"Trying to Stop Your Leaving"
"Feel That Fire"

"Feel That Fire" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Dierks Bentley. Bentley co-wrote the song along with Brad and Brett Warren (of The Warren Brothers) and his producer Brett Beavers. It was released in September 2008 as the lead-off single and title track from his album Feel That Fire, which was released on February 3, 2009. The song became Bentley's sixth Number One on the Hot Country Songs chart for the chart week of February 21, 2009.


"Feel That Fire" is an up-tempo mostly accompanied by electric guitar and banjo. It describes the narrator's lover, and lists off all the things that she wants, such as riding a bull at the county fair, or making every stray animal a pet. In the chorus, the narrator explains that she "needs to feel that fire" and be his lover. The song is in the key of A-flat major with the guitars set to E-flat tuning and a main chord pattern of A-D-G-A. Bentley's vocals range from G3 to E5.[1]


Alison Bonaguro, in an entry for the CMT blog, described the song favorably. In her review, she said, "In a world of passionless relationships, I think this song is very aspirational."[2]

The song received a "thumbs down" review from the country music site The 9513. Despite calling it an "uptempo number that finds Bentley singing about something other than life on the road, featuring a rockin’ intro", critic Brady Vercher said that the song "contains a weak narrative that settles for what's easiest by barely delving into the subject."[3]


To promote the single, Bentley shipped more than 2000 boxes of Cracker Jack to various radio stations (a reference to "she wants the toy in the Cracker Jack", a line from the opening). Fifty-one stations were chosen randomly as winners, with the grand prize being a concert with Bentley.[4]

The music video featured actress and model Sarah Desage.
