Dierks Bentley Casts Real-Life Riser for Music Video

dierks bentley riser

Dierks Bentley has elevated “the most inspiring message of any song he’s ever done” (The Fresno Bee) with the raw music video for his powerful latest single, “Riser.” Premiering exclusively on The Guardian today, the true story follows the struggles of a formerly homeless mother of two named Amy as she rebuilds her life.

“I really wanted this video to reflect the ‘risers’ among us,” said Bentley. “So, when it came to casting, it was important to me that the storyline follow something real – no acting. The first thing I thought when I met Amy was you would have never known that she had been living out of her car with two kids and nowhere to go. Hearing her story is such a solid example that there are people we pass all around us every day who are going through tough times. It’s dedicated to all the ‘Risers.'”

With the help of Nashville non-profit Safe Haven Family Shelter, Amy was able to receive critical education, support and guidance that helped her make a successful return into her own home. Amy shares her story in more depth in this behind-the-scenes footage from the video shoot. To watch, click here: http://bit.ly/1IN2RyN

One of country music’s most-respected and most-unpredictable careers, award-winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley continues to grow, as “his career skyrocketed to greater heights with the release of his seventh album, RISER” (San Jose Mercury News). After spawning three consecutive No. one hits with “I Hold On,” “Drunk On A Plane” and “Say You Do,” he follows with the “Riser” as the record’s latest release. Bentley’s six previous studio albums have sold more than five million copies, notched 13 chart-topping singles, earned 12 GRAMMY nominations, countless CMA, ACM and CMT nominations and membership at the Grand Ole Opry. Bentley is currently on the road selling out arenas and amphitheaters with his 2015 SOUND OF SUMMER TOUR, and recently sold-out his 10th Annual Miles & Music.
