Country singer Dierks Bentley recorded his ninth album, “The Mountain,” in a studio outside of Telluride.

The latest album, The Mountain, from country singer Dierks Bentley has a lot of Colorado on it. Performing at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival inspired the Nashville-based country star in many ways. It even moved him to launch a Labor Day music festival which returns for its second year this weekend in Buena Vista.

Colorado Matters spoke to Bentley last year ahead of the festival's debut.
