This week, Lon Helton interviews Dierks Bentley about his new album “The Mountain.” It’s Dierks’ ninth album, and was written and recorded in Colorado. Dierks brought some of his favorite songwriters on a writing retreat to Telluride last year. After writing a bunch of songs, Dierks realized he also had to record the album in the same location. So he & his producer found a suitable studio, flew some musicians there, and recorded the album. The result is an album that Dierks is very proud of. The first single, “Woman Amen,” is already in our Top 5. Dierks has also begun his Mountain High Tour, with Brothers Osborne and LANCO. He’s performing some of the songs during the tour. A reminder that Dierks Bentley’s album The Mountain is available Friday June 8th.
