Dierks Bentley’s ‘Black’ Turns to Gold
Dierks Bentley has made another notch in his belt of career achievements. The country superstar's latest album, Black, has been certified gold by the RIAA.
Bentley was presented with a plaque commemorating the gold album by his label, Universal Music Group, during the first stop of the new leg of his 2017 What the Hell Tour in Columbia, Md. The country star's chart-topping album is one of the only two albums released since May of 2016 to receive gold certification or higher. In addition to the album as a whole achieving this success, all three of its singles have seen equal or higher certification.
The star scored two platinum hits with “Somewhere on a Beach” and the Elle King duet “Different for Girls," which gave Bentley his third CMA Award win for Musical Event of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards and 2017 Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance, while "Black," the album's current single," has also been certified gold.
2017 is shaping up to be a big year for Bentley. In addition to his album and touring success, the superstar hosted the ACM Awards with Luke Bryan for the second year in a row. Now, Bentley is on his What the Hello Tour, which he extended into the summer due to popular demand. The additional leg features roughly 30 dates that takes the singer and his opening acts Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi across the U.S. through September.
