Dierks Bentley has a brand new single at radio this week called "Gone." He recently recorded the song and tells us it sums up a lot about 2020. ["When it came time to go cut some stuff this song kind of rose to the top and I gravitated towards it because I love the title, I love a good classic country word play — you know, 'ever since you left I've been gone,' but he actually hasn't gone anywhere. I feel like I've been gone, I feel like we've all been gone. I feel like country music in 2020 is just gone, so it touches on a little bit of the idea of what's been going on here with COVID but it does in a metaphorical way through a relationship."] SOUNDCUE (:24 OC: . . . through a relationship.)
Dierks will perform "Gone" for the first time during the 2020 iHeartCountry Festival which will be livestreamed tonight (Friday, Oct. 23rd) at 8 p.m. ET.
