Dierks Bentley has plenty of reason to celebrate with the news that his new album Black has topped the Billboard Top Albums Chart and the Top Country Albums Chart.

The critically acclaimed set moved over 101,000 units upon release with 88,000 of those as traditional album scans. Black’s sales rank as the best-selling release of Bentley’s career to date.

The album’s lead single Somewhere on a Beach has been a huge number one hit and follow-up Different for Girls featuring Elle King made its debut this week as the most added at Country Radio with more than 100 first week stations on board.
