Dierks Bentley’s ‘Black’ Singles Earn RIAA Certification
Dierks Bentley's Black album singles have been RIAA certified gold and platinum.
The album's first two hits, "Somewhere on a Beach" and "Different for Girls" featuring Elle King, not only hit No. 1 on the country charts, but are also officially certified platinum. The title track of the album — which also serves as the third single — has achieved gold status. "Black" is currently in the top 10 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.
Black itself was a big success, topping Billboard's Top Country Albums chart after its release in 2016, as well as debuting at No. 2 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart. Bentley's collaboration with King on "Different for Girls" earned the paid a win for Musical Event of the Year at the 2016 CMA Awards, as well as a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance in 2017.
Bentley is currently on his 2017 What the Hell Tour that will keep him on the road for the summer, criss-crossing the U.S. with stops in Birmingham, Ala., Hartford, Conn., Charlotte, N.C. and other major markets. Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi join Bentley as supporting acts for the duration of the tour.
“There’s not a cooler feeling in the world than the love that country music fans pour out every night when you’re laying it all out on the stage," Bentley says. "They are having the time of their lives, and we’re all just getting lost in it together."
