Dierks Teams Up With Brothers Osborne
Dierks Bentley’s soon-to-be-released album, The Mountain, includes a collaboration with Brothers Osborne called “Burning Man.” Dierks loved the song from the first time he heard it, and says it’s something he knew TJ and John Osborne would’ve have probably recorded themselves had Dierks not found it first.
“You know, I’m on tour with Brothers Osborne this year. I’m a huge fan of those guys. They’re friends. We play in a side band together, a ‘90s country cover band called the Hot Country Knights with a K for anyone who wants to look us up. So, we’re just pals, and it’s like this song feels like something that they would sing, you know? It feels like if they’d got this one before I did, they probably would’ve cut it. I’ve never had someone on tour with me – anyone who’s on tour with me is someone I just love. I’ve never had anyone out there that I’m not a huge fan of or I don’t totally believe in, and I’ve never had that plus also had a song we could do together out on the road that’s on an album. It was so easy. I just called ‘em up and sent the song and got a huge ‘Yes’ back from both of them right away. They came into the studio like two days later. It was just a great hang. (I) got great footage of all that stuff.”
“Burning Man,” as well as Dierks’ latest hit “Woman, Amen,” are included on his new album, The Mountain, due out June 8th.
