Dierks Bentley Earns 10th Career No. 1 with ‘5-1-5-0′

Dierks Bentley celebrated his 10th career No. 1 song as an artist and songwriter today as his foot-stomping hit “5-1-5-0” tops both the Billboard and Mediabase 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. 1 hits on country radio…those guys and the fans have given me an unbelievable career so far.”

“5-1-5-0” is the third consecutive chart-topping hit off Bentley’s critically acclaimed Home, which debuted at No. 1 earlier this year. Fans can catch Bentley on E!’s new show “Opening Act” tonight at 10 p.m. ET when he surprises Kylie Morgan, a 16-year-old singer/songwriter from Oklahoma. From country music’s historic Grand Ole Opry, Bentley mentors the aspiring artist and helps her prepare to open a concert for fellow country artist Jason Aldean.

“5-1-5-0″ also appeared on CMIL’s Top 15 Songs Of Summer 2012. To see the full list, click HERE.
