Dierks Bentley Earns 20th #1 Single with “Gone”

Dierks Bentley’s song “Gone” rises to the top of the country music charts this week, earning him his 20th number-one single at country radio.

Dierks Bentley is one of the most recognizable names in the country music genre. Back in October, he released his brand new single, “Gone,” and it was clear then that he had another hit on his hands. Today, Bentley’s song “Gone” is officially the number one song at country radio.

Written by Nicolle Galyon, Ben Johnson, and singer-songwriter, Niko Moon, “Gone” was primed for greatness. The song is all about a man going into hiding when his lover walks out of him. Bentley manages to bring the broodiness and the cheekiness to life with this creative tune. When asked about the song, the singer related it to how he felt sitting at home during the quarantine. He missed being out on the road.

“My buddies think I’m on the lake // Boss thinks I’ve been sick for days // And mama’s probably on her way // ‘Cause I ain’t picked up the phone // I’ve been a million places // But they’re all up in my head // Over-drinking, overthinking ever since you left // I’ve been gone, I’ve been gone”

“Gone” overtook Luke Combs’ mega-hit “Forever After All,” which sat in the top spot for three weeks straight. The song is Bentley’s second consecutive #1, following “Living.” It marks an impressive twenty number ones for the superstar.
