Reviver Records singer-songwriter Michael Tyler has gained his first No. 1 single, as a co-writer on Dierks Bentley’s latest hit “Somewhere on a Beach.” After remaining on Billboard Hot Country Song chart for 13 weeks, the single arose to the top of the Billboard chart ranking and reached No. 1 status the week of April 30.

The song is the lead single from Bentley’s eighth studio album, Black, due out on May 27.

“Michael is a hugely talented young songwriter,” said Reviver Records President David Ross. “Since signing with Reviver Records, we’ve mentioned time and again that the industry would quickly find out about Michael’s talents as both a writer and musician, and it looks as though it’s already happening!”

Tyler, a descendant of Jimmie Rodgers, is a singer-songwriter/musician hailing from Thayer, Missouri. Since moving to Nashville, he has had a hand in writing “Shipwrecked” and “Ain’t Startin’ Tonight” for Reviver Records label mates LOCASH. He also co-wrote “Laid Back” from Jason Aldean’s Old Boots, New Dirt album.

Tyler is signed with peermusic for publishing.
