For my money, “Living” was absolutely a highlight on Dierks’ critically-acclaimed album, and our #1 album of the year, The Mountain. As a powerful reminder to break free from the monotony of our day-to-day and really embrace the lives we live, I found myself really trying to push deeper into that message.
No doubt, it was a message that resonated with fans as well, and with that, Dierks will be sending “Living” to country radio as his next single.
“The idea for this song started from being on the road and realizing how little ‘living’ we were actually doing out there,” said Bentley.
“Whole days would go by where you never leave the bus and all you would see is the back parking lot of the arena. Going to Walgreens was a big deal! That is when the idea was born that there is a true difference between being alive and actually ‘living.’ This song is certainly about big moments in life and adventure…but it’s more about finding the beauty and that feeling in everyday moments. My goal for 2019 is to get outdoors and seek adventure whenever possible while also being fully present and living in even the ordinary moments…whether it be my son’s hockey practice and my girls’ theater performances or sitting around the table having dinner in catering with my band and crew.”
