Dierks grew up listening to Hank Williams and George Strait. Dierks and his father would listen to the country artists together and it wasn’t long after they began listening together that Dierks picked up an electric guitar and went from listener to musician. Dierks Bentley stuck with rock, the music he and his friends listened to however when a friend introduced Dierks to the Hank Williams Jr., song “Man to Man”, Dierks knew he was a country music songwriter and artist.
At age nineteen, Dierks moved to Nashville Tennessee. He dabbled a bit in blue grass and mixed it with the country he knew. Dierks studied and had an appreciation for the country music artists that have paved the way for present and future country music songwriters and artists. Dierks had a part time job at The Nashville Network going through footage of old country performances which only increased his desire to learn and increased his appreciation for those artists who came before him.
Capitol Nashville released Bentley’s debut and self-titled album in 2003. The first single to be released from the album, “What Was I Thinkin” hit number one. “My Last Name” and “How Am I Doin”, two other singles from the debut album were also released and peaked at number seventeen and number four. The Album went platinum.
In 2005, Dierks released his second album through Capitol, Modern Day Drifter. There were two smash hit singles that made it to number one on Bentley’s second album; “Come a little Closer” and “Settle for a Slowdown”. A third single reached number three which was “Lot of Leavin Left to do”. 2005 was a good year for Dierks Bentley as he was also awarded the CMA Horizon Award now known as Best New Artist and was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on October 1, 2005.
