My fiance got me some Beats by Dre headphones, and they are everything they are hyped to be. Super distinct sound with low bass and bright treble, the clarity and definition is hard to beat in any sound environment. As I simultaneously tested my new headphones and checked the Twitterverse, I ran into a tweet by Dierks Bentley and CMT promoting Dierks' newest album, "Riser" and the album's namesake song (yes, "Riser") and I am really excited about it. The album will be released, at least on iTunes, on 25 Feb and I will be putting "Riser" in my country playlist. It features an awesome set of guitars with combinations of picking and strumming that was nothing if not enhanced by my new Beats. Dierks talks about it being an inspirational song and album, about rising after failure. Wait for it... maybe Kentucky's Basketball team will be a "Riser" after that miserable showing on Saturday. There it is.
I watched the promotional video, which is great, linked from the tweet. but you can click straight to it here.
This album includes his newest singles "Bourbon in Kentucky" and "I Hold On", and Dierks has proven he is more than relevant. This is going to be a great new album of country music.
