Sigh….Dierks Bentley is just so dreamy. So when we heart that Austin360 gave him the highlight of the night this past weekend at the iHeart Country Music Festival we just had to share…
They had this to say:
An early highlight was a five-song set from Dierks Bentley that included arguably the two strongest numbers of the entire night. “Riser” and “I Hold On,” both from Bentley’s latest album, reach much deeper into the soul than mainstream country acts generally venture. In the latter song, written partly for his late father, he sums up his resolve with a simple but powerful declaration: “I can’t change who I am, right or wrong/ So I hold on.”
Such powerful songs!
