Dierks Bentley scores 18th career No 1

Bentley’s “Most Affecting Song” Marks Back-to-Back Chart Toppers

Multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley earns his 18th No. 1 single with “Burning Man” (featuring Brothers Osborne) as the fiery-but-reflective track tops the Mediabase/Country Aircheck singles charts this week. Serving as the second consecutive chart topper from Bentley’s ninth studio album, The Mountain, “his most affecting song” (Rolling Stone) inspired his 2019 Burning Man Tour that will continue with shows this week in Canada, before returning stateside for the kickoff of the U.S. leg on Thursday (Jan 31st) in Spokane, WA.

“I felt an authentic connection to this song the first time I heard and my attachment to it has only strengthened night after night as I watch our fans connect with it,” Bentley states. “It is as much their song as it is mine…we all face that push and pull of who we are as people. As always, I’m very grateful to country radio for continuing to help share this journey.”

Bentley “is always ready to take fans on a wild ride” (Washington Post) with his “rowdy live show” (Rolling Stone) as his 2019 Burning Man Tour “does not disappoint” (Winnipeg Free Press) with special guests Jon Pardi, Tenille Townes and the Hot Country Knights. He will roll through the West Coast ahead of returning to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena in February (Feb 22nd) where he made his sold-out headlining debut in 2016.
