Show Quotes

  • “That whole generation is kinda passing on to some degree and I’m sorry to hear about [Guy Clark’s] passing.” Dierks Bentley
  • “After coming with some pretty heavy songs, like ‘Say You Do’—and certainly a very heavy song like ‘Riser’ off the last album—it’s a fun way to kick this album off, get a fresh start and move forward.” Dierks Bentley
  • “It’s okay to have fun songs. Fun songs are good. […] Think about your fans out there. They’ve been working all week. They’re coming out to a show or they’re driving to work at 6 o’clock in the morning. To be able to put on a song like ‘Somewhere On a Beach’ and kind of transport their mind and take their focus away from their problems for a little bit or the traffic they’re stuck in.” Dierks Bentley
