Riff: Dierks Bentley – “Tip It On Back”

Jan 9, 2013

So grab the girl you came with/And set her world on fire/And watch her sway and sing to the music/Until it’s all alright

from Tip It On Back lyrics by Dierks Bentley

Safe country music is an epidemic, and Bentley is just adding to the problem – just another cog in the pop country music machine. He lacks edge, tenacity and passion. What he represents is the “good ole boy” mentality, which is in contrast to what country music needs right now.
