NASHVILLE, TN - July 14, 2009 - Award-winning singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley gets intimate with the release of the Conway-esque ballad "I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes." The track shipped to country radio this week and goes for official adds on July 27.
Bentley says the romantic song "can't be more intimate, more one-on-one, man-to- woman if you tried." He adds, "One of the best compliments I can get is when a guy comes up to me and says that one of my songs helped him out at home...maybe helped him smooth something over with his girlfriend or wife. That's the goal with this one."
The Boston Globe chose this track as the album's ESSENTIAL calling the it "boldly intimate" and "as sexy and romantic a song about commitment and a sense of home as you'll hear this year." The New York Times followed calling the ballad "a slow smolderer in the vein of his 2005 hit 'Come A Little Closer.'"
