NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Coun­try star Dierks Bent­ley hopes that his new sin­gle re­minds peo­ple that he’s not al­ways singing about be­ing drunk on a plane or be­ing a beach bum look­ing for a rebound.

Bent­ley’s new song, “Woman, Amen” is a rous­ing, drum-driven cel­e­bra­tion of the kind of women that aren’t typ­i­cally pro­filed in coun­try songs.

He’s us­ing the song to high­light ex­cep­tional women who de­serve recog­ni­tion dur­ing a per­for­mance on the Academy of Coun­try Mu­sic Awards in Las Ve­gas on April 15, which will air on CBS.

Bent­ley said the very per­sonal song is about his wife and he wants fans to sub­mit pic­tures and sto­ries on so­cial me­dia about im­por­tant women in their lives.
