Long Trip Alone by Dierks Bentley

Dierks’ third album has a spring in its step that his sophomore effort, last year’s Modern Day Drifter, was lacking. There’s an energy and sure-footedness to Long Trip Alone that can only be earned onstage, pleasing one demanding crowd after another—and Dierks is one of country’s most well-known road dogs, spending much of the year on tour. Trouble is, on Long Trip Alone Dierks sings about almost nothing but life on the road. Such singleminded focus leaves the listener who’s trying to relate to these unceasingly road-bound songs stuck on the side of the highway.
