We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…
Last year, Dierks Bentley had a hit with the song “Burning Man” from his album The Mountain. The song featured Brothers Osborne, and it was co-written by Bobby Pinson and Luke Dick.
Well, they describe the day they wrote the song as a tedious one because they’d spent hours working on a song that went nowhere. Bobby got up to run an errand, but before he could leave, Luke decided to switch gears and pull out another idea he had been working on. Bobby turned right back around, and they wrote the first verse and chorus together. But, Bobby still had to run that errand, so he left so that he could take care of his cows.
By the time he got to the gas station, he had the second verse. And, by the time he’d finished up checking on his cows, Luke called him to say that he had the bridge. The song came together in an hour.
Dierks Bentley immediately connected to it, and he knew that Brothers Osborne would feel the same. It was the second hit off his album, and it’s this week’s The Song Remembers When… here’s “Burning Man.”
