Dierks Bentley’s new single is called “Living” and that is exactly what Dierks sets out todo each day even with the ordinary pleasures of life.

Dierks said yesterday, “What brings me joy? My five-year-old is doing jujitsu today at 5 and watching him do jujitsu, I can be on my phone all the time or I can be watching him learn these little moves and stuff. There’s a lot of living in the ordinary.”

He adds, “I’m always looking for some adventure and I have things planned down the road, big adventures, but just like in the ordinary day to day stuff… there was a full moon the other night. People don’t even realize what the lunar schedule is what the moon’s doing, what the stars are doing. It’s like we live in these boxes. If you go outside and really take it in for a second and just look up thee Ir’s like, ‘Wow, this is incredible it’s up there all the time.’ It definitely a big living moment.”

Earlier this week, Bentley was nominated for four Academy of Country Music Awards including  Album of the Year for his The Mountain project.
