Dierks Bentley wrote a song about Colorado. It's called "Sun Sets in Colorado", and it is an amazing song. The song talks about how he has moved across the country and no place truly felt right.

That was until he came to Colorado and found Rocky Mountain freedom. The song appears on his latest album Gravel & Gold.

It's obvious that Dierks Bentley loves the Centennial State. Who could blame him?

I predict that once his career slows down a bit he, and his wife, will come back to Colorado and live here full-time.

He moved his family to Colorado at the height of the pandemic. His family returned to Colorado for a fun-packed weekend.
