DIERKS BENTLEY ASCENDS BEYOND THE
PACK TO EARN TWO PLATINUM CERTIFIED
NO. ONE HITS IN 2014
"I Hold On" And "Drunk On A Plane" Also Honored By
The NSAI For "Songs I Wish I Had Written" This Year
TN – Dec. 3, 2014 – Momentum for singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley
continues to build as he becomes one of only three country artists to
earn two RIAA certified PLATINUM and No. one radio singles in 2014. "I
Hold On" was certified PLATINUM this week and now joins "Drunk On A
Plane" to give Bentley two of the year's biggest back-to-back hits. He
joins Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line as one of only three artists
to accomplish this in 2014.
Dierks played us the ‘RISER’ album for the first time, we knew it was
something special,” commented Cindy Mabe, President, Universal Music
Group Nashville. “But having two back-to-back #1 Platinum hits within a
year shows the real power of how Dierks’ music has resonated and how
he’s connected with the fans."
addition to his success on the sales and radio charts, Bentley was also
recently honored as a songwriter for both tracks by the NSAI as two of
this year’s 10 Songs I Wish I’d Written, an honor voted on by other songwriters.
latest single “Say You Do” is now available at Country Radio as he
wraps the second leg of his 2014 RISER TOUR this weekend in Canada amid
sold out crowds.
