DBTV - Episode 16 - The Making of 'Am I The Only One?' Video

Dierks Hits The Ice Before Bloomington Show

He’s known for his country music hits, but before tonight’s concert Dierks Bentley released some steam on the ice. Bentley is playing at U.S. Cellular Coliseum as part of the Jagermeister tour. B104 contacted Bentley to play a game of hockey before his performance, which was an offer he said he couldn’t turn down.

“It’s nice, it’s a chance to step away from doing interviews and all that stuff , to play hockey and have fun,” said Bentley.

Bentley said he started to play hockey about 10 years ago. He even compared the game to some of his performances.

“I think our show is kind of like a hockey game a little bit. We have six guys on the ice, guys on the stage, we kind of approach it the same way. We want to get out there and get a win.”

Members of the Bloomington Police and Fire Departments, PrairieThunder and B104′s Kevin and JD also joined him on the ice.


Dierks Bentley to Perform at Play On, Nashville - May 3 at the Opry House

You can’t keep a good show (or city, for that matter,) down. The Grand Ole Opry will mark the first anniversary of the flood that devastated much of Nashville (including Dierks Bentley's basement, photo left) and temporarily displaced the Opry from the Grand Ole Opry House with a star-packed show celebrating Music City’s heart and resilience.

The show, Play On, Nashville!, is set for Tues., May 3 at the Opry House. Among those scheduled to perform are CMA Entertainer of the Year Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Charlie Daniels Band, and more.

The Grand Ole Opry House was Nashville’s most famous icon affected by the May 2010 flood. Four feet of water engulfed country music’s most famous stage, and the show temporarily moved to several other Nashville venues throughout the summer before returning to the Opry House following an around-the-clock six-month recovery and restoration.

Nashville charitable organizations including Hands On Nashville, the American Red Cross, and United Way of Metropolitan Nashville will provide promotion codes to their supporters such that $10 from every ticket purchased using the codes will be returned to the charity. Additionally, proceeds from Play On, Nashville! commemorative prints available exclusively at the Opry House that night will go to Hands On Nashville, the volunteer resource center responsible for connecting over 125,000 volunteers to flood-related projects.

“The May 2010 flood devastated homes, businesses, and lives, but it also showcased the unsinkable spirit of our city and its citizens in ways we are still learning about a year later,” said Pete Fisher, Opry vice president and general manager. “We want to celebrate that the Opry’s hometown is stronger than ever the best way we know how— with a one-of-a-kind night of great music.”

“It's hard to believe that it's been a year since the flood,” said Opry member Dierks Bentley. “The city of Nashville, the Opry, and the country music community were so resilient and came together to rebuild so quickly after the devastation. I've never been more proud to be an Opry member, and I'm looking forward to celebrating that sense of community again on Tuesday.”

Dierks Proves To Be A Class Act For Fan Cecely

Just when Dierks Bentley fan, Cecely, thought her hopes were dashed to meet Dierks, a series of Tweets, raised them again.  Cecely drove over two hours from Nebraska to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, to get to her second Bentley concert--front row!  During the show, Dierks sang in front of her and held her hand for a second, but no guitar pic.

After the show, she and her friends waited in the cold for a chance to meet DB--but it wasn't to be.  See the Twitter conversation below:

From Cecely:
Hey @dierksbentley .I'm front row..can you give me a guitar pick please :)

Hey @dierksbentley can you meet us out back by your bus please ..thanks :)

Hey@dierkbentley I'm freezing my but off waiting for you outside

Well waited long enough I guess for @dierksbentley to get the feeling back in my body

From Dierks:
@itsmeCecely sorry cecely! we are headed out. I'll always sign an autograph or take a pic. didn't see anyone out there. thx for coming out

From Cecely:
@DierksBentley ok thanks time I guess love you and the show. It rocked

Then, Dierks replied:
“@itsmeCecely: Well waited long enough I guess for @dierksbentley to get the feeling back in my body”-sorry! still want to take a pic?


@DierksBentley omg. ..aaahhhh I'm out of town already..if u would wait like 15 min I would be there but I'm guessing you can't ;( I think I'm going to cry right now...I don't know if I should turn around and see @dierksbentley

@dierksbentley I'm turning around I'm coming please wait

@itsmeCecely actually.... we will wait. come back!

@DierksBentley omg I'm comming ahhh ur aweesome


This was an especially incredible story, since it was the very first time Cecely had met Dierks!  She told me she's not in the fan club but she's always wanted to join.  Her friend Tasha was with her and she was tweeting and texting for Cecely while she drove and Tasha got to meet Dierks, too.

