Sometimes I like to listen to an entire CD from start to finish just to see if there are any hidden gems that haven't been released to radio yet. Yesterday, while I was riding the stationary bike, I decided to listen to Dierks Bentley's new CD Riser from start to finish and found this little gem. There is no "official" video for it but I found this ameture one. 

Riser  is the seventh studio album by Dierks Bentley. It was released on February 25, 2014, by Capitol Records Nashville. Riser debuted at number 6 on the US Billboard 200 selling 63,000 copies in its opening week, becoming his seventh top ten album.

The album includes the singles "Bourbon in Kentucky", "I Hold On", and "Drunk on a Plane". The album was originally scheduled to be released in the fall of 2013, but the first single peaked at number 45 on the Country Airplay chart, becoming Bentley's lowest-charting single. The label decided to postpone the album's release date, and quickly began promoting the album's second single "I Hold On", which reached number 1 on Country Airplay. "Drunk on a Plane" is the album's third single.

Bentley told Roughstock that “You have one ear monitor in, one ear out, and the crowd’s there and your voice feels really great. There’s a certain amount of gravel to it because you’re tired, but you’re all jacked up on whatever you're drinking and adrenaline, and the crowds and the fans are there and there’s this feeling, fists in the air—it’s that thing that’s hard to transfer into a studio environment. There’s a rawness.”

"I Hold On" is one of my favorite songs off this album. I listen to it over and over again. This song is probably my second favorite. I'm not a big fan of "Drunk on a Plane".
