Dierks Bentley’s latest, “I Hold On,” has cracked the Top 10 at country radio, and Dierks is thrilled.

The song comes from the loss of his father, the love of his wife and so much more, he tells ABC News Radio.

“If there was ever a song that I wanted to be on radio, it would be ‘I Hold On,’ because it’s such a reflection of me,” Dierks says.

“Honestly, it’s about my truck, about my guitar, and it’s a reflection of these values that we all have—faith, love and freedom—but it’s also a love song to my wife. You know, so it’s very personal at the end,” he says.

“It has this bigger meaning for all of us, but at the end, it’s still like, this is my, like, kind of love song to my wife.”
