Dierks Bentley Is Back With New Single, “Gone” [Listen]

Dierks Bentley is back on country radio with the release of new single, “Gone.”

Penned by Nicolle Galyon, Ben Johnson and Niko Moon, “Gone” is Dierks first single on the solo front since the release of “Living” in February 2019.

The gritty new tune finds a heartbroken Dierks ghosting family and friends at home as he croons about lost love: “I’ve been gone, I’ve been gone / I’ve been sittin’ on the couch watching TV all day long / All day long I’ve been tryin’ to figure out how a good thing went wrong / Faster than that freight train, farther than that airplane / Sadder than a country song / Headed down that highway, anywhere but my way / Ever since you moved on, I’ve been gone.”

“Country music is the best genre for storytelling, and I feel like we are realizing it probably now more than ever since we can’t congregate together at concerts, high five each other, sing and shout at the top of our lungs,” says Dierks. “A good country show is just about the greatest communion there is out there. We are all relying on lyrics and melodies at home and trying however we can to find different ways to connect with our fans, so that they know how important they still are to us. I hope this song resonates with mine, and I’m counting the days until we can all be back together again, beers in the air.”
