As promised, Dierks Bentley just dropped the new tune “Gone,” which was written by Nicolle Galyon, Ben Johnson and Niko Moon. The track is song about heartbreak, with Dierks taking the role of a guy who is mentally gone due to the end of a relationship.
“When it came time to go cut some stuff, this song just rose to the top and I gravitated towards it because I love the title," Dierks shares. “I love the classic country wordplay, ‘Ever since you left, I’ve been gone,’ but he actually hasn’t gone anywhere.”
And fans are going to get to see Dierks perform the song live for the first time tonight when he hits the stage for the “2020 iHeartCountry Festival” airing at 8:00PM EG on LiveXLive.
