Last week Dierks Bentley and his wife Cassidy announced a very special Christmas present. First child Evalyn Day Bentley, born in 2008, will be joined by a baby brother or sister sometime in December. The couple are reportedly delighted to be sharing the news with family, friends and fans.
To celebrate the news Last.fm Trends thought they’d take a look at Bentley’s back catalog and see what songs might be suitable for the baby-to-be…
Diving straight into Bentley’s album chart, it’s Long Trip Alone that comes out on top of his six studio albums.
Featuring hits like “Free And Easy (Down The Road I Go)“, “Trying To Stop Your Leaving” and the title track “Long Trip Alone“, the record has found 88,761 Last.fm listeners and 463,229 scrobbles so far. With their rogue narrators, charming ex-cons and hope-filled perspectives, the songs might make nice anthems for a child… but maybe Bentley’s characters often stray a little too close to the wild side for a child’s ears.
The same is true of his most-scrobbled track either. Bentley’s debut single “What Was I Thinkin’” has picked up 177,642 scrobbles on Last.fm, and features the singer’s reminiscences of a wild night and a wild beauty from South Alabama.
Not to worry. Bentley’s latest album, Up On The Ridge, features enough acoustic ballads that a few tender lullabies must have slipped through onto the setlist.
Congratulations again to the Bentley’s. Remember, you can get the latest news in scrobbles now at Last.fm Trends.
