    I Hold On

    From his new album Riser, "I Hold On" is a song about clinging to the things that truly matter in life. Sure we live in a society of disposable products, but sometimes the things we have mean something because they are connected to the stories of our life.

    Sometimes life is hard, but even in the most dire of circumstances we can find some release in the simple things. That's what "Tip It On Back," from Dierks' album Home, is all about.

    Up On The Ridge

    I first heard Dierks perform this song when I saw him in concert in Bossier City. This song has a hard driving rhythm that is fused with a fantastic bluegrass sound that works. I think you'll love this one as much as I do!

    Home

    "Home" celebrates America and the sacrifices of the men and women who have served in heroic roles, serving and protecting the country they love. I like the message of this tune, but I really love the way Dierks captures the majesty and vastness of the United States in this beautiful anthem.

    I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes

    This is one of Dierks' older songs, but it is also one of his most romantic. The ballad is simple and honest and sure to make women swoon. If you've ever been in love, or ever wanted to be, you'll relate to this piece because this song defines "longing."
