Blogs are popping up all over the web listing their best albums of 2012, and a few have honored our prez, Dierks Bentley's, "Home" CD.
1. The Washington Post. Sliding in at number 9, “Home” is one of only two country albums to make the list:
"Seems like every man in Nashville wants to be the Nashville Everyman. Here, Bentley actually pulls it off, singing from various vantages with smarts and charm. Bonus points for the patriotic title track, which still sounds sensible after an election season that left America covered in red-and-blue bruises."
2. The Boot. The AOL-owned website features their top 12 best albums of the year. Dierks takes the #9 slot on this list as well.
"This was Dierks' first return to mainstream country after releasing his bluegrass album, Up on the Ridge, in 2010, and it reminds us why his songwriting is so compelling in any genre. Each song is a stand-out, but perhaps none are as poignant as the title track. The song was partly inspired by the devastating Tucson, Arizona shooting that wounded 19 people (including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords) and killed six."
I'm sure we haven't heard the last of the "Best" lists for 2012 and we fully expect Dierks to be on many more to come!
If you find one, please send us the link so we can share with all the DB Congress!
