It’s the Same Story for Dierks Bentley as “Different for Girls” Goes No. 1 for 15th Career Chart-Topper

The past, present and future are bright for Dierks Bentley’s recent Black album.

In addition to debuting at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Country Albums chart in June, the album’s lead single, “Somewhere on a Beach,” hit No. 1 on both the Billboard Hot Country Songs and Billboard Country Airplay charts in April.

Dierks’ current single, “Different for Girls,” has followed suit, reaching No. 1 on this week’s Mediabase chart and Billboard Country Airplay chart to become his 15th career chart-topper. The breakup tune, which was penned by J.T. Harding and Shane McAnally, features bluesy rocker Elle King.

“I love this song,” says Dierks to Nash Country Daily. “It talks about how guys and girls handle heartbreak differently. Sometimes girls have an unfair double standard how they handle it. It’s kind of a heavier song, so I wanted a female voice on it. And it’s great having Elle on that track.”

Dierks and Elle’s duet recently received a CMA nomination for Musical Event of the Year. Dierks also picked up nominations for Male Vocalist, Album and Video of the Year.

No word yet on Dierk’s next single, but he’s got a handful of top choices to pick from, including “Light It Up,” “Freedom” and “I’ll Be the Moon,” which features Maren Morris.
