With his self-titled debut project dropping over 20 years ago, Dierks Bentley is back with his 10th studio album titled Gravel & Gold, and it is sure to be a smash hit!

Not only is this Bentley’s 10th studio album, but the project also serves as his first full-length project since The Mountain in 2018. After five years of just singles, remixes and collaborations, fans were definiteyyyy in need of another project from the GRAMMY Award-winner, and everyone is thrilled to have Gravel & Gold on this week’s New Music Friday playlist.

The album features 14 outstanding tracks, including hit singles like “Same Ol’ Me” and “Gold,” as well as collaborations with Ashley McBryde on “Cowboy Boots” and Billy Strings on “High Note.” Every single song is truly a must-listen!

Gravel & Gold is meant to take fans on an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish, with “Gravel” representing the lows of life and “Gold” representing the highs of life. We can confirm that the album does exactly that, and you NEED to go check it out for yourself.

Aside from Dierks Bentley’s phenomenal new album, Ben Gallaher released a project that we are obsessed with as well. Country In The House is out now on all music streaming platforms, and all 15 of its tracks are soon-to-be hits.

With albums aside, some incredible singles were also featured on this week’s New Music Friday playlist, including “Joe” by Luke Combs, “Creek Will Rise” by Conner Smith, “Light On In The Kitchen” by Ashley McBryde, “Same Here” by Brad Paisley, “Wasted Prayers” by Matt Schuster, “Treated Me Good” by Ingrid Andress and more.

After capturing the hearts of America in 2006 and being crowned the champion of American Idol season five, Taylor Hicks is even making his return to music with a brand new single titled “Porch Swing.” After a hiatus of over ten years, we could not be more excited to see Hicks back on our New Music Friday playlist!
