Dierks' brand new album, HOME, debuted at the number one spot on Billboard's Country Albums chart this week. The second single off the album, "Home," also continues to climb up the Top Five at radio following his last number one single, "Am I The Only One."
Take a look at what critics have to say about HOME:
“Bentley has always been a big-picture guy, looking to pull together the different kinds of music he loves. On what may be his most cohesive album, he combines rustic sounds of crisp banjo and mandolin with a surging beat that falls between U2 and Waylon Jennings.” – USA Today
“Bentley always utilizes banjo, fiddle, mandolin and especially dobro in his music, but with a modern beat and energy that, along with his distinctive voice, gives him a compelling sound of his own.” – Associated Press
“Dierks Bentley’s new album is his most assured…like an actor playing a role, great country singers inhabit their songs and make them sound like they’re living it all right before your ears. When it works, it feels Oscar-worthy… Dierks Bentley is a great country singer.” – Washington Post
“Home is packed with songs that showcase Bentley as a vocalist and that will feed his energy as a performer on stage.” - Tennessean
“It's Bentley at his country-mainstream best.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
"Dierks Bentley has recorded what is undoubtedly the finest album of his career." - CMT
“It leaves you the listener with the impression that Bentley has made something special here, not just his most consistent album and 2012’s first great country album, but a work that reminds us of the separate power that individual songs can have when they’re strategically placed together on an album.” – PopMatters
Dierks will also appear on the Ellen DeGeneres Show today, February 15th, with a surprise up his sleeve.
