This only reached #40 on the Country chart, and its commercial failure helped change the course of Riser
. "It was too heavy. It was a little dark," said Bentley at a Q&A following the screening of his Dierks Bentley: Riser
documentary. "We knew we were taking the chance, and it didn't work."
The album launch was pushed back from the fall of 2013 to February 2014. Bentley said, "That ended up being a great thing. I ended up being able to inject that summertime, who I really am. I love to have a good time. The record was missing that. So much of that got injected into the record with songs 'Drunk on a Plane
,' 'Sounds of Summer,' 'Pretty Girls.'"
