NASHVILLE, TN - Oct. 8, 2018 - Current three-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley unveils the official music video for his Top 20 single "Burning Man" (feat. Brothers Osborne) today with Esquire. Longtime director and collaborator Wes Edwards intertwines Bentley's musical and personal evolution with California’s Salton Sea as the backdrop.
“This song is a personal reflection and it was important to me that you feel that with the video,” said Bentley. “The Bros and I flew out to the desert in July to shoot this...several people on the crew had heat strokes, two cars got stuck in the sand and we had to have a rattlesnake wrangler with us at all times...but we got the shots!”

Fusing propulsive beats with booming vocals and guitars to describing a restless spirit with his feet firmly on the ground, the earthy cinematography behind the "Burning Man" music video features Bentley and Brothers Osborne across rugged terrains, giving a “rousing ode to middle-aged duality” (Paste). Nominated for CMA "Musical Event of the Year" along with his CMA nods for "Album" and "Male Vocalist," Bentley's latest single proves why he is "one of the format's leading, male hit-makers" (NPR) who manifests "authenticity in every component" (PEOPLE).

The multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter "has one of Country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity" (Forbes). Reaching a new creative high, he co-wrote 10 of THE MOUNTAIN's (Capitol Records Nashville) 13 tracks, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album. Bentley has amassed billions of digital streams, countless nominations from the ACMs, Billboard Music Awards and more while earning 13 GRAMMY nominations – including at least one stemming from each of his last six albums. After hosting capacity crowds throughout the summer during his 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR where "expectations were instantly met and exceeded" (Arizona Republic) Bentley will wrap the run this weekend with stops in San Diego, CA (10/12) before Los Angeles, CA’s Hollywood Bowl (10/13).
