Dierks Bentley's latest single "I Wanna Make You Close Your Eyes" moves up 2 spots this week to #12 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.

You might remember last week I mentioned that it's audience growth and spin increases had somewhat petered off, and I am happy to report that it's experiencing a fairly healthy bounce-back, which I expect to continue as it moves up the chart. This week, it's audience grew by 1.9 million listeners, which is in the top 10 for song growth. It's currently #5 in spin increases as well.

If you take audience completely out of the equation, IWMYCYE can do no worse than #8. Obviously, we know it's going to do much better than that, but that is based on attrition of the songs above it alone.

Can it crack the top 10 next week? We shall see! Everybody have a great week! Don't forget to vote for the IWMYCYE video, too!
