Making its Top 30 debut on the charts, more than 75 stations instantly welcomed “the clever mid-tempo track” (Billboard).

As “the rock-infused ‘Gone’ is guaranteed to be a radio hit” (Whiskey Riff), the new single finds Bentley “stretching himself creatively and try something new for his next musical chapter,” (Sounds Like Nashville) which has won him both critical acclaim and commercial viability over the last nine albums and 19 No. One hits.
“Fits squarely in Bentley’s wheelhouse, allowing his raspy voice to sink into self-pity as he bemoans his heartbreaking trips down memory lane without ever leaving his living room.” – Billboard
“The song mixes upbeat production and a sing-along chorus with the same type of forlorn heartbreak he detailed in ‘Drunk on a Plane.'” – Rolling Stone
“The song finds Bentley in a sweet spot between his roots as a bluegrass fan, his past radio hits and the new sounds he gravitates toward as a Country music listener.” – Taste of Country
Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion streams. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on his last album THE MOUNTAIN, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping release. Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACMs, CMAs, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY nominations.
