Dierks Bentley has been hinting quite a bit to his upcoming album, The Mountain, and released the project's first single “Woman, Amen" today, January 17.

The song is a special ode to his wife Cassidy Black, but admittedly is not her favorite off the album. “She's been around me too long. I've come back from so many writing appointments over the past 12 years like 'I wrote this song about you' and she's like, 'Just because it's a love song doesn't mean it's about me.' She can see through things," Bentley says, during an interview with Billboard. However, the country singer also adds that for him, the song “really was one of my more personal songs about her and about the way I feel…a song that talks about how I'd be lost without [Cassidy]."
Bentley co-wrote “Woman Amen" with Josh Kear and Ross Copperman in Nashville and Drummer Matt Chamberlain, best known for his work with Pearl Jam and Soundgarden, provides the song's propulsive groove. “We all just sat there in the control room watching him play," Bentley says. “Reid Shippen, our engineer, was like 'This is a bucket list item'."
