Dierks Bently Releases His Take On ‘American Girl’


Dierks Bentley released his take on the Tom Petty classic, “American Girl” Friday (February 23rd).

The bluegrass-tinged track is from the forthcoming tribute album, Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration.

Bentley shared in a release, “Petty's southern roots shined through across his songwriting and storytelling. He might not have ever been considered as country, but you can't go into a bar in Nashville without hearing this song. It is one of the greatest songs in a life's work of great American songs.”

The full album, due to drop on March 31st, will also feature Dolly Parton, George Strait, Chris Stapleton and Luke Combs, among others.
