Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley was joined by family and friends on Monday to celebrate his 18th career No. One single "Burning Man” feat. Brothers Osborne as it serves as the second consecutive chart-topper off of his ninth studio album THE MOUNTAIN. Teaming up with BMI at Martin's BBQ in downtown Nashville, Bentley and Brothers Osborne celebrated the ACM award-winning hit alongside co-writers Bobby Pinson (BMI) and Luke Dick (BMI), as it serves as Dick's first No. One celebration.
When you release songs to radio it’s like the cliff notes of your album and 'Burning Man’ is one of the most important pieces of THE MOUNTAIN,” said Bentley. “When you do a collaboration it’s a leap of faith but there is no one else that could have done what these guys did on this song. We were in direct communication with no one else involved you know…John walks in with his guitar and amp...I’ve just been really lucky to work with people like these guys where it’s all about the music and friendship. It’s rare to find that outside of Nashville and a really unique thing that is happening in Country music right now."
When he sent us the song it was done and already sounded awesome," added TJ Osborne, “I’m such a fan of Dierks and when I listened to the demo, it already sounded like a Dierks hit and it took me a minute to really make it mine. To take that risk on us with something that already sounded great was all on Dierks.”
