Dierks Bentley Song I Hold On Lyrics Pin Spiritual Questions To Material Possessions

Dierks Bentley has released a new single to country radio. ‘I Hold On’ is from his forthcoming album, ‘Riser.’

Bentley wrote the new song with Brett James. The lyrics pin spiritual questions to material possessions.

“If you asked me to sum myself up in three minutes, I’d play ‘I Hold On’ for you. At first listen, you might think it’s about my truck or my guitar, but it’s really about why I do some of the things I do and the kind of guy I am,” explains Bentley.

He adds, “The chorus is really universal…it’s about faith, love and freedom…I don’t think there’s a country fan out there who doesn’t live with those as big priorities. I hope through this song I’m able to let the fans into my heart and my mind a little more, and that they can also relate it back to themselves and their own lives.”

‘Riser’ is Bentley’s seventh solo album, and it’s a departure for the singer-songwriter. “I wanted the album to be heavier and a little darker,” Bentley tells Billboard. “I think a good country album should have a little bit of it all.”

No release date has been announced for ‘Riser.’



“I Hold On”

[Verse 1]
Its just an old beat up truck, some say that I should trade up
Now that I got some jangle in my pocket
But what they don’t understand is just the miles that make a man
I wouldn’t trade that thing in for a rocket
What they don’t know is my dad and me, we drove around to Tennessee
And she’s still here and now he’s gone
So I hold on..

[Verse 2]
Its just an old beat up box, some say its just a rusted top
It probly don’t look like much to you
But these dents and scratches in the wood, yea that’s what makes it sound so good
To me its better than brand new
Yea see this here flat top guitar, has had my back in a million bars
Singing every country song
So I hold on..

To the things, I believe in
My faith, your love, our freedom
To the things I can count on
To keep me going strong
Yeah I hold on, I hold on..

Like the stripes to the flag, like a boy to his dad
I cant change who I am, right or wrong
So I hold on..

[Verse 3]
Yeah baby lookin at you right now, there ain’t never been no doubt
Without you I’d be nothing
So if you ever worry about.. me walkin out
Yeah let me tell you something..
I hold on.. I hold on..
Can you hear me baby.. I hold on

[repeat chorus]


Carrie Underwood Live Performance Of “The Sound Of Music” Airs Dec 5.

Carrie Underwood clearly doesn’t see the need for much down time. The Oklahoma native will wrap up her current run of dates on Sept. 13, and then immediately head to New York City to begin rehearsals for a live performance of ‘The Sound of Music,’ which will air on NBC on Dec. 5. And after that? Her new album, of course.

“After [‘The Sound of Music’], I feel like I can really buckle down and start working on the next album,” she tellsBillboard, hinting that she may tone down the next tour. “I haven’t thought about it much because I don’t know what the next album is going to sound like, but I like just standing there and singing, too. I may take a different approach, a more simple approach on the next one, I don’t know.”

The singer pulled out all the stops for her ‘Blown Away’ tour, utilizing nine buses, 16 trucks, 89 people and more than 2600 pounds of confetti. The large stage production, she says, was due in part to her love of rock concerts growing up.

“I loved the energy that rock concerts had,” Underwood explains. “So œthe Blown Away tourž was me wanting that and me wanting really cool light stuff happening around me. We tried to incorporate the best of all worlds into our little stage show.”

The ‘See You Again’ singer has upcoming shows in Oregon, Michigan and Texas. See the remainder of her upcoming concerts here.

Taylor Swift Chipped Tooth Accident

Taylor Swift chipped her tooth on stage.

The 23-year-old singer accidentally hit herself in the face with her microphone while she was belting out hit song ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ during her ‘Red’ show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, causing permanent damage to her pearly whites.

Speaking to Rolling Stone a few days after the incident, Taylor explained: ”Tonight I was particularly hung up on not chipping another tooth like last show in Pittsburgh, definitely. It had a tip on [the tooth] and it doesn’t anymore.

”I try to be really quick with the microphone, so I’m not standing there just waiting to sing with my mic right next to my face, so I really quickly pulled my mic up to sing and basically uppercut punched myself in the tooth.”

Taylor is no stranger to embarrassing stage malfunctions, and was memorably left red-faced when her skirt blew up to reveal her big white underpants in front of a sell-out crowd in St. Louis in 2011.

The ‘Everything Has Changed’ hitmaker was also mortified when Kanye West stormed the stage at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards as she was being presented with the Best Female Video prize.

