Dierks Bentley’s long-awaited new album, Riser, hits stores today.  This album took longer than normal to finish because there was just so much going on his life including the passing of his father and his wife becoming pregnant with their third child.

Eric Paslay is no stranger to racking up #1 hits as a songwriter.  He wrote “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” and “Even If It Breaks Your Heart”.  But having your first #1 hit as an artist is a completely different story.  Eric just celebrated his chart-topping song “Friday Night” at a party in Nashville.

Cole Swindell has FINALLY hit the top of the charts with his debut single, “Chillin’ It”.  And though he does plan to splurge on a big-ticket item to celebrate his success at some point, for now he’ll probably just buy a new pair of boots.  He says he'll buy his mom something first, anyway.  Cole is also climbing the charts with a couple of songs he had in writing – namely Florida Georgia Line’s “This is How We Roll” and Thomas Rhett’s “Get Me Some of That”.

 



Jerrod Niemann just released the video for his new single “Drink To That All Night”.  Check it out now!!!
