Country superstar Dierks Bentley performs his new single, “Woman, Amen,” live at the Grand Ole Opry.

Before becoming a hit-making country artist, there was a day when Dierks Bentley was researching footage of old country performances at The Nashville Network and dreaming of someday being in the clips he was watching. Inspired, the Arizona-born artist released his first album, Don’t Leave Me in Love, in 2001. Though the album wasn’t an instant hit, it was a wonderful transition into his sophomore effort, a self-titled album on the Capitol Nashville label.

Bentley’s single “What Was I Thinkin’” took off, reaching No.1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart and solidifying the record as certified Platinum by the RIAA.

From there, Bentley’s popularity flourished. His follow-up album, Modern Day Drifter, produced two No.1 singles, “Settle Down for Sundown” and “Come a Little Closer,” earning him the CMA Horizon Award for Best New Artist and the distinction of being the third youngest country artist to ever be asked into the prestigious Grand Ole Opry.

Recently, during the Nashville stop on his Mountain High Tour, Bentley did an all-acoustic performance of his latest single, “Woman, Amen,” from his upcoming ninth studio album, The Mountain. Watch Bentley and his band below.
