DIERKS BENTLEY HITS “GOLD” AT COUNTRY RADIO WITH MOST ADDED SONG THIS WEEK.

Dierks Bentley has the most added song at Country Radio today, with more than 80 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 Dierks’ 10th 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

“Bentley always releases music that is authentic to him, and ‘Gold’ is no exception…it’s refreshing to hear that someone of Bentley’s stature sings about finding the deeper meaning to life.” – The Nash News

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.

Dierks Bentley (CMA Fest 2022) OC: …host it. :22
“It was so great to be back (in person) at CMA Fest especially hosting it. After two years of CMA being away, CMA Fest being gone, those fans came back with a vengeance, so excited to party and hang out, so loud. So, for me to get a chance to not only play the show, but actually host it with my buddy Elle King, that is just, I just feel so lucky. That was so much fun and so looking forward to seeing the show air on ABC in August, and just so truly lucky to have a chance to host it.”

Luke Bryan (CMA Fest 2022) OC: …experience. :56
“It was crazy. To leave the stadium and over 80,000 people and go straight to Blake’s bar for the Spotify event. And I got a little carried away. I never get to play rowdy bars anymore, so after I kinda got to roast Blake, I attempted to sing ‘Some Beach,’ and I did not know any of the words-sorry, Blake. Anyway, just being in his bar, I got in front of the crowd and I really kind of got caught up in the moment and played for maybe a little too long. But then, after I got done there, I ran across the street to my bar. I bought my whole bar a Two Lane (beer) and it was just a wild night and so good being in the mix in CMA Music Fest with all the fans doing a concert, bar hopping to Blake’s bar (and) my bar. It was a pretty crazy experience.”

“Everybody is super-excited to be back at CMA Fest. It’s a staple in country music. It’s been going on for so many decades. I just feel like not having a proper CMA Fest was just kind of gut-wrenching. But people are excited-the fans are excited, the performers are excited, I’m excited, so it’s gonna be a good time.”

DIERKS BENTLEY’S GRATEFUL “GOLD” SETS THE STAGE FOR HIS 10TH ALBUM.

Multi-Platinum Country music star Dierks Bentley today releases “Gold,” a single about gratitude, presence and the treasures to be found in the moment that you are in. The bright and banging record sets the stage for Bentley’s tenth LP, arriving early next year after an especially careful production process, one helmed by the artist himself for the first time. To listen, click here.

“2020 was a chance for me to give my guitar and the road a little rest. It gave me the chance to spend a lot more time adventuring outdoors with family and friends, but also alone. It also gave me time to reset and rekindle my love of Country music and a lot of the types of songs and sounds that I fell in love with when I first got to Nashville,” explains Bentley. “I think you’ll hear that in this first track, but it carries across the whole album.”

 

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. Working with trusted collaborators Ross Copperman, Reid Shippen and Jon Randall Stewart, he led an effort that mashes up several Nashville golden ages as well as homage to the Grand Ole Opry’s century of influence.

Dierks Bentley (Gold) OC: …for granted. :30
“This song to me is all about gratitude and just being present in the moment that you’re in and recognizing that the moment that you’re in is pretty awesome. The song starts off talking aout how you finally get that greener grass and find out you’re still in the weeds. That reminds me a lot of working your way up in the country music business, reminds me a lot of being a parent. You’ve got to be present where you’re are and when you are present, you recognize it’s a good moment to be in sometimes, and sometimes you forget and take it for granted.”
