Dierks Bentley has just released the music video for his new song, “Gold,” shot as a tribute to the countryside of Tennessee, ahead of the release of his 10th studio album, Life Anthem.
The multi-Platinum, 14-time Grammy-nominee celebrates everyday life, from yard sales to playing frisbee with your dog, acknowledging the simple treasures of Nashville.
As Dierks puts it: “‘Gold’ is an optimistic reality check. I think we all wrestle with trying to get through the rocky parts of life and on to the next thing, but there are lots of special moments to cherish even in the middle of the tough stuff.”
Directed by his previous collaborator Wes Edwards, the video showcases Bentley’s love for the outdoors, with scenes of grassy plains, natural waterfalls, and the unmatched warmth of a campfire on a starry night. “Gold” sets the tone for Bentley’s forthcoming album, Life Anthem, which arrives in early 2023 and will follow his 2019 release, The Mountain. For Life Anthem, Bentley worked with several of his longtime collaborators, including Ross Copperman, Reid Shippen, and Jon Randall.
Over the course of nine albums released to date, Dierks Bentley has solidified himself as a premier singer-songwriter within country music and bluegrass, speaking to how life can age you, but also calling back to the value of experience.
Since his first publishing deal in 2001 and the release of his debut album in 2003, Don’t Leave Me In Love, Dierks has become a household name within the genre. After releasing hit albums such as Riser, Home, and Black, Bentley has long been a Music Row standout for his devotion to his roots in classic country and Bluegrass. His upcoming 10th album landmark speaks to how time has flown in Bentley’s unique, 21st-century career.
Fans can also catch Bentley, along with fellow headliners Luke Bryan, Jon Pardi, and Cody Johnson, at the Country Thunder Festival in Arizona in the spring of 2023.
