Dierks Bentley just reached a career milestone…his 20th No. 1 single with “Gone.”
Dierks interrupted his hike to thank fans and country radio. He said, “Another hike, and when I’m out here hiking, I usually get super grateful for all the great things in my life,” he said in the clip while panning the camera to show off the view. “One of the things I’m mostly grateful for now is country radio and another number one song. Thank you so much.”
“Particular to country radio, all my friends at country radio, thank you for another big hit,” he shared. “It just means so much to me to be able to have these songs go out there on the road and sing them, that energy, pack it back and forth between us and the fans.” He concluded, “I can’t wait to get back out there, until then, I’ll be out here, enjoying the great outdoors.”

He added an additional message in his caption, writing, “hard to believe..20 #1s.” “Can’t even begin to wrap my head around that,” he continued. “All I can say is huge THANK YOU to Country Radio. To all my friends in radio, thanks for playing my music all these years,…and everyone back in nashville at Capitol/UMG for all the work that goes into getting the music out there and heard. I’ve been Gone, just like the song says, but I’m ready to get gone out there on the road this summer. Can’t wait to be out there on our Beers On Me tour. Thank you!”
Dierks returns to Virginia Beach Sept. 16th at Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater with Riley Green and Parker McCollum.
