Dierks Bentley’s ‘I Hold On’ Earns Gold Certification
Dierks Bentley‘s single ‘I Hold On’ has been officially certified gold, with over 500,000 downloads.
‘I Hold On,’ off of Bentley’s latest album, ‘Riser,’ is the singer’s 11th career No. 1 single.
“I’ve said from the beginning, if you want to know who I am in three minutes and thirty seconds, play this song,” he says. “The fact that country radio and the fans got on board for this one, and that I’m getting such great feedback to the entire album is so overwhelming. There are a lot of songs on this album I want to get to as singles, and there is no better way to do that than to start off with a big hit. I am really grateful that country radio continues to like what I’m doing and supports me and my music.”
Bentley recently released ‘Drunk on a Plane,’ his second single off of ‘Riser,’ which tells the story of a man who is left at the altar.
“I have never been jilted at the altar, but I have had a marriage proposal rejected….all you can do is pray there’s a good return policy for the ring, get drunk and carry on,” Bentley, who co-wrote the tune, says.
Fans can hear both songs as Bentley embarks on the Riser Tour, which kicks off May 9 in Charlotte, N.C.
