It’s hard to believe that it’s been ten years since Dierks Bentley burst onto the scene with What Was I Thinkin’. That song was a smash hit and since that time Dierks has built a very strong career.
He’s ready to release a new album this year and his career is as hot as ever. He’s been stringing off number one songs for a decade and his latest single sounds like it could be another one.
Listen closely to the backing vocals on this one. You’ll recognize another singer that’s hot on the charts right now.
Bourbon In Kentucky – Dierks Bentley
Dierks seems to be at his best with this kind of song. He can sing anything – fast, slow and in between – but I think he’s really strong with these slower songs that make you think.
The track is about a guy that’s really having a difficult time getting over his former love. I’m not really sure if she’s gone by leaving him or for something else, but you can feel the pain in the voice of the narrator.
He’s realizing that he can drink and drink, but it won’t do any good. He’ll still feel empty and alone. He’ll never get over her. That’s how he feels at this point anyway.
Did you notice the backing vocals?
It’s Kacey Musgraves. She’s hot right now with two major hit singles and if she keeps popping up on songs like this her career will only continue to shoot straight to the top.
Chart Estimate: #5
CML Points: 84/100
