The “Burning Man” Singer Dierks Bentley Turns 43 Today


Following his fantastic performance of “Burning Man” with Brothers Osborne at the CMA Awards last Wednesday (Nov. 14), Dierks Bentley is up for something more personal at this time. For sure, many of his fans do not forget today is his birthday. If you’ve been reminded by this just now, go ahead, find a way to send him your birthday greetings and best wishes.

The singer, born Frederick Dierks Bentley on November 20, 1975, just turned 43 and life seems to be getting more fun for him. While Bentley did not win any of his nominations at the 2018 CMA Awards (Album of the Year, Musical Event of the Year, and Male Vocalist of the Year), he’s still lucky to receive three nods from the voting members. Moreover, after having ended his 2018 Mountain High Tour last month, the “Woman, Amen” singer is preparing again for his upcoming tour. His Burning Man Tour with Jon Pardi and Tenille Townes will kick-off January 17 next year.

A Few Things About the Birthday Celebrator

Dierks Bentley hails from Phoenix, Arizona and is one of the few natives from that state to make it in the Country Music Capital of the World. His primary purpose in moving to Nashville was to finish college. He went on doing odd jobs while refining his musical skills. Eventually, he ended up signing with Capitol Nashville in 2003. That same year, he released his eponymous debut album. To date, the singer already has nine studio albums, his latest The Mountain was out last June.

At least 15 of Bentley’s 25 charting singles reached the top. His first-ever hit was “What Was I Thinkin’” earning him his first No. 1 record on Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. To some, the song remains Bentley’s greatest hit up to the present. The up-tempo ballad was co-penned by Bentley with Deric Ruttan and Brett Beavers. He was known for recording original songs. Additionally, his bluegrass influence continues to be a significant element of his country music brand. Whenever possible, the singer tries blending it with his materials. Likewise, the lyrical content of his songs is oftentimes light but deeply personal.

Bentley is married to Cassidy Black and blessed with three kids – Evie, Jordan, and Knox.
