"I'll Be the Moon"

With help from duet partner Maren Morris, Bentley turns this Black ballad into a back-and-forth between two cheating lovers who meet up after dark, once the girl's unsuspecting boyfriend has fallen asleep. Bentley plays the villain — the guy who willingly sleeps with someone else's partner — but you still feel a pang of sympathy once the chorus hits. "You can leave me in the dark, if that's all I get from you," he sings, knowing he'll never be the biggest star in her sky.
