As Dierks Bentley prepares for the release of his ninth studio album, The Mountain, on June 8, the Arizona native stopped by “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday (April 19) to share some cuts.
The 42-year-old singer kicked off his performance with his current single, and lead track, “Woman, Amen.” The female anthem, finds Dierks being thankful for the woman in his life. Inspired by his wife of 12 years, Cassidy, “Woman” was written about his better half.
“She’s been around me too long,” he told Billboard. “I’ve come back from so many writing appointments over the past 12 years like, ‘I wrote this song about you’ and she’s like, ‘Just because it’s a love song doesn’t mean it’s about me.’ She can see through things—it’s really one of my more personal songs about her and about the way I feel…a song that talks about how I’d be lost without [Cassidy].”
“Every night I should be on my knees / Lord knows how lucky I am / I’ll never say near enough / Thank God for this woman, Amen,” Dierks sings in the chorus.
Dierks recently announced the launch of the inaugural Seven Peaks Festival, set for Labor Day Weekend. The maiden festival will see friends Miranda Lambert, Dan+Shay, Brothers Osborne and more take the stage amongst the scenic background of the Colorado mountains.
