WATCH: Dierks Bentley's "Home" Celebrating the Land Where We Belong

"Home" is a powerful and moving song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Dierks Bentley. Released in October 2011 as the second single from his 2012 album of the same name, this song quickly resonated with audiences, reaching number one on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in March 2012. Co-written with Dan Wilson and Brett Beavers, "Home" was also selected by the Arizona Centennial Commission as the official song for the state's 100-year celebration.

The inspiration for "Home" stemmed from the tragic Tucson, Arizona shooting in January 2011, which claimed six lives and critically injured U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords. In an interview with The Desert Sun, Bentley shared that he, Wilson, and Beavers were grappling with the tragedy and sought to channel their emotions into the song. Bentley remarked, "The song's about a sense of being and memories of the country. Everybody's idea of America is a little different."

"Home" made a notable debut at number 53 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart in October 2011. It also appeared on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number 70 in November 2011, and on the Canadian Hot 100 chart, debuting at number 62 in February 2012.

Dierks Bentley's "Home" stands as a testament to the resilience and spirit of America, capturing the essence of the nation's beauty and strength. It's a song that not only resonates with listeners but also pays tribute to the enduring sense of belonging and pride that defines the American experience.
