Dierks Bentley has announced that he will release his brand new album, ‘BLACK’, early 2016!
This will be Dierks’ 9th studio album, following the success of ‘Riser’ which reached the #1 spot on the Billboard Country Albums chart and sold almost 400,000 copies. He is also currently nominated for a Grammy for ‘The Driver’, a collaboration with Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and Eric Paslay, and he will also host the upcoming ACM Awards with Luke Bryan in April, before making a trip to the UK of course!
Dierks has described this project as a “relationship record”. However, Entertainment Weekly describes it as a ‘concept collection’, based on his 10 year marriage to Cassidy Black. Dierks has written or co-writtern around half of the album, with the rest coming from the talented crop of songwriters around Nashville.
No release date has been given yet, but stay tuned on Twitter for updates!
