Dierks Bentley – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Dierks Bentley appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (Nov. 17) for the live television debut of his new single, “Gone.”

The superstar performed the song alongside his longtime touring band from what appeared to be a sound stage.

The live debut of the song comes just days after “Gone” officially went for adds at country radio with over 75 stations adding the track. The clever heartbreak track made its debut in the Top 30 and continues to make its way up the charts.


“Country music is the best genre for storytelling, and I feel like we are realizing it probably now more than ever since we can’t congregate together at concerts, high five each other, sing and shout at the top of our lungs. A good country show is just about the greatest communion there is out there,” Bentley previously shared. “We are all relying on lyrics and melodies at home and trying however we can to find different ways to connect with our fans, so that they know how important they still are to us. I hope this song resonates with mine, and I’m counting the days until we can all be back together again, beers in the air.”

“Gone” was co-written by Nicolle Galyon, Niko Moon and Ben Johnson and is the lead single from Bentley’s forthcoming album.
