Dierks Bentley continues to be a dominant voice for the genre with over 6.4 billion streams. Reaching a new creative high while “making music designed to challenge” (New York Times), Bentley co-wrote 10 of 13 tracks on his last album "The Mountain", which earned him the highest debut sales of his career and became his seventh chart-topping release. Following his 20th No. One hit at Country radio, he continues to climb the chart with his current Top 20 single “Gone.” Bentley has amassed countless nominations from the ACM's, CMA's, Billboard Music Awards and more while also earning 14 GRAMMY nominations.
With Sam Williams
Sam Williams has a low-key, emotionally intimate approach that's closer to contemporary folk and moody pop than country, and his songs don't take place in honky tonks. His early singles --2016's blues-influenced "Darkwater" and 2018's twangy "The Lost Grandchild's Plea" - delved into rollicking roots music, but by the time of 2021's Glasshouse Children, he fashioned a more mature and introspective tone.
