Dierks Bentley’s ‘Black’ Hits No. 1

This week, Dierks Bentley’s latest album Black landed him the No. 1 spot on both Billboard’s Top Albums chart and Top Country Albums charts. With over 101,000 units sold, this officially marks the best-selling first week of his career.

Dierks has been basking in the success of the album since the first single off of his eighth studio album, “Somewhere On a Beach,” also went to No. 1.

To celebrate the album’s success, Bentley launched a limited time pop-up shop in Nashville that will run through the conclusion of the CMA Music Festival on June 12. The store is located on 4th and Broadway, right in downtown Nashville.

At the pop-up shop, fans can hear songs from the album at the Black listening station as well as purchase the album. They can also purchase merchandise exclusively available at the store and enter for a chance to win either autographed items or tickets to see Bentley live on tour.

“It’s pretty cool to have a pop-up shop dedicated to this album,” Bentley says in a recent press release. “It’s also the future home of my bar Whiskey Row, so it’s great to be able to use the space and give the fans a place to chill during Music Fest before we start construction in there.”

While waiting for Whiskey Row to break ground fans can pass the time by listening to Bentley’s next release “It’s Different For Girls.” The second single off Black features Elle King, and although it’s quite a different sound than what we’re used to from the country crooner, it certainly doesn’t disappoint.