The rapper cut her off, grabbed the mic and launched into an angry rant about why Beyonce should have won instead of Taylor.

Taylor Swift hit herself in the face with her microphone during a recent gig, causing her to chip a tooth.

Mindy McCready Dead At 37 Apparent Self-Inflicted Gunshot

Mindy McCready, a country singer better known recently for her ongoing personal troubles than for her string of late-’90s hits, died Sunday of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound in her Arkansas home, the Cleburne County sheriff said.

Sheriff Marty Moss said his office received a call to the McCready home around 3:30 p.m. local time in Heber Springs, Ark., west of Memphis and north of Little Rock.

“Ms. McCready is deceased from what appears to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” Moss told USA TODAY.

In a statement, he said officers arrived on the scene at 3:58 p.m. and found McCready’s body on the front porch. The case is under investigation but self-inflicted gunshot is the preliminary finding; McCready will be transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy. Moss said her family has been notified of her death.

Earlier Sunday night, Dateline NBC correspondent Andrea Canning tweeted, “Just got a call from Mindy McCready’s best friend that she shot and killed herself this evening. My heart breaks for her two boys.” Nashville television reporter Stacy McCloud tweeted that four sources, including a member of McCready’s family, had confirmed the singer’s suicide and that a statement from the family was in the works.

As the news spread, members of the country music community began tweeting their reactions, including Carrie Underwood, who wrote, “I grew up listening to Mindy McCready …so sad for her family tonight. Many prayers are going out to them.”

“Really really sad to learn the news about Mindy McCready,” Chely Wright tweeted. “I will pray for her children and I hope that people are gentle with her memory.”

McCready’s country hits hits included her 1996 debut single, Ten Thousand Angels, and the chart-topping Guys Do It All the Time. She released her last album, I’m Still Here, in 2010.

Canning interviewed McCready for Dateline after the singer’s boyfriend, record producer David Wilson, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound last month.

“I just started screaming, calling 911” after Wilson shot himself, McCready told Canning. “I laid down next to him. I just pleaded with him not to die.”

McCready entered rehab shortly after Wilson’s death.

The couple’s son, Zayne, was born last April. McCready also had an older son, Zander, from a previous relationship.

McCready moved to Nashville from Florida when she was 18, handing out copies of her karaoke recordings. She signed to RCA Records within a year. In 1996, USA TODAY gave first album Ten Thousand Angels a three-star review, writing “McCready’s voice is both genuine and pretty.”

As she prepared for her first tour, she told USA TODAY, “I have no stage experience. I’m scared to death. I sing so good in the shower, and then I get out onstage and I’m, like, quivering and fixing to cry.”

In 1997, she became engaged to Dean Cain, star of the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, though the couple broke up in 1998. She also claimed to have had a long-term affair with Major League Baseball pitcher Roger Clemens that began when she was 15.

Over the last decade, McCready made more headlines for her run-ins with the law than for her music, with arrests for buying painkillers with a fake prescription, identity theft, battery and violating probation.

McCready had attempted suicide at least three times. She was hospitalized in July and September 2006 following drug overdoses and then again in December 2008 after she cut her wrists. In 2010, she appeared on the TV reality series Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.

Casey James was born in Plano, Texas on May 31, 1982 to Debra “Bybee James.”

Before American Idol, he played with his band, The Casey James Band, consisting of James, his brother, Billy Cole (bass), and Jacy McCann (drums). They recorded four songs, including the first song that James ever wrote, “Freezing,” back in 2002.

Casey James cites blues guitarist Doyle Bramhall II as a major musical influence and whom he would most like to perform with.  Another major influence is Stevie Ray Vaughan James named Vaughan’s In the Beginning (1992) as a formative album in his early years.

I got an album called “In the Beginning” and I learned every note on it, which was easier to do because it was early on in his career [it was recorded in 1980]. I learned all those notes and it opened me up to the blues. When you look what he was doing, a lot of it was covers, and then you go back and start listening to those guys — the originals Albert King, Freddie King, Albert Collins — those influences changed me, too.

Other influences cited in the article are southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd and Pearl Jam

Congratulations to Faith Hill with her first music video in five year.

“When I first heard this song I was brought to tears,” Faith said about the video called American Heart. “I not only knew I had to record it, but I almost immediately saw it visually. It’s awesome and so appropriate to be able to share it with my fans first, because they’ve been so supportive of me throughout the years.”
