Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley’s “Burning Man” (featuring Brothers Osborne) from his No. One selling album THE MOUNTAIN has been released as his next single at Country radio. “The hard-charging” (Newsday) track opens the album on a fiery-but-reflective note, fusing propulsive beats with booming vocals and guitars to describe the star– a restless spirit with his feet firmly on the ground. The “combustible new track” (Rolling Stone) follows his 17th career No. One “Woman, Amen” and implements “a rousing ode to middle-aged duality” (Paste).
“This song hits hard on so many levels for me and having Brothers Osborne be a part of it makes it even better,” said Bentley. “This has become one of my favorite moments in our live show and I can’t wait to see the crowds reaction over the rest of the summer.”
“A high-water mark for Bentley – his most affecting song since 2015’s magnificent ‘Riser.’ ‘Burning Man’ builds on that ballad’s theme of evolution, as Bentley assesses his place in the world as a 40-something troubadour.” – Rolling Stone
“A Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers-style rock song that ends with a banjo-guitar breakdown.” – Associated Press
“A dark and grungy collab about not losing your wild side as you mature.” – Billboard
“Contains most of the elements that made him a star. The title is a reference to the notorious Nevada desert festival, but the lyrics act as a summation of Bentley’s appeal.” – Kansas City Star
“The harmony the three men create during the song emphasizes the dichotomy so many men face.” – CMT
“Ready for your perfect summer song? Bentley’s ‘Burning Man’ is undoubtedly it. Frenetic and explosive.” – The Boot