"When I finally got back to the venue and found where he was," Cecely said, "he came out from his friends and was happy that I made it.  I told him thanks so much for waiting and taking the time to come talk to me.  He thanked me for coming to the show and mentioned that I waited a while for him and was sorry he didn't see us out there.  My friend Britney told him about my drive and he appreciated me driving out to the show.  We talked about his next show and about Easter.  I told him that I loved his show and always loved his performances. Then we took a picture and he signed my poster, then I let him go back to his friends and he told me that he loved meeting me and to have a safe trip home!"

I don't know about you, but I have NEVER heard of an artist who would invite, much less WAIT while a fan drove BACK to the venue!  Dierks Bentley is ONE CLASS ACT and this story is just another example of why I (and I suspect Cecely) will be a fan of his for life!

Dierks Bentley: A Man Possessed

Dierks Bentley plays Clear Lake, Iowa tonight, then continues his Jagermeister Country Tour in the midwest next week, with Wednesday's Salina, KS.  The Salina Journal posted this story:

"Don't be scared, but each time country singer Dierks Bentley goes on stage he becomes possessed.

"The rest of the day I'm pretty low-key, but once on stage I feed off the energy of the crowd," he said. "I get possessed. I can't believe I'm the same person at all."

Bentley's high-energy shows and radio-friendly songs have made him one of the more popular performers in country music.

Bentley, 35, is headlining the 2011 Jagermeister Country Tour, along with rising country stars Miss Willie Brown and Josh Thompson. They will perform at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Salina Bicentennial Center.

When people think of Jagermeister, a high-grade German liqueur, they think of partying, Bentley said.

"I'm here to fulfill that expectation," he said. "I want people to lose their voices from screaming and yelling."

AITOO Shows Strong Survey/Chart Positions

"Am I the Only One" continues its impressive climb up the charts this week, as it lands at #26 on Billboard this week (up 7 spots/over 2 million in audience!), and #30 on Mediabase (up 4 spots/2.5 million in audience). Be listening for the song on national countdown shows in the coming weeks! 

One survey program directors can use is Callout America, which is where a sample of listeners in 40 markets nationwide take part in a phone-call survey. I was pleasantly surprised to see that "Am I the Only One" debuted on Callout America this week at #14! The chart includes the general reader responses, such as the percentage who like/dislike the song, or are neutral. What I found particularly interesting was that not only was it the highest debut this week on the Callout America chart, it debuted well ahead of another song currently flying up the charts: Luke Bryan's new single, which is also Luke's fastest-rising single to date. This intrigued me because Luke debuted at #26 of 35 songs ... which indicates that although the song is garnering a ton of airplay and adds, it isn't necessarily the most publicly well-received song. (Zac Brown Band's "Colder Weather" is #1 on the chart.) 

For those of you who went to Nashville Country Club to sign up for their surveys, those survey results should post next week. So be sure to have your voice be heard! "Am I the Only One" can certainly already be considered a "hit" single, but let's do everything we can do to make sure we get our Prez to the top where he belongs!

Instructions from Dierks: How to Write A Song (for a Woman) - Esquire Magazine

You may remember Somewhere in Mississippi, Dierks Bentley's songwriting challenge for Esquire magazine's March 2010 project.  Now a year later, Dierks writes a ditty in and about Detroit, along with a fashion photo shoot in Motor City for the magazine again.  "...he wrote such a good song [last year] that we pretty much had to ask him back this year." (Esquire).  Now I know what you're thinking. Dierks + fashion photo shoot? This from the guy who wears a white T and backwards "Stubbs" cap 90% of the time?  Yep--and he wears Armani well, doesn't he?

The country soul of Detroit: "For a country singer, there's a connection to Detroit in that hardworking blue-collar people are the lifeblood of what we do. Every four years, politicians go out on the road and talk to real folks to get their votes. But that's what country singers do every day. We talk to the people before and after the show. We have a sense of what's going on without looking at the stock ticker."

This year, our DB prez also gives instructions on how to write a song for a woman and it's featured in the May issue on sale April 26:

How to Write a Song (for a Woman)
Instructions from a country star
By Dierks Bentley

Originally published in the May 2011 Music Issue, on sale any day now

Little story: I moved to Nashville when I was nineteen, and I started collecting songs I had been writing in a three-ring binder. I was getting great feedback from family and friends, so I was feeling pretty good when I took a job working at one of Nashville's many publishing companies answering phones. One Friday some of the writers invited me to hang with them at the end of the day and play a song. I pulled out my best tune when it was my turn. One guy told me I needed to write five hundred more songs, put them in a drawer, and then give him a call.

Luckily, your audience is going to be a lot more sympathetic.

The Instrument

Acoustic guitar: It's portable and every guy looks good playing it. And it suggests an appropriate measure of sensitivity. That, or a small Casio keyboard. If you can get the girl to start laughing before you've even uttered a word, then you're off to a good start. (With love songs, as with love, humor is underrated.)

