Dierks Bentley's new song Woman Amen


Below, Bentley chats with The Boot about the story behind "Woman, Amen."

I wrote "Woman, Amen" with the same guy I wrote "Drunk on a Plane" with. Josh Kear brought that idea to me. I heard it, and I just thought, "I don't know what that is, but I love it." It was the same thing when I first heard "Drunk on a Plane" -- I love drinking, and I love planes -- and with "Woman, Amen" I had that same feeling of, I don't know what that is, but let's just write it.

I loved the message. It's very direct, and very honest for me in my relationship with my wife. I feel more grateful for her every year that goes along. I get so caught up in the music, and she helps steer me through all the work and being out on the road, and just helping me be the man that I am. She has more vision in some ways -- as most women do.

I think it's a good way to start the album. The album is a big, inclusive thing, with all these songs about living, or the mountains, the sun, lots of nature and landscape and fields. But this all starts at home, with her.
