Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley sails to the top of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart this week with “Somewhere On A Beach.”  The momentum builds as Bentley preps to release his eighth studio album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville) on May 27. The steamy single earns the top position while continuing to notch its way up the Top 5 on the Billboard Country Airplay, Mediabase and Country Digital Songs charts.

On the heels of a career album earning critical acclaim, commercial success and an armful of Grammy, CMA and ACM nominations, Bentley continues one of the most interesting journeys in country music with the new “ambitious material” (USA Today) found on BLACK.

"The collection, so far, is unlike anything fans have heard from Bentley, which is what he wanted. The singer has made a career out of sharp left turns, and he does so again here.” - Entertainment Weekly

“Love, something he explores through all its twists, turns and turmoil…intoxicating…sexy…provocative.” - Rolling Stone

“Dierks Bentley is wading into emotionally complex territory...” - Billboard