The Music

Learn three chords: G, C, and D. If they're good enough for Bret Michaels and "Every Rose Has Its Thorn," they're good enough for you. And a really slow ballad is best.

Hum out a little melody, get to the chorus quickly, and keep it simple. Whatever you're playing is merely supporting your clever, sincere, heartfelt, and occasionally funny lyrics that she never in a million years expected you to sing. The right words are 90 percent of what you're going for. About the words ...

The Lyrics

Unless you've got Dr. Luke building you a monster track, you aren't going to be able to hide crappy lyrics behind the music. In fact, crappy music might be the foundation for your lyrics, so they need to be great. But greatness in this context is easy. You don't have to be Kris Kristofferson. (Or Mumford & Sons. I really dig their simple but gigantic lyrics.) A few tips:

Avoid the generic. The only reason Justin Bieber can get away with a whole chorus that uses only the words baby and ooh is because he's Justin Bieber. Specificity and originality beats cliché every time. So maybe instead of "I love you, I need you the rest of my life," go with "I could live without your love — I'd just have to get used to feeling numb the rest of my life."

The Delivery

When I perform, I always look at specific people to read their energy and feel what's going on in the room. The more they get into it, the more my energy level goes up. The bottom line is: Look at her.

It's probably best not to use a guitar pick; less noise to interfere with the lyrics.

And if you screw up, it's no big deal. When I forget the words during a show, I rewrite them on the spot. No one ever seems to mind. She won't either. (Some emergency rhymes: Crazy/baby, girl/world, apart/heart, desire/fire.) The key to screwing up a song is to laugh it off and press on. No matter what happens, good things are waiting for you after that last note.

DB Congress Reps Have Big Hearts

A few months ago, we lost one of our dear friends and fellow DB Congress representatives from Kentucky. Larissa died January 12, 2011 after a tragic accident in her wheelchair.

On behalf of the DB Congress, we sent flowers for the funeral and collected donations for the Spina Bifida Association and BRAWA (Barren River Animal Welfare Association), the animal shelter for Glasgow, KY in Larissa's name.

To say the members of the DBC were generous is an understatement.  They poured out their hearts and we were able to not only send a beautiful, red, white and blue large floral arrangement, but we also raised $100 for EACH charity! 

We miss you, Larissa!


This email is a confirmation that your online entry at the site of Barren River Animal Welfare Assn. was received. The following information was recorded:

Amount: $100.00

Comments: A generous contribution In Memory of Larissa Branham has been made by the Dierks Bentley Congress

"The members of the DB Congress make this donation in memory of Larissa Branham, a dedicated fan of Dierks Bentley and a wonderful friend to so many. She touched us all with her friendship, her smile, and her love of music. Larissa's memory will live in the hearts of all of us."


From SBA (in the amount of $100):

Am I the Only One Continues Fast Rise

Dierks Bentley's latest single, Am I the Only One, continued its march up the charts this week, moving up 4 spots to #33 in its 3rd week on Billboard, and moved to #34 (also up 4 spots) on Mediabase in its 2nd week. Additionally, it was on 21 new Billboard-monitored stations, and 19 new Mediabase-monitored stations. Across the broad spectrum of all country stations (some of which are not monitored and therefore don't report), there are only about 50 stations that aren't playing it. After 3 weeks, I don't think that's half bad. (It's already out-performed Draw Me a Map.) 

Am I the Only One is likely to move into the Top 30 next week, so for those of you whose radio stations are a "top 30 only" format, your time should come soon! Top 30 will also mean syndicated spins on the weekly countdown shows, as well as being added to radio surveys such as Rate The Music. Another great survey you might be interested in signing up for is over at Nashville Country Club, and those survey results are actually used in a chart that is included with the Billboard release every week, so in a few weeks we'll be able to get a sense of the survey audience reaction toward the song, as well. 

And CMT's news that the new video (featuring Jake!) will debut during their Big New Music Weekend April 22-24 should be welcome, too, and will only help add to the exposure for the song. 

If your station is one of the few still not playing the song, don't stop calling, tweeting, texting, and emailing your DJs to let them know you're ready to get your good time on with Dierks! Surely they don't want to be the only one not playing it!

Ridge is Greatest Gainer on the Bluegrass Album Chart

After 44 weeks on the Billboard, Dierks Bentley's Up On The Ridge album grasped the "Greatest Gainer" CD for week ending April 16, 2011.  The project that released June 8, 2010 spent months at #1 on the bluegrass chart, and comes in this week at #2, from #3 last week.  It also charted at #43 on the Country Album charts. Pretty impressive for a collection of songs that country radio didn't see fit to push to the top 20 in either single released (Up On The Ridge nor Draw Me A Map).

