Country music star Dierks Bentley is gaining massive momentum for the release of his fourth studio album on Feb. 3, 2009, as the lead single “Feel That Fire” has quickly become the fastest rising single of his career to date. Seven weeks after its release, the track burned through the Top 20 and is already at No. 16 on the R&R country singles chart.
Written with longtime producer/co-writer Brett Beavers, as well as Brett and Brad Warren, “Feel That Fire” is a post-modern love song to the kind of women all men desire and the exact kind of strength and free-spiritedness most women embrace at their core. No frills, straight-up and building on a ride that is equal parts steel guitar and raw need, it is vintage Bentley.
Programmers across the country are feeling the heat of Bentley’s newest release and speaking up about it.
“It’s the coolest sounding record on the radio!”
Mike Moore/Entercom Director Of Country Programming/KWJJ PD – Portland
“Dierks has established himself as a consistent hitmaker for Q104! He has delivered yet another killer song for us!”
Mike Kennedy/KBEQ – Kansas City
“Every Dierks Bentley single we’ve played since we signed on the Wolf in late ’06 has been a barn burner and we’re feeling the fire on this one. Great phones and good early research. He’s a core artist for us.”
Randy Bliss/WPAW – Greensboro
With hits ranging from the rogue’s delight “Lotta Leavin’ Left To Do,” the unbridled euphoria of “What Was I Thinking,” the pained loss of “Settle For A Slow Down” and the outright desire of “Come A Little Closer,” the gamut is merely a starting point for the 2007 CMA Album of the Year Nominee who is as at home at Lollapolooza as he is at Country Thunder. Having spent this year headlining his THROTTLE WIDE OPEN tour, Bentley has taken the songs from his upcoming album to the people, honing these songs into diamonds out on the road where truth and grooves merge in ways that have made him a consistent chart topper.
