In its 13th week on the charts, Dierks Bentley's latest hit "Am I the Only One" has cracked the top 10! It came in this week at #10 on Mediabase, and #11 on Billboard (but have no fear, as Brad Paisley and Keith Urban will go recurrent, so it will easily be #9 next week). And, as of tomorrow, it will be #9 on Mediabase as well, as it moves past the falling Keith Urban single.
As if that's not enough cause for excitement, I was very pleased to see that it also has cracked the Top FIVE on the Callout America chart (which is a over-the-phone listener survey). Billboard's Country Update had this to say about the new addition to the Top 5:
Dierks Bentley is new to the top five in Callout America as “Am I the Only One” comes in at No. 5, up from No. 6 last week and No. 12 two weeks ago. Core 35-44s grade it at No. 3 and consider it No. 4 when asked to name their favorite song. Core females are No. 6 overall and No. 3 favorite; core males are No. 5 and No. 4 favorite.Clearly the "core males" and "core females" aren't all DBC Reps, but it's still a very strong showing, which I'm sure Capitol Nashville will use to tout the song in a few weeks as it closes in on the top spot. I envision ads that say "power up for the 8th #1 hit!"
Make sure radio knows you're not tired of this great song! And keep in mind the great exposure it's getting tonight on the NHL Awards... in just a few weeks, we should be able to celebrate our Presidents' latest #1 hit!
