Dierks Bentley is featured on the soundtrack for the feature film, The Shack. He contributes a song called “Days of Dark,” which he co-wrote based on the plot and story of the book that was turned into a major motion picture starring Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, Tim McGraw and Radha Mitchell.
Dierks said: [“I couldn’t be more humbled, honored, excited, proud that a song of mine that I was a co-writer on made it into the soundtrack for the movie The Shack. The song’s called ‘Days of Dark.’ It’s a song I wrote with some of the guys back in Nashville and just thinking about The Shack and the plot and the story, and just, the idea of the song is that these days of dark need to be overcome. It has kind of a dark title, but at the end it’s kind of an emotionally uplifting song. I feel like The Shack is the same way. It’s a very powerful book. I think the song fits perfectly for the movie. It’s one of the first movies I ever had a song in. Like I said, I couldn’t be more excited about that. And I’m just looking forward to seeing it.”] SOUNDCUE (:45 OC: . . . to seeing it.)
