Dierks Bentley Scores 17th No. 1 Single as “Woman, Amen” Hits the Top of the Charts

Dierks Bentley Scores 17th No. 1 Single as “Woman, Amen” Hits the Top of the Charts

Dierks Bentley scored the 17th No. 1 single of his career as “Woman, Amen” reached the top of both the Billboard Country Airplay chart and the Mediabase chart.

The tune is the lead single from Dierks’ ninth studio album, The Mountain, which dropped on June 8. The impetus for the album’s creation was Dierk’s June 2017 performance at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in the town of Telluride in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado. Dierks returned to Telluride a short time later for a week-long retreat with fellow songwriters Natalie Hemby, Luke Dick, Ross Copperman, Jon Randall, Jon Nite and Ashley Gorley and wrote the bulk of the album’s songs, including the title track.

However, “Woman, Amen” was penned by Dierks, Josh Kear and Ross Copperman in Nashville in between the Telluride Bluegrass Festival and his songwriting retreat.

“My wife and our relationship has been the one constant element in my life over all the ups and downs of my career and personal life,” said Dierks. “Our journey together has made me the man I am today. I doubt my heart would even recognize the old me. This song addresses that in the most direct possible way. The personal gratitude expressed in the lyrics, mixed with a track that leans heavily on some bigger sounds, is the perfect way to introduce the album.”