Fortunately, the next album is sure to be radio-friendly if the new single, "Am I The Only One?" is any indication.  Already at #37 in it's second week on the Billboard charts, AITOO is sure to shoot to the top of the singles just in time for the album to release in August.  Keep calling radio, congress!

Dierks Ready for N. Myrtle Beach & Reveals AITOO Video Star

Dierks Bentley's next stop on the Jagermeister Country Tour is Thursday (April 14, 2011) at the House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, SC.  No doubt DB Congress reps in GA, SC and NC are looking forward to the nearby DRT (Dierks Road Trip), and hearing DB sing his new single, "Am I The Only One?" live and in person!

Steve Palisin from recently interviewed Dierks by phone and found out that the video for "Am I the Only One?" will come out in about a month, according to Dierks.  Fans who like looking for his longtime white pooch, Jake, a star in Bentley's videos from the start with "What Was I Thinkin'?" won't be let down, either.  "He made a cameo in the new video," Bentley said.

Bentley, whose first name reflects his mother's maiden name, just put on his father's cap again. He and wife Cassidy, his high school sweetheart from Phoenix, welcomed a second daughter three months ago, joining their 21/2-year-old at home in Tennessee.

Getting back to the House of Blues, which he called a "great-sounding room," Bentley said he always tries to recline a bit on the sands.

"I love Myrtle Beach, and I love that coast," he said.

Dierks Donates Handwritten Lyrics to eBay Charity Auction For Japan Relief Efforts

Now through April 15, Dierks Bentley and other artists are participating in an eBay charity auction to aide the Red Cross earthquake and tsunami relief efforts in Japan, supporting victims of the devastation.

Dierks donated handwritten lyrics to his song, ‘Beautiful World,’ from the Feel That Fire album, plus a signed 'Up On The Ridge' CD, a signed photograph, Meet & Greet and concert tickets for four, and a signed football.

If you want to bid on these Dierks items and others, go to the official auction site. EMI has also generously pledged to match every donation up to $1 million Euros.

Dierks Discusses 'Diamonds' as Centerpiece for New Album

Dierks Bentley discusses his new upcoming album with Doug Pullen from Pulse.  Regarding his current single, "Am I The Only One," Dierks says, "It's a party anthem, appropriate for a tour sponsored by a liqueur consumed by the shot glass. "I'm finding out quickly every night that I am not the only one who wants to have fun."

After the last album, "Up On The Ridge," had a hard time breaking into the top 20 at radio, Dierks' next album, due out in August, will be more commercialized and radio-friendly.

He's thinking of calling it "Diamonds" for his new song "Diamonds Make Babies."

"For me," he said, "it's about girls in general, the years trying to put a diamond on a girl's finger ... and what happens after, like having babies. It's the centerpiece of the album."

The new record is "based on where I am in life" as a musician, husband and father of two daughters, ages 2 and 3 months. "I get on the bus every night with the guys in the band and play video games and guitars and drink beer and go to parties where people yell and I act like an idiot," he said. But Bentley said he was "lucky to marry a girl I had a crush on in the eighth grade (Cassidy Black) and have two beautiful little girls. I really feel like it all works its way into the music."

For Bentley, doing a rockin' tour after a bluegrass-flavored album makes perfect sense.

"I'm kind of yin and yang. I do one thing long enough and I want to do something else, so the amps are cranked up to 11, we're loud and rocking. The show is sponsored by Jager," he said. "But we break it down in the middle of the show, that's why it's great to have "Ridge," because we can break out the acoustic bass and banjos."

Am I the Only One Makes Big Debut

Talk about getting your good time on: "Am I the Only One" is proving to be the next Dierks Bentley smash hit at radio! It debuted this week on Mediabase's chart at #38, and in its second week on Billboard, moved 10 spots to #37! It was also this week's second-most-added song at both Billboard and Mediabase, so it seems Music and Program Directors are not being very shy about adding the song! That being said, there's still LOTS of room for improvement and plenty of stations that haven't picked it up, but we'll make it easy for them since this song is sure to be in the Top 30 within the next two weeks. 

If you haven't heard the song on your local station, what are you waiting for? Call, tweet, text, and/or email your local DJs and let them know you want to get your good time on and hear the song on the radio!  

See ya next week with more good news!

Dierks Bentley - 2011 ACM Awards Photos

I keep telling myself how amazing it is that our favorite artist, Dierks Bentley, was recognized as one of only 6 nominees for his incredible Up On The Ridge album.  That's 6 out of hundreds!  I know, right!  Then why are we so upset?  The ACMs NOT awarding Dierks the AOTY trophy was the last straw after the CMAs and the Grammy's denied him this award as well.  Someday the industry will realize what we already know! Enjoy the photos!
