For some, Valentine’s Day is a romantic day filled with kisses, flowers and chocolate. For husband and father of three, Dierks Bentley, the day takes on a different reality.
Dierks explains, “I’m gonna be the voice of truth and honesty for Valentine’s Day for a lot of the guys out there listening and for some of the girls listening, as well too. You may like this; you may not, but Valentine’s Day is a really difficult day for guys. When you’re single, it’s stressful for like a month leading up to it, and inevitably, you do something wrong. You don’t get the wrong thing or you say too much, and she’s wanting to get engaged faster than you want to get engaged. I don’t know. It’s just a very stressful holiday. I’m at a time in my life where we’re just really trying to survive on a day-to-day basis. I mean, we get about four hours of sleep, and we’re literally in survival mode. So, I think there should be a hall pass for guys in that phase of their life. It doesn’t take much at this stage for us to get excited. A dinner alone is heaven. I mean, if we can just have a dinner and a glass of wine, that’s awesome.”
His 2018 Mountain High tour, featuring special guests Brothers Osborne and LANCO, kicks off on May 17th in Columbia, MD.
Dierks is climbing the charts with “Woman, Amen,” the debut single from his upcoming album, The Mountain.
