had our son Knox, and I ended in a place of real joy and gratefulness. Both sides of that coin are what country music has always been about, and I hope that my fans can feel how much of myself I put into this project. It's all out on the table, for sure." more on this story
