It’s been over a year since one of Dierks Bentley’s tracks hit the country music scene.

Back in February 2019, he released his #1 smash song, “Living.” 

The title of his new quarantine banger, “Gone,” funnily enough, has the opposite message.

Dierks Bentley said that he wasn’t sure if he wanted to record a song that was directly about the present 2020 moment.

"I like that this song is about a relationship. A girl left him and now the guy's gone. He hasn't gone anywhere. He's just losing his mind at home," Bentley said in an interview.

”I do like that it's called ‘Gone' because it does touch upon the times we're in.” He said, “And it's personal to me because I've been totally gone.”

Well, he may have disappeared for a bit, but he's back in full force. And, of course, he always has his wife beside him.

How did Cassidy and Dierks Bentley meet?

Dierks and Cassidy first met in their home state of Arizona during their eighth-grade year of school. The highschool — or is it middle school? — sweethearts dated off and on, breaking up as much as they were getting back together.

"It’s a pretty crazy story of just going back and forth with the right time or the wrong time, or right place, wrong time, all that stuff," Dierks said in an interview, "Finally, I was playing a show in Las Vegas, and opening for George Strait, and she walked on the bus. I kind of knew that that was the moment."

By December 2005, the two were happily engaged.

And by December 2005, the two were also happily married. After he popped the question, the lovebirds eloped three days later. They've been married ever since. 

“[Cassidy] is who grounds me, she is also the one who has helped me to grow as a person over all these years, so I feel if I'm going to tell these stories [on an album] right, I need to start with her," Dierks said.

Dierks Bentley's wife's music video is called Black. 

In fact, the entire album Black is named after Cassidy. Black is Cassidy’s maiden name, hence the title of the album.

But that’s not all — she even starred in the music video for the title song.
