Dierks Bentley’s Living is #1 on the Billboard American and Canadian Country Airplay chart followed by American Country Countdown.
Living is Dierks 17th Billboard Country Airplay and 19th career #1 song.
Bentley co-wrote Living with Ashley Gorley, Jon Nite and Ross Copperman.
Living is the 3rd consecutive #1 from Dierks 9th LP The Mountain.
The Mountain was produced by Ross Copperman and Jon Randall. It dropped in June 2018 and gave Dierks his 7th #1 on the Top Country Albums chart.
“Living has always been the core of The Mountain to me. It started as this joke between the band and me about how little living we were actually doing during the daytime hours before our shows. It grew into a perspective shift that completely shaped how I choose to live life. It’s been an incredible year full of special moments on and off the stage, and I believe this song has helped me have more presence and gratitude for all of them.”
“The dream is to write and record songs that are authentically personal to me, but also have commercial success; I want both. Usually, you wind up with a little bit of one and a little bit of the other. But with Living, I got it both ways. I got to write something that has deep meaning for me, a song with the importance of gratitude at its core. And, I get to go out there on stage and pound my chest and sing it at the top of my lungs along with all our fans, who know it by heart thanks to country radio. That is the dream, and it came true with this one.”
The official video for Living stars Dierks Bentley and his 5 year old son Knox having a fun day out together. The video was directed by Wes Edwards, he’s shot 14 other music videos for Dierks.
It’s 11 weeks #1 for Blanco Brown’s The Git Up on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
Blanco Brown announced Oct 11 will be the release date for his debut LP Honeysuckle & Lightning Bugs.
The album was inspired by Blanco’s experiences of growing up in Atlanta and rural Georgia. His two biggest musical influences were Johnny Cash and Outkast. Brown calls his brand of music TrailerTrap.
“This song, I feel like can change your moment and that’s what music does. It has the power of changing your moment even for three minutes and thirty seconds. It’s what you do after that that determines your moment and your mood for the rest of the day. But hopefully, if you get in a good mood stay in that mood, git up!”
