Platinum-selling country superstar, Dierks Bentley, has released the scorching official music video for his latest top 20 single “Burning Man,” featuring Grammy-nominated country duo Brothers Osborne. Featured on Bentley’s ninth studio album, The Mountain, “Burning Man” was penned by Bobby Pinson and Luke Dick. This song depicts the idea of being a walking contradiction and the growth of the human spirit.
Partially filmed at the Salton Sea in the California desert, director and collaborator Wes Edwards combined the jagged terrain and stunning ocean views with a glimpse of the singer-songwriter’s tour life which executed the song’s essence. In a recent press release, Bentley said, “This song is a personal reflection and it was important to me that you feel that with the video.”
Though shooting this video for “Burning Man” was no walk in the park, Bentley was pleased with the way it turned out. “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!” shared Bentley in a recent press release. “Burning Man” is up for a 2018 CMA Award for Musical Event of the Year. Additionally, the multi-platinum singer-songwriter received two other nominations for Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for The Mountain.
Bentley will wrap up his ‘Mountain High Tour’ with Brothers Osborne and LANCO this upcoming weekend in Southern California. Visit https://www.dierks.com/ for further information and follow Bentley on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for updates and future announcements.
