Congratulations to Dierks Bentley and the team at EMI / Capitol Records Nashville! He’s earned his tenth number one single of his career with “5-1-5-0″ topping the country music charts this weekend. It’s the third consecutive number one song from his “Home” album, making him 3 for 3 so far. It’s his tenth number one as a songwriter and artist, and tops both the Billboard and Mediabase country charts.
“I have to admit, it’s been a 5150 kinda summer,” said Bentley. “The tailgating before shows has been turned up a notch, and the fans are ready to get crazy. You can’t ever take for granted the power of a fun, uptempo song that isn’t meant for anything other than kicking off a party. I’ll also never take for granted having 10 No. one hits on country radio…those guys and the fans have given me an unbelievable career so far.”
In case you just can’t get enough Dierks, catch him tonight on the E!’s brand new reality show “Opening Act” at 10 pm EST. Dierks surprises 16 year-old Oklahoma country singer Kylie Morgan and mentors her at the Grand Ole Opry to prepare her to open for superstar Jason Aldean.
