The Long Awaited New Album from Dierks Bentley is HERE

Home” is the title of a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Dierks Bentley. It is the seventeenth single release of his career, and the second from his sixth studio album for Capitol Records, also titled Home. Bentley co-wrote the song with Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers. The song was selected by the Arizona Centennial Commission to serve as its official song for the state’s 100 year celebration.The song was inspired by the Tucson, Arizona shooting that killed six people and critically injured U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords in January 2011.

Bentley told The Desert Sun that right after the shooting incident occurred he was sitting with the song’s two other writers, Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers and they were trying to make sense of the tragedy. He goes on to say that “the song’s about a sense of being and memories of the country.

Everybody’s idea of America is a little different

This song is not without a bit of controversy though.

In January 2012, singer-songwriter Jason Isbell posted via Twitter that he thought Bentley plagiarized his song “In a Razor Town”. After Isbell tweeted that Bentley “brought that idea to the table”, Bentley responded with…

that is some funny s**t!”

Bentley also linked to an earlier interview with co-writer Dan Wilson discussing the writing of the song. Wilson indicated that it was a collaboration, with he and Brett Beavers developing the melody of the verses and Bentley coming up with the hook of the chorus.
