Album Review

There is apparently no limit to the number of Opry-friendly, down-home, good-looking crooners that Nashville can wrap in jeans and put forth in any given year. Like most of these, Dierks Bentley seems amiable enough, and, on this debut album, he makes each required stop on the stardom trail: rascally, boot-scoot humor ("Bartenders, Etc."), gauzy nostalgia ("My Last Name"), honky tonk swagger ("I Bought the Shoes"), boozy self-pity ("Whiskey Tears"), goofy outtake endings ("How Am I Doin'"), and, in "Distant Shore," an actually fairly complex purée of romantic revenge, poetic intoxication, and Biblical allusion. Aside from strident patriotism, which somehow slipped through the net, that pretty much covers all the bases. Bentley pulls it all off with a rawboned delivery that skims the surface of the genre without leaving a ripple of individualism in its wake. The last number, "Train Traveling," provides an unexpected jolt by pairing Bentley with the Del McCoury Band, whose intensity is evident from the artful accelerando that kicks off the song. But on every other track, Bentley is backed by competent and undistinguished players who know how to breeze through songs that value the deft lick and clever wordplay more than suggestions of depth or insight. This young singer clearly deserves whatever success he achieves for making all the right moves and offending no one aside from the odd disgruntled critic. ~ Robert L. Doerschuk, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Displays his live show well

While the sound may not the absolute best in portions of this album, it's definitely worth purchasing. Several of Dierks' biggest songs (to that point in his career) are included, but there are also a few gems that never made it to radio as well as some covers. I'd recommend buying the album in its entirety since it flows best that way, but some of the highlights are definitely My Love Will Follow You (which he sings with songwriter, Buddy Miller), Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go), Lot of Leavin' Left to Do, and Train Travelin'. Also, don't worry -- Dierks does sing a lot on Same Ol' River, even though you can't tell it from the preview.

Live From Bonnaroo 2007: Dierks Bentley

This album is great. It really gives you the feeling of actually being live at the festival. Dierks sings alot of songs that you don't normally hear him sing. If you are already a Dierks Bentley fan, then this is definitely a must have. If you aren't a Dierks fan, then you will be after you hear this album. Dierks rocks!

Love it

On day that will happen

Biography

Born: November 20, 1975 in Phoenix, AZ

Genre: Country

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Growing up in a non-musical family in Phoenix, Arizona, country singer Dierks Bentley got his country music education on his own, listening to recordings. A love of the music inspired him to move to Nashville at the age of 19, but he quickly grew discouraged by the lack of public and professional interest coming his way. It all changed when he walked into the Station Inn, a bar where the bluegrass faithful hung out. An all-night jam session recharged his batteries and he again started pursuing gigs....
