Dierks Bentley Celebrates 'Black' With Nashville Party

Dierks Bentley celebrated his latest Number One hit, "Black," with a party in Nashville yesterday (Thursday, June 22nd). Dierks is no stranger to the top of the charts, but he tells us that just because a song is a Number One doesn't mean it gets played night after night. In the case of "Black," it will always make the set list. He explains:"There's some songs that have bigger impact than others. I've played Number Ones that I don't even do in the live show anymore. I just don't feel like they have the impact but songs like this, I feel like, will always have that impact, so it's not about just getting the Number Ones. It's about finding a song that's Number One that will also you can tell statistically will sell singles on iTunes, but also just mostly for me just feel when you go out there on the stage and you watch the song grow from nobody knowing it to people getting excited when they hear the first bits of the music, and it's a song, too, that I had to get more comfortable singing. Over the years you go from a guy just playing guitar to trying to adapt to the stage and the environment you're in playing these big rooms and this is a song that definitely . . . I wish the ACMs were now because I feel so much more comfortable singing this song. You also have to push yourself as a songwriter and as a performer. This song has definitely stretched me as a performer and I feel so much more comfortable on stage with this song now. It feels more natural to me than when I first started, so . . . " in Jones Beach, NY with special guest Cole Swindell and Jon Pardi.

Thomas Rhett Just Trying To 'Enjoy The Ride' Of Career

Anybody watching Thomas Rhett’s career at this point can clearly see that his star is rising incredibly quickly. He's charted several Number One hits as both a singer and songwriter and his first jump to headliner has proven to be a success, but can he feel his star rising from inside the fish bowl? He tells us: "No, I think you got to be on the outside to know. I think for me personally I’m just trying to enjoy the ride and trying to cherish all these great moments because we have gotten to do a lot of cool stuff over the past couple of years, and especially this year getting to headline, and having a baby, and putting a record out is probably the busiest year of my life. But it’s a lot of good things I’ll remember for a lifetime."

Thomas' personal life is just as crazy with the adoption of daughter Willa Gray this spring and the impending birth of his second daughter, who is due on August 8th.

Thomas is preparing to release his next album later this year featuring his latest single, "Craving You." The Maren Morris collaboration currently sits in the Top Five on the country charts.
