Product Description

Debut release from new artist Dierks Bentley. Enha nced CD contains music video. Commercial single sales increasing significantly week-by-week.

Amazon.com

Dierks Bentley’s debut album is a textbook case of the good things that can happen to a talented singer/songwriter who comes to Nashville and holds fast to his dream. Arriving from Phoenix at age 19, Bentley played the downtown clubs and allied himself with bluegrass musicians and commercial songwriters who loved country’s tradition, but modernized the form with rhythmic energy and contemporary lyrics. The result is an impressive debut that melds the attitude of honky tonk with the instrumentation of bluegrass (the Del McCoury band and Bryan Sutton guest), and establishes Bentley as a New Artist to Watch. Already the irresistible "What Was I Thinkin’," a breakneck story song with a plot line straight out of The Dukes of Hazzard, has topped the charts as the first debut single to reach number one in two years. But Bentley’s appeal runs far beyond a catchy novelty song, and his choice of originals and covers (Buddy and Julie Miller’s "My Love Will Follow You") add up to one of the year’s most memorable albums--just one more factor in country’s burgeoning swing back to tradition. --Alanna Nash

By DanD VINE VOICE on February 21, 2004
Format: Audio CD
I hesitated to buy this album. "What Was I Thinkin'" had been overplayed; I was sick of it. "My Last Name" is good, but kinda cheesey near the end.
Why I waited, I will never know.
Because, you see, this CD is country music as it's supposed to be--honky-tonkin' good fun. The first two singles are the only songs on here about the upside of love; everything else, with a couple of exceptions, ponders heartbreak and getting over it--two topics that have been sorely missed in country music.
Let's do a quick overview of the songs, you have a more specific idea of what you're gettin' into. "Bartenders, etc.," "How Am I Doin," and "I Bought the Shoes" are good-time honky-tonkers. "Wish It Would Break" deals with a man who can't get over his lost love; the following track, "Forget About You," is just the opposite--a man doing everything he can to get rid of a girl's memory, even if it means going insane.
"Is Anybody Lovin' You These Days" and "My Love Will Follow You" are pleas for rescue. "Whiskey Tears" is a song of a man drowning in the arms of a new lover who "doesn't have a heart". "Train Travellin" (Featuring the Del McCoury Band) is a bluegrass ode to times past; you don't have to be a fan of bluegrass (I'm not) to enjoy Bentley's haunting lyrics. "Distant Shore", a moder-day "He Stopped Loving Her Today," is a man who's willing to drink and drink away, knowing one day he'll get where even his lost love can't reach him.
Dierks Bentley is an amazing singer. His songwriting talent is pretty credible, too. He carries himself like a pro on this album--a collection of thirteen traditional country songs, sung by a honky-tonker who knows how to write and entertain. Dierks Bentley is going to be around a long, long time; buy his debut CD and discover why.

You've heard "What was I thinkin'" and this CD includes the video for the song, but that's just the tip of the iceberg on this CD. This song includes instant classics like the lyrics in "Forget about you" which includes the lines: I heard that old jones song just the other day/'bout a man who took a broken heart to his grave/ but I'll be damned if a memory's gonna lay me down...
"Bartenders, etc." and "How Am I Doin'" are great honky tonk party songs that derserve a place in every jukebox in America and "I Bought the Shoes" is a shuffle in the great tradition of Ray Price and others. The CD ends with a great colaboration with the Del McCoury Band. Honestly, not a dud on the whole CD. I got this CD last week and have played it AT LEAST once a day since I got it.

Dierks Bentley CD shows his ability to switch up from the novelty of his first hit "What Was I Thinkin'". There are songs about true love ("My Love Will Follow You"), heartache ("I Bought the Shoes") and drinkin' to forget both of the above("Whiskey Tears"). "Forget About You" is an excellent song about what one goes through to try and get over a failed relationship, "Bartenders, Etc." is a toe-tapper about that place where everybody knows your name, and "Train Travelin" is a delightful bluegrass number. There are also awesome ballads like "Distant Shore" and "My Last Name".

Produced by Brett Beavers (from Lee Ann Womack's band and writer of Brooks & Dunn's "My Heart is Lost to You"), this CD will rock you, haunt you, and make you smile - sometimes all at the same time.

Chances are, if you consider yourself a fan of country music, you?ve heard of Dierks Bentley. If you don?t know him by name, then you?ve definitely heard his song ?What Was I Thinkin?? which was a HUGE hit song last summer. If you?re one of the people who wanted to hear more from Dierks before purchasing his CD (as I was), you can stop waiting. Go out and buy the darn thing! Trust me, you won?t regret it.

If you haven?t yet noticed, Dierks has a very unconventional sound compared to a lot of other artists on the radio today. And, trust me, that?s definitely not a bad thing. His unique style of music blends together traditional country, modern country, and some bluegrass. Dierks does a great job keeping it COUNTRY without throwing in any pop, which is a rarity these days among all the Shania?s and Tim?s in the music industry. This CD is very refreshing for anyone who is disappointed in the direction country music is going.

My favorite song on the album has to be ?Train Travelin?? which pairs Dierks with bluegrass greats the Del McCoury Band. It starts off slowly, with bluegrass instruments mimicking the sound of a train, but it speeds up very quickly. Dierks? vocals soar and blend perfectly with those of Del and Ronnie McCoury. His haunting, self-penned lyrics are about how he wishes he could go back to a time where people ?weren?t so dependent on money to be free.?

Other favorites of mine include the emotional ?Wish it Would Break?, the laid-back "I Can Only Think of One", the catchy ?How Am I Doin??, and the brilliant ?Whiskey Tears.?

Every single song on this album is wonderful. It?s one of the few I can listen to from beginning to end without skipping through songs I don?t like. And it definitely doesn?
