When I saw this tweet from Dierks Bentley's PR firm, "The Green Room" today," I couldn't wait to find out more!
@thegreenroompr: Go "Somewhere In Mississippi" with @dierksbentley & @Esquiremag ! Download DB's song on 3/29, watch the preview here:
So the scoop is, Dierks was hand-picked by the men’s leading lifestyle magazine, Esquire to be part of their April Music Issue, on sale March 23.

Esquire asked five of their favorite musicians — Dierks Bentley, Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Griffin House, and Ben Kweller — to come to the Shack-Up Inn in Clarksdale, Mississippi, and take part in a two-day fashion shoot with world-famous photographer Danny Clinch.

"And to make things interesting, we also asked each of the musicians to take the Esquire Songwriting Challenge: write, perform, and record an original song with lyrics that include the phrase "Somewhere in Mississippi." For some of them, this became the title of their song and they used it time and again; for others, they used the phrase once before heading in another direction. The results are five songs as unique and entertaining as the men who created them."

Beginning March 29, each musician's song will be available on as a free download for one day only.

Hear a sneak preview by clicking on this link.

Esquire say's they'll also debut exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of each guy performing his song — kinda like the trailer you just watched — so don't miss your date with an exclusive download.

Monday, March 29 is Dierks Bentley's day, so mark your calendar!

I know all our Mississippi DB Congress reps are gonna be excited! Especially DBC Secretary, Amanda!



  1. This sounds like a fun idea!

  2. I like the preview. I can't wait to hear the entire song. I will be buying that issue of the mag as soon as it comes out!
