Dierks Bentley riffs somewhere in Mississippi in Esquire’s songwriting contest

The April issue of Esquire magazine invites Capitol Nashville artist Dierks Bentley (along with four others: Charlie Mars, Bob Schneider, Griffin House and Ben Kweller) to write, perform and record an original song.  The catch:  the song had to contain the phrase, “Somewhere in Mississippi.”  To put the musicians in the mood, Esquire invited them all to Clarksdale, Mississippi, and take part in a two-day photo shoot with world-famous photographer Danny Clinch.

The resulting five songs are available for download beginning today

Here’s a behind-the-scenes video of Dierks’ take and the songwriting challenge:
