Bentley recently revealed to Taste of Country the meaning behind 5-1-5-0, “I had written this song on the beach one day and I said, ‘Let’s get 5150.'” Rock fans know it as a Van Halen album and song from 1986, but the ‘Free and Easy’ singer explains that it’s also the police code for a criminally insane person.
