Brothers Osborne aren't just Dierks Bentley's touring partners this summer. They also help kick off his new album, The Mountain, by singing on the record's first track.
Dierks says his attraction to "Burning Man" was instant.
“I felt an immediate connection to the lyrics," he tells People. "The idea that we all are a little bit of everything…a little bit holy water and a little bit burning man…really resonated with me."
"Burning Man" tips its hat to the annual festival in Nevada's Black Rock Desert that's focused on art and self-expression. Now, Dierks' song is poised to become a stand-out on his Mountain High Tour.
“I’ve never heard a song communicated like this in country music before," Dierks explains. "I love Brothers Osborne both as musicians and people and I knew they would connect to the song like I did. Performing it with them is certainly a highlight in the show for me. We all can’t wait to hear the crowd singing along with us.”
You can stream or download "Burning Man" now, and if you're an Apple Music subscriber, you can also check out Dierks' new video for the the tune.
