Dierks Bentley now has 20 number one songs under his belt: his latest single, “Gone” hit the top of the charts this week.
Dierks said, “I really can’t believe I have 20 number ones at Country radio. I still remember the bar I played in Texas when I found out that ‘What Was I Thinking’ was going to be my first number one. It’s a great feeling that only gets better with each song that goes to the top.”
He added, “I am so appreciative of Country radio for all the support they have given me from the beginning…it’s been a great ride.”
Bentley also took to Instagram with a video of him hiking in Colorado. He posted, “Hard to believe..20 #1s. Can’t even begin to wrap my head around that. All I can say is a huge THANK YOU to Country Radio. To all my friends in radio, thanks for playing my music all these years,…and everyone back in Nashville at Capitol/UMG for all the work that goes into getting the music out there and heard.
I’ve been Gone, just like the song says, but I’m ready to get gone out there on the road this summer. Can’t wait to be out there on our Beers On Me tour. Thank you!”
