Dierks Bentley wowed the crowd at the 2015 ACM Awards with a soulful rendition of "Riser."

The heartfelt song celebrates the resilience of the human spirit with these touching lyrics: "I'm a riser / I'm a get off of the ground, don't run and hider / Pushin' comes to shove / Hey I'm a fighter / When darkness comes to town, I'm a lighter / A get out aliver, of the fire / Survivor."

Audience members swayed back and forth in line with the music as Bentley sang on an actual riser, appropriately.

During an interview with Taste of Country recently, Bentley shared that he hopes "Riser" will be his new single, but he 100 percent decided on it yet. He is currently working on music for his new album. He has finished nine songs already, and is working on more.

Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo introduced Bentley after entertaining the crowd by throwing a successful football touchdown pass to Luke Bryan.
