DIERKS BENTLEY’S GRATITUDE-FILLED “LIVING” PEAKS AT COUNTRY RADIO IN THE U.S. AND CANADA TODAY MARKING THREE CONSECUTIVE NO. ONES OFF THE MOUNTAIN
The “Heart of THE MOUNTAIN” (Rolling Stone) Earns Bentley His 19th Career Chart-Topper
NASHVILLE, TN – Feb. 19, 2019 – Current three-time CMA nominee Dierks Bentley takes “Living” to the top of the Mediabase/Country Aircheck Singles chart, Billboard’s Country Airplay chart and the Canadian Country Airplay Chart this week, notching 19 career No. Ones. The third consecutive chart-topper from Bentley’s ninth studio album THE MOUNTAIN, “Living” radiates with a universal message and poignant lyrics reflective of Bentley’s own personal journey to appreciate even the little things.
“‘Living’ has always been the core of THE MOUNTAIN to me,” said Bentley. “It started as this joke between the band and me about how little ‘living’ we were actually doing during the daytime hours before our shows. It grew into a perspective shift that completely shaped how I choose to live life. It’s been an incredible year full of special moments on and off the stage, and I believe this song has helped me have more presence and gratitude for all of them.”
“Living” follows the back-to-back No. Ones “Burning Man” and “Woman, Amen” off THE MOUNTAIN, and continues to resonates with fans and critics for its contagious and “be-in-the-moment energy” (Entertainment Weekly).
“The lyrics serve as reminder that there are days when views such as these are so commonplace in our lives that we see everything but them, while at other times we bask in their unparalleled intensity, from expansive landscapes to the tiniest detail on a flower petal.” – Rolling Stone
“‘Living’ in the moment is at the heart of Dierks Bentley’s THE MOUNTAIN.” – Billboard
“Offers up the album’s most easily likable vocal melody and some electric guitar crunch.” – Paste
Pegged as “one of Country music’s most enviable brands, equal parts affability and authenticity” (Forbes), Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion overall digital streams.
