DIERKS BENTLEY HITS “GOLD” AT COUNTRY RADIO WITH MOST ADDED SONG THIS WEEK
Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley has the most added song at Country Radio today, with more than 79 stations on-board at add date for “Gold.” Focusing on gratitude, presence and the treasures to be found in the moment that you are in, “Gold” sets the tone for Bentley’s tenth LP, arriving early next year. The song has already become a standout during his current BEERS ON ME TOUR and is available here.
Bentley’s new single showcases why he "is indeed one of Country music's biggest stars” (TODAY). While he’s long been a Music Row standout for devotion to his roots in classic Country and bluegrass, Bentley has never been so free to infuse his passions into music destined for the competitive commercial Country arena. As part of TODAY’s Hitmaker Series, watch Bentley share the deeper meaning of the track and his chart-topping career here.
“Dierks Bentley returns with a jam session vibe on his latest release, and his raspy vocal gives grit to these lyrics that find the sunshine even amid life’s darkest storms.” - Billboard
“Cranks up the energy in a way that’s calibrated to get beers raised at summer concerts." - Rolling Stone
“Incorporates familiar Country electric guitar tones with driving riffs, acoustic guitars and a happy, infectious melody for a track that feels like a relatable and readymade hit for Country music audiences." - CMT
“A life anthem that perfectly melds heart-on-sleeve lyrical candor with an infectiously jaunty melody." - Taste of Country

That 10th album landmark speaks to how time has flown in Bentley’s unique, 21st-century career. He landed his first publishing deal in 2001 and released his debut album in 2003, producing an instant No. One single. The years since have revealed a rare consistency that’s fueled longevity – eight more albums that reached the top of the Country sales charts, resulting in 21 No. One songs, 6.4 billion streams, three CMA Awards, 14 GRAMMY® nominations and membership into the Grand Ole Opry. Trendy sounds have ebbed and flowed around him over these two decades, but fans have relied on Bentley for something more nourishing and individual. The new single “Gold” promises a landmark album that will build on that enviable legacy. Fans can currently find Bentley out on his BEERS ON ME TOUR leading into his SEVEN PEAKS MUSIC FESTIVAL over Labor Day Weekend (Sept 2-4) in Villa Grove, CO. He also has created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem lifestyle collection Desert Son, along with his “Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row” franchise hosting four locations.
