DIERKS BENTLEY CRASHES COUNTRY RADIO CHARTS WITH 14TH CAREER NO. ONE “SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH”
Ahead of BLACK’s Release, Bentley’s Fastest Rising Single Simultaneously Earns GOLD RIAA Certification
NASHVILLE, TN – May 9, 2016 – Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has stormed the charts with “Somewhere On A Beach,” the lead single from his forthcoming studio album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville), out May 27. It cruises to the No. One spot on both the Billboard Country Airplay and Mediabase radio charts this week and shows no signs of slowing down. The infectious track has also earned GOLD status by the RIAA ahead of the album’s release and spends its second week atop the Canadian radio charts. The fastest rising single of Bentley’s career, “Somewhere On A Beach” continues to resonate with fans for the fourth week on the all-encompassing Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
“‘Somewhere On A Beach’ is setting up our summer just like we wanted and putting fans in the mood to party out on the tour,” shares Bentley. “It’s hard to believe your 14th No. one hit could be your fastest rising. I’m blown away at the reception of the new music, and I can’t wait to start peeling back more layers of the album with the other songs.”
Bentley continues to exceed expectations with the “autobiographical” (The Tennessean) and “ambitious material” (USA Today) found on BLACK, as he explores breakups, hookups, mess-ups and everything in between. Next, Bentley embarks on the the 40-city 2016 SOMEWHERE ON A BEACH TOUR with Randy Houser, Cam and Tucker Beathard on Thursday (5/12) in Holmdel, NJ.
