Dierks Bentley had two big releases this week: his new record Riser – and his personal email address.
In the midst of sharing his excitement over his seventh studio album, the country singer screengrabbed an email from iTunes announcing that Riser was available for download – but forgot to crop out his own address.
His inbox was immediately flooded with hundreds of emails from fans, but Bentley, 38, kept a sense of humor about the situation. Quickly realizing his goof, the singer Tweeted, “Phone is gonna need some more Gbs. Yikes!”
“OMG y’all are killing me! Definitely my most “personal” album release ever,” Bentley joked. “Can’t help but love the emails/stories” he added, including a photo of his inbox touting 536 unread messages.
Although he eventually figured out his social media situation – “Going to try this again. Triple checked. No email address!” he wrote Tuesday – PEOPLE got an exclusive look at what landed in his inbox after Bentley’s first attempt.
Here’s a peek at the messages the musician received, which range from funny to heartfelt.
“If you read this . I would love the [chance] to sing with you! – I am a nursing student that sings at church and loves country music!”
“It would be SO awesome to actually get an email back from you! Your music is so good! – Keep doing what you’re doing, because it’s working!”
“Just wanted to say sorry you showed us all your email, but I hope you realize how far spread the reach of great music is. I saw you in concert in August 2011 and although I was already a big fan, that mini concert was one of my favorites ever. Your storytelling and easygoing nature is captivating. Good luck with Riser and all future endeavors.”
