Dierks Bentley is truly becoming one with the mountains since releasing his ninth studio album titled, The Mountain, in June.
Recording the entire album in Colorado, the 42-year-old father of three found a certain peace out West to unleash his creativity. Being out in the midst of the Rocky mountains of Colorado had a large affect on Dierks.
“I found myself there, constantly reaching for my guitar,” Bentley said. “It was like a gravitational pull.”
That pull has now brought Dierks back out West to the Tetons in Wyoming to do some mountain climbing. The “Woman, Amen” singer took to Instagram to share the stunning pictures from his latest trip. Keeping with the mountain theme going, Dierks scaled Tetons with the help of a couple of guides, Blake Mycoskie and Doug Workman.
Blake also shared the photos, giving Dierks a rave review of his climbing abilities. “@dierksbentley crushed his first ⛰ climb in the Tetons,” Blake wrote. “He might of shaved the beard but don’t be fooled, still 100% mountain man and always looking for one a bit higher #living.”
Dierks’ next stop will take him back out West for his inaugural Seven Peaks Festival in Buena Vista, Colorado over a three day period, Aug. 31 – Sept. 2. Miranda Lambert, Brothers Osborne, Clint Black, Sawyer Brown, Terri Clark and Dan + Shay are a few of the country artists joining Dierks on the bill.
