Dierks Bentley Says His Wife Inspired His Song ‘Black

“BLACK” is the name of Dierks Bentley’s latest album project.  Dierks says, “I wrote the song ‘Black.’ I loved the song and it had this kind of relationship, sexy thing going on. My wife’s maiden name is Black, and so it has these layers to it. Our 10th anniversary has come and gone, so it kind of sparked an idea of a relationship-type record. I think she heard the song and she really liked it, and then as the album started growing, it became less of just about her and more just about this journey in general – this guy going through these ebbs and flows in different relationships and trying to figure it all out.”
