Well, well. It looks like congratulations are in store for Dierks Bentley. According to the Billboard Country Albums chart this week, the “I Hold On” singer can celebrate a No. 1 album as his album Riser sits atop all the others making this his fifth career debut in the top spot on the country charts! And don’t forget #CMchat is giving away an autographed copy of it courtesy of Dierks Label UMG Nashville.
His album has been receiving great reviews from everyone including us here at CmchatLIVE.com.
“On his latest, Riser, Dierks Bentley again elevates himself above the rest of the country pack.” – People
“The chiming guitars and slow-boiling melodies add a simmering passion to Bentley’s distinctive vocal and writing style…the singer/songwriter continues to bring a much needed heft to country music.” – Associated Press
“Dierks Bentley is here to save country music.” – Washington Times
“…revitalizes country music on his greatest album yet.” – Country Weekly
“Dierks Bentley has built impressive success– 10 number one songs– on bedrock concepts that feel more quaint all the time: musicianship, emotional integrity, and hard work. Those elements again make themselves known on his stirring seventh album ‘Riser.’” – Boston Globe
“Bentley bares his soul in meditations on love and loss, death and rebirth.” – USA Today
This whole album is not Nashville conveyor belt country, and nor is it just chasing hit singles. It is a bunch of the most personal and emotion-filled songs of Dierks’ career to date.” – Maverick

Dierks’ next big thing will be his CMT Crossroads performance where he teams up with OneRepublic which will air on March 21 at 9:00PM CT on CMT.
