Black is the eighth studio album from Dierks Bentley, it follows “Somewhere On A Beach” and “Different For Girls” in reaching the #1 position on the chart and gives Bentley his 16th #1 song.
“‘Every single we’ve put out this year has been a really important piece of the story of this album, but ‘Black’ is the one that’s really the cornerstone of the whole project, and it’s about my wife. Watching this one rise to the top of the chart is extra sweet,” said Bentley.
Before Bentley’s wife Cassidy took his last name her last name was “Black”, which is where the album and song title came from. The song “Black” describes the passion Bentley feels for his wife, making the single one of his most personal songs to date.
