Am I The Only One

Album: Home (2011)
Charted: 39
  • Dierks Bentley is not one for spending the evenings at home slumped in front of his TV. The Country musician's first single from his sixth studio album is a fist-pumping party song about his friends having grown up without him and preferring to stay at home, whilst he still wants to go out for the night. "Am I the only one who wants to have fun tonight/Is there anybody out there wants to have a cold beer and kick it to the morning light?," he sings. Bentley explained to The Press of Atlantic City, "it's a song about trying to drag your buddies out to have a good time."
  • The song is based on actual incident involving stay-at-home buddies. "I wrote this song with some friends, about some friends of mine who I couldn't get to go out on the town on a Friday night," Bentley recalled. "They were giving me some pretty weak excuses, so I had to make fun of them in the lyrics of this song. No one was actually watching American Idol. If one of my friends turned me down for American Idol on a Friday night, we'd definitely have to exchange some words. Nothing wrong with American Idol, but you can TiVo that show and watch it whenever you want. When it's Friday night, it's time to go out and have a good time."
