A: I feel like I’m always a student of songwriting, a student of recording, and hopefully I’m able to continue to be a better songwriter. I feel like with my live shows, every night, I learn something new about the stage and what I do up there and how to engage the audience more and how to dive deeper into the show. … And just balancing the road with family and how to make that work, that’s a never-ending challenge that I feel like I’m getting better at, but it’s always a learning process for sure.

The new atmosphere yielded the most focused and intense vocals of Bentley’s career. Some were recorded live with the band as the musicians laid down the tracks, but others were captured in less-than-obvious locales. One track’s vocal was recorded on Bentley’s tour bus. Still others were cut at Copperman’s house with the producer literally at Bentley’s side, pushing him to some of his most emotional, and seasoned, performances.
And that was just the first of four songs Bentley shared from his latest release. He also played the title track, “Woman, Amen” and “Living,” the song he set up with that speech about living.
The rest of the set was an entertaining mix of longtime Bentley concert staples, including such crowd-pleasing highlights as “What Was I Thinkin’,” “Sideways” and the encore-closing “Free and Easy (Down the Road I Go),” and highlights of his four most recent albums.

He was very into the show, he wasn’t a bore. He interacted with the audience and was hilarious doing so. I have always loved his music and was glad to hear some of the old ones as well as the new ones, though in my opinion the older songs was a bigger hit (everyone was singing).

Then last year, after a grueling tour, Dierks approached the fall and winter feeling the need to throw out the rule book and indulge in the sounds that brought him to the show. The song that set the tone for the project and gave it its title was inspired by some time spent on an actual ridge – a plot of land Dierks bought in rural Williamson County with no buildings except an old barn and a commanding view of hills, fields and trees. Dierks finally arranged a long-sought writing session with Angelo, a lyrical and sonic wizard who’d come to Dierks’ attention working with Kim Richey but who’d gone on to rock production stardom with the Kings of Leon. A conversation about the good time possibilities of hanging out on the ridge matched with Angelo’s spooky, mantra-like guitar riff, and the gritty title track was born.
