A big congrats to Dierks Bentley on his big milestone! The singer/songwriter gathered with friends and family at new Nashville venue Hemingway’s Bar & Hideaway June 22nd to celebrate his 16th chart-topping single (and 13th as a songwriter) “Black.”
ASCAP’s Mike Sistad kicked off the celebration to honor Bentley and his co-writers Ross Copperman and Ashley Gorley. Produced by Copperman and Arturo Buenahora, “Black” is the third consecutive No. 1 song off Bentley’s latest album with the same name.
“One of the things I’m most proud about this song is that working with Ross, obviously he’s a songwriter and we write a lot together, but the six songs that came before this were ones that none of them had our names on them together. This is the first song we’ve put out that actually we wrote together, and that’s something I think the three of us all take a little bit of pride in, that we’re just trying to find the best songs…whether we wrote them or not,” boasted Bentley.
A big congrats to all involved on a great song and achievement!
