|Singles from Feel That Fire|
Feel That Fire is the fourth studio album by American country music singer Dierks Bentley. It was released on February 3, 2009 on Capitol Records Nashville. The album's first two singles were the title track and "Sideways", both of which reached Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. A third single, "I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes", was released in July 2009. The album has sold 327,000 copies as of 2010.
As with all of his previous recordings for Capitol Records, Bentley co-produced the album with Brett Beavers. Bentley co-wrote most of the album's songs along with both Brett and Jim Beavers, the latter of whom is Brett's brother. "I Can't Forget Her", one of only two songs on this album which Bentley did not co-write, was previously recorded by Clay Walker on his 2003 album A Few Questions.
The title track, which Bentley and Brett Beavers co-wrote with The Warren Brothers (Brad and Brett Warren), was also the first release from the album. This song became Bentley's sixth Number One hit on the Billboard country charts in early 2009. Following it was "Sideways", a Jim Beavers co-write which became Bentley's seventh Number One hit in July 2009.
The album has received many positive reviews and put in many "Best Country Albums of 2009". The Chicago Tribune named it No. 1 on their list of the best country albums of the year.
The song "Beautiful World" was nominated for Best Country Collaboration w/ Vocals at the 52nd Grammy Awards.
