Take A Listen To Dierks Bentley’s Cover of Tom Petty’s “American Girl”

Multi-award-winning Country star and world-class musician Dierks Bentley today released his take on the Tom Petty classic, “American Girl.” The free-spirited, bluegrass-tinged track officially impacts country radio today (via Big Machine Record/The Valory Music Co.), and is from the forthcoming Tom Petty tribute album, Petty Country: A Country Music Celebration of Tom Petty to be released by Big Machine Records in partnership with the Tom Petty Estate. The album brings together the top Country and Americana artists to create a tribute to Petty’s musical legacy.

Of the song, Bentley shared in a press release, “Petty’s southern roots shine through across his songwriting and storytelling. He may not have ever been considered as Country, but you can’t go into a bar in Nashville without hearing this song. It is one of the greatest songs in a life’s work of great American songs,” says Bentley. “The spirit of this woman, the idea of such relentless hope – and disappointment – ignites such a spark. Jon Randall and I were driven to make that feeling of American roots stand tall.”
