USA TODAY GIVES THE EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES LOOK OF DIERKS' NEW SINGLE, "I HOLD ON!"

Dierks released the driving new single “I Hold On” to country radio today in advance of his upcoming seventh studio album RISER and USA Today premiered the exclusive behind the scenes video from the studio.

Written by Dierks and Brett James, the song deftly pins spiritual questions to material symbols and is delivered with a building vocal intensity that reassures the listener that each lyric is more personal than the last.

"If you asked me to sum myself up in three minutes, I'd play 'I Hold On' for you. At first listen, you might think it's about my truck or my guitar, but it's really about why I do some of the things I do and the kind of guy I am," explains Dierks. "The chorus is really universal…it's about faith, love and freedom…I don't think there's a country fan out there who doesn't live with those as big priorities. I hope through this song I'm able to let the fans into my heart and my mind a little more, and that they can also relate it back to themselves and their own lives." Watch the behind the scenes video below.
