Bentley's Sideways goes to number one

Monday, June 29, 2009 – Dierks Bentley's Sideways takes over the number one spot this week on Billboard's Country Singles Chart from Out Last Night by Kenny Chesney. This is Bentley's second consecutive number one hit off "Feel That Fire" and his seventh career number one.

"We've been kicking our show off with Sideways, and it gets the party started quickly. Thanks to all the fans that have fun, get wild and a little 'sideways' during our show because we feed off of that energy," said Bentley. "I can't wait for the number one party for this one. I always said that this song would sound best blasting through boat speakers."

According to Country Aircheck's mid-year airplay report, Bentley trails only Keith Urban as the most played male artist on country radio so far this year.

The Phoenix-native is currently crisscrossing the country with Brad Paisley on his "American Saturday Night" tour.

That most evident by the dominating textured beats. Producer Ross Copperman and Bentley seem hell bent on injecting odd meters and sounds, sharp detours from past efforts. Unfortunately, the atmospheric beats muddy up the vocal delivery on "Freedom," a song that stretches far too long at almost four minutes. Bentley also channels U2 with its ...
CD review - Riser Change was in store for Dierks Bentley when it came to recording his seventh album, "Riser." On the personal front, he lost his father and added to his family, clearly affecting the subject matter of his latest. On the musical front, he traded long-time producer Brett Beavers, producer of every disc except "Up on the Ridge," for Ross Copperman, who has enjoyed more success as a writer, including several previous tracks for Bentley. Bentley embraces current trends in country ...
