Dierks Bentley is an American country singer with a dozen Top 10 country hits and 7 studio albums since 2003.
Dierks Bentley was born on November 20, 1975 in Phoenix, Arizona. He learned to play the electric guitar at age 13. Like any kids in the '80s, he spent his time listening to rock trying to sound like Van Halen. But his taste began to change after a friend introduced him to the songs of Hank Williams Jr.
His father moved to New Jersey where he finished high school. He studied at the University of Vermont, then moved to the country music capital, Nashville in 1994 and studied English at Vanderbilt University. Why English? He reason that it was the closest thing to songwriting he could find. Eventually, he dropped out and began playing for long hours at clubs, getting himself absorbed by the scene for the next few years.
He got a job with The Nashville Network (now Spike TV), researching country music performances, which he considered as a great opportunity to grow artistically. At the station he was able to see old tapes of country music performances as far back as the 1940s which had greatly enriched his knowledge on the genre and helped develop his style.
He played nights at various venues all over town, and recorded a demo, which lead to a songwriting deal. In 2003, he was signed to Capitol Nashville. His 1st self-titled album contained the No. 1 hit "What Was I Thinkin" and sold over one million copies which earned Dierks a Platinum certification. A generous performer, he takes really good care of the fans, giving them enlivening long shows more than their tickets' worth. His tireless touring has helped broaden his fan base. In 2005, alone, he gave more than 300 performances.
He also released a DVD, The Dierks Bentley Experience, filmed in 2006. He writes songs mostly about forbidden love, alcoholism, and cheating. He's very open minded to other kinds music which he could incorporate into his style. One of his highly respected albums is the bluegrass-influenced Up on the Ridge. Potential groupies would be highly frustrated by the fact that he's happily married.
