Dierks Bentley goes platinum with ‘Living’

Track becomes third single from The Mountain to be certified by RIAA

Dierks Bentley adds to his growing list of RIAA certifications as his 19th No. 1 hit “Living” has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Known as “the heart of” (Billboard) his most recent album The Mountain (Capitol Records Nashville), it follows the commercial and radio success of both “Burning Man” (feat. Brothers Osborne) and “Woman, Amen.”

The song hit No. 1 in September 2019, marking 19 career No. 1 singles. “Living” radiates with a universal message and poignant lyrics reflective of Bentley’s own personal journey to appreciate even the little things.

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 The Mountain, which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping album. Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACMs, CMAs, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY  nominations. The multi-Platinum singer/songwriter continues to be “one of country music’s most adventurous artists” (Billboard) and just recently celebrated his 15 year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.

He has created professional endeavors outside of the music with his Flag & Anthem partnership creating the exclusive lifestyle collection, Desert Son, along with his Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row franchise hosting four locations across the country.
