Home: Chart and Album News!

In its 6th week on the charts, Dierks Bentley's "Home" moved to #23 on both the Billboard and Mediabase charts. The big win, however, was on the listener feedback charts. On the Callout America chart, "Home" rocketed up SEVEN spots to #14 with just a mere .7% of listeners saying they "strongly dislike" the song (what can I say? Haters are gonna hate). On the RadioFeedback chart, it moved another 3 spots to #13, between two of the strongest songs on the charts right now: Zac Brown Band's "Keep Me in Mind" and Eric Church's "Drink in My Hand."

Unfortunately, even though it's still growing healthily and gaining somewhat on Brad Paisley's "Camouflage," "Home" is likely to spend another week at #23 - nothing has or will fall out of the Top 10 to go recurrent, and all of the songs ahead of it are moving up as well. I expect upward movement will continue next week, however, and Top 20 is likely for week 8. Don't forget to buy your copy now on iTunes! :)
And the news we've all been waiting for was released this evening: the studio album "Home" has a release date! Mark your calendars for February 7, 2012! Isn't that cover fabulous?!

  1. Thanks for the update! Gonna be a long 3 months but can't wait for the release :)

  2. Thank you, Carrie! Always love your insightful updates. Happy to have a "Home" CD release date finally! Hoping for top 20 before Thanksgiving, cos then they will start Christmas music and we'll have to wait til January to start up the charts again! :( ~Ronna

  3. Thankfully, I think "Home" is a song that will sustain the holiday season - and get played during the holidays as well (ESPECIALLY with our troops coming home from Iraq in December). Last year, the holidays were what killed Draw Me a Map :(, but "Home" looks to be set up to make it through okay. Other songs will not fare so well.

  4. It's a great album cover. I had to save it. Can't wait for February! :)
