Here is what Billboard had to say in their chart roundup:
Dierks Bentley closes a gap of more than two years at No. 1, as “Am I the Only One” draws 39.2 million audience impressions and becomes his first leader since “Sideways” ruled for two weeks in July 2009. The new chart-topper is Bentley’s eighth, a list that boasts three consecutive No. 1s between December 2005 and November 2006. He first led with debut single “What Was I Thinkin’” in September 2003. Reaching the summit in its 22nd chart week “Am I the Only One” is the artist’s second-longest No. 1 climb—he needed 24 weeks with “What Was I Thinkin’.” His best time to No. 1 was 17 weeks with “Every Mile a Memory” in late 2006.And from Mediabase/Country Aircheck:
Congrats to Dierks Bentley, Steve Hodges, Shane Allen and the entire Capitol/Nashville promotion team on scoring this week’s No. 1 with “Am I The Only One.” The chart-topper is the first single from a new album expected early next year.Here are the final numbers for those of you who are curious:
- Billboard 39.2 million audience impressions/5539 spins up 198 over LW
- Mediabase 40.6 million audience impressions/5934 spins up 231 over LW/854 points gain
