And just like that, Dierks Bentley’s single “Burning Man” has blazed up the country radio charts to earn the singer his 18th No.1 hit. Topping the Mediabase/Country Aircheck singles charts this week, the sizzling single marks Bentley’s second consecutive chart-topper from his album The Mountain.
“I felt an authentic connection to this song the first time I heard and my attachment to it has only strengthened night after night as I watch our fans connect with it. It is as much their song as it is mine…we all face that push and pull of who we are as people,” said Bentley in a press release. “As always, I’m very grateful to Country Radio for continuing to help share this journey.”
Helping the Arizona native elevate the song to the next level was ACM and CMA-winning duo Brothers Osborne, who were eager to jump on the “Burning Man” train upon Bentley’s invite.
“I just called ‘em up and sent the song and got a huge ‘Yes’ back from both of them right away,” shared Bentley previously. “They came into the studio like two days later. It was just a great hang.”
The power packed tune will be a part of Bentley’s set list during his 2019 Burning Man Tour, featuring special guests Jon Pardi and Tenille Townes. The tour began on January 17 in Ontario and will run through March.
