ACM nominee and performer Dierks Bentley shared the story of real-life heroes Jennifer and Sydnee Floyd on Tuesday (April 10th) across all Entertainment Tonight platforms with the exclusive music video premiere of his Top 10 single “Woman, Amen.” Directed by longtime collaborator Wes Edwards, a performance from Colorado’s stunning landscapes which also serves as the foundation of Bentley’s upcoming ninth studio album THE MOUNTAIN, coincides with the powerful story of Nashville’s Floyd family, a mother-daughter duo who drew from their own personal hardships to create positive change in their community.
“Jennifer and Sydnee make everyone around them want to do more, to be better…it was an incredible honor for me to honor them,” said Bentley. “I hope that by shining a light on the completely selfless volunteer work they do, it will maybe inspire other folks to do what they can in their own communities. I was really drawn to their real-life experience, and I wanted to do a video based on real people with real struggles and real triumphs. These are the people I get to meet every day, and they are really the ones who have inspired this music.”

The “empowering single” (Rolling Stone) that “celebrates women in song” (Associated Press) shares a deeply sincere and personal message of love and gratitude that’s made universal, proving why Bentley is “one of the format’s leading male hit-makers,” (NPR). The “shimmering song of devotion” (Billboard) has been dubbed “insanely catchy” (CMT) and “feels arena-ready,” (Baltimore Sun). In addition to performing “Woman, Amen” at this weekend’s 53rd Annual ACM Awards (4/15 on CBS at 8:00P ET), it will serve as a pivotal performance during ABC’s WE Dayprimetime special (airing 8/17 at 8:00p ET) where Bentley will spotlight the Floyd family during the world’s largest youth empowerment event, alongside speakers and performers including Jennifer Aniston, The Chainsmokers, Morgan Freeman and Selena Gomez.
