's Dierks Bentley recently enjoyed a two-week run at #1 on Mediabase's Country radio chart. In the above pic, he can be seen celebrating the fruits of his labor with his songwriting team; they are (L-R) SESAC's Michael Tyler (peermusic), BMI's Alexander Palmer (BMG Nashville), Bentley, ASCAP's Josh Mirenda (Warner/Chappell) and Dave Kuncio (The Brain) and SESAC's Jaron Boyer (peermusic) A platter of tequila-infused fruit was then passed around, and UMG Nashville ruler Mike Dungan may or may not have been wearing a hula skirt. We imagine life felt way less beachy the next morning.

This marks Bentley's 14th #1. Tyler, Palmer, Mirenda and Kuncio are now first-time #1 songwriters; Boyer achieved such an honor once before.

Black, the album on which "Somewhere" is housed, is now certified gold. And follow-up single "Different for Girls," which features Elle King, just broke into the Top 20 at Country radio.
