Dierks Bentley‘s latest hit single, “Gold,” is a good example of his “headspace” when he reluctantly returned to Nashville to work on his current album, Gold & Gravel. He tells us: “I really honed in on the direction of this album when I came back to Nashville from Colorado. I did not want to come back. I wanted to stay in Colorado forever, but I got sucked back into Nashville. But when I got here, I actually realized how much I missed this place. It’s a great town, great friends, great people and obviously great music, and this record really kind of took a direction there. I wrote the song ‘Gold,’ which is about something that could look like gravel but actually could feel like gold, depending on your perspective, and so just having an attitude for gratitude was a big part of my head space going into this record.”

“Gold” sits at Number Seven and climbing this week on the Mediabase/Country Aircheck chart.

Dierks’ Gold & Gravel Tour kicks off on June 1st in Toronto with Jordan Davis and rotating special guests Elle King, Tracy Lawrence, Tyler Braden, Caylee Hammack, Hot Country Knights, Kameron Marlowe, The Cadillac Three, The Red Clay Strays, Molly Tuttle & Golden Highway, Shane Smith & the Saints, Caitlyn Smith, and Hailey Whitters.
