Dierks Bentley Collects 3rd #1 Off BLACK in 1 Year

DIERKS BENTLEY’S HIGHLY PERSONAL SONG
“BLACK” BECOMES THIRD CONSECUTIVE
SINGLE TO HIT NO. ONE EXACTLY ONE YEAR
SINCE THE ALBUM’S RELEASE

BLACK Leads The List of Country Albums This Year
to Produce Three PLATINUM or GOLD Singles

Exactly one year since the release of Dierks Bentley’s eighth studio album BLACK (Capitol Records Nashville), the title-track reaches the top spot on the Mediabase radio chart today. Marking his 16th career No. One, the already GOLD-certified single is the third consecutive No. One off the “most fully-formed LP of his career” (TIME), and further illustrates Bentley’s depth and diversity as an artist as the smash hit follows the chart-topping PLATINUM certified and award winning hits “Somewhere On A Beach” and “Different For Girls.” BLACK serves as one of only two Country albums released since last May that has been certified GOLD while simultaneously spawning three certified songs by the RIAA.

“‘Every single we’ve put out this year has been a really important piece of the story of this album, but ‘Black’ is the one that’s really the cornerstone of the whole project, and it’s about my wife. Watching this one rise to the top of the chart is extra sweet,” said Bentley.

Country radio, music fans and critics alike recognize “Bentley is his own brand” (OC Register), as he continues to balance “robust record sales and heavy radio play with acclaim from even those critics who had seemed allergic to Nashville’s output in the past,” (Esquire) on his 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR.

“Whatever trends come and go, Bentley will always be there as an anchor point for the genre.” – The Plain Dealer

“Bentley has solidified himself as one of Country’s most consistent stars, with No. One songs, platinum albums and high-profile tours.” – Baltimore Sun

“He’s after the out-of-the-box lyrics, the sounds that defy country conventions, ones that simultaneously look back to country’s outlaw past while forging ahead into new terrain.” – Hartford Courant

“At his shows, Dierks Bentley is always ready to take fans on a wild ride.” – Washington Post

“Had the audience singing along at top volume…working the crowd with the charismatic brand of showmanship that’s made him one of Country music’s most exciting entertainers” – Arizona Republic

Bentley’s 2017 WHAT THE HELL WORLD TOUR with special guests Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi heads to the East Coast this weekend (Hartford, CT, 6/02, Mansfield, MA, 6/03, Holmdel, NJ, 6/04). For more information and a full list of tour dates, visit www.dierks.com.

Jason Aldean Earns 1st Country Top 200 Album of 2016

jason-aldean

JASON ALDEAN SCORES THIRD
CONSECUTIVE NO. ONE ALBUM ON
BILLBOARD’S ALL-GENRE TOP 200 CHART
WITH THEY DON’T KNOW

“Reigning Entertainer of the Year Shows Why He Holds the Title” (Newsday) Marking Country’s First Release of 2016 to Summit Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, Pushing Over 138,000 Units

Critics Echo Fan Enthusiasm, Declaring THEY DON’T
KNOW is the “Essence of Aldean” (USA Today)

 Jason Aldean’s “ever-rising stardom” (Billboard) reaches new heights as he earns the No. One position on Billboard’s all-genre Top 200 Album chart today for the third consecutive time with his seventh studio album THEY DON’T KNOW (Broken Bow Records). Three years after being crowned the RIAA’s Top Digital Country Male of all time, Aldean continues to hold the title moving over 138,000 units of the new album in its first week of release.

THEY DON’T KNOW continues to rake in applause from critics who claim “Country’s reigning Entertainer of the Year shows why he holds the title” (Newsday) with the new disc.

“THEY DON’T KNOW finds the Nashville superstar refining what he does best—muscular, guitar-heavy jams and ballads filled with yearning, both delivered with down-home directness. But there’s no question he kicks it up a notch here.” – Hits Daily Double

“The new album certainly hits all the traditional bullet points — from love and heartbreak to wild Saturday nights and hungover Sunday mornings – one of its most powerful ‘Aldean moments’ comes wrapped up in his misunderstood angst.” – Rolling Stone

“The album plays as a somber look back at a failed relationship and a present look at all the drinking that it leads to, some fun and some sad. It has modern accents of mainstream Nashville and shredding guitar solos straight out of 1980s rock.” – MTV

“Packed with stadium-size songs and arena-ready hooks, ‘They Don’t Know’ is a collection of disarmingly affable party anthems that balance Middle American imagery and contemporary relationship concerns.” – The Boston Globe

“THEY DON’T KNOW veers back to the working-class pride that has been central to his place in the country universe.” – Billboard

“It travels through backwoods lyrical allusions to relationships and the wanderlust southern rock, suds-soaked moments and big country parties (the already chart-topping arena anthem ‘Lights Come On.’) It’s a tried-and-true approach, but it continues to be a winning one for a country rocker that really understands his own voice.” – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Classic Aldean: hard-rocking, gritty, more soulful than contemporaries, but no less fun.” – Hartford Courant

The new music follows 17 No. One hits at Country radio. Aldean has “set himself apart from the moment he first blew out of the radio speakers” (Billboard) as each album released has earned PLATINUM or better tallying more than 14 million album sales. His SIX STRING CIRCUS TOUR continues to “live up to his hype and record success” (Kansas City Star) as the “successful summer tour of some of the nation’s largest venues” (USA Today) continues to host sold-out crowds.

Aldean to “Flip The Switch” on Signature Barn, Benefiting Women Rock for the Cure and Susan G. Komen

JASON ALDEAN

Since beginning his career, RIAA’s top digital country male artist of all time Jason Aldean has continued to find new ways to raise awareness for breast cancer research, and for the first time in his career he partners with the Grand Ole Opry and incorporates his 11th annual “Concert for the Cure” as part of the eighth annual “Opry Goes Pink,” the annual special performance staged to fight breast cancer. In addition to the multi-platinum superstar flipping the switch on the Opry’s signature barn backdrop, turning it pink for the Grand Ole Opry’s two shows on Tuesday, October 25, Aldean will take the stage to perform along with other favorites and raise awareness and funds for Women Rock for the Cure™ and Susan G.

“Finding a cure for breast cancer is something I’ll continue to fight for the rest of my life,” said Aldean. “Bringing the show back to Nashville this year as part of a special Opry performance where I will have so many friends and family in the crowd will be a good reminder of why we need to continue to fight this terrible disease.”

This year’s ACM Entertainer of the Year has been an avid supporter towards the fight against breast cancer since 2004, after losing a dear friend to the disease. Aldean continues to donate a portion of each ticket sale towards his longstanding partner, Susan G. Komen, while also honoring one breast cancer survivor and guest during his 2016 SIX STRING CIRCUS, with a VIP backstage meet-and-greet experience.

“Both Jason Aldean and the Opry have been working for several years now to fight breast cancer,” said Pete Fisher, Opry vice president and general manager. “We’re excited that the ACM’s Entertainer of the Year and the Opry are joining forces this year to make what we know will be a bigger impact than ever.”

Aldean will take the stage that night to present a check to the Susan G. Komen Foundation from monies raised on his tour throughout the year. Additionally, beginning today, when fans order tickets to the night’s shows, $5 from every ticket sold will be donated to Women Rock For The Cure™.

Marks Nielsen’s Most Streamed Song on 2016 Mid-Year List
