Over the course of his career, Dierks Bentley has earned a total of 13 number one hits. The songs vary from romantic ballads like "Come A Little Closer," to fun-filled tunes such as his first number one hit, "What Was I Thinkin.'" 

One of Bentley's most recognizable songs, "Drunk On A Plane," is definitely considered to be one of the singer's more fun-loving tunes.

Released in April 2014 as the third single from Bentley's album Riser, "Drunk On A Plane," climbed to the top spot on the Billboard U.S. County Airplay chart four months later. The song then went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA  the following month.

Since "Drunk On A Plane" was such a huge hit for Bentley, it makes sense that he chose to perform it during the CMA's in November 2014.

Bentley's performance is extremely energizing, as he bounces around on stage while he sings. The screens behind him are just as lively, as they flash images of an airport runway and an arrivals and departures board.

According to the smile on his face, it's clear that Bentley has a blast performing the song. Based on the excited cheers from the crowd, we'd say they all had a fun time as well!

Watch Bentley's highly entertaining performance of "Drunk On A Plane" in the video below.

Bentley's performances are always incredible, but this is definitely one of our favorites! 

LYRICS BELOW

I took two weeks vacation for the honeymoon
A couple tickets all inclusive down in Cancun
I couldn't get my money back so I'm in seat 7A
I'm getting drunk on a plane

I bet the fella on the aisle thought I was crazy
Cause I taped your picture to the seatback right beside me
Now I've got empty mini bottles fillin' both our trays
I'm getting drunk on a plane

Buyin' drinks for everybody
But the pilot, it's a party
Got this 737 rocking like a G6
Stewardess is somethin' sexy
Leanin' pourin' Coke and whiskey
Told her about my condition
Got a little mile-high flight attention
It's Mardi Gras up in the clouds
I'm up so high, I may never come down
I'll try anything to drown out the pain
They all know why I'm getting drunk on a plane

We had this date marked on the calendar forever
We'd take that new wed limo airport ride together
I feel like a plastic groom alone there at the top of the cake
So hey, I'm getting drunk on a plane

Buyin' drinks for everybody
But the pilot, it's a party
Got this 737 rocking like a G6
Stewardess is somethin' sexy
Leanin' pourin' Coke and whiskey
Told her about my condition
Got a little mile-high flight attention
It's Mardi Gras up in the clouds
I'm up so high, I may never come down
I'll try anything to drown out the pain
They all know why I'm getting drunk on a plane

On my way home I'll bump this seat right up to first class
So I can drink that cheap champagne out of a real glass
And when we land I'll call her up and tell her kiss my ass
'Cause hey, I'm drunk on a plane

Buyin' drinks for everybody
But the pilot, it's a party
Got this 737 rocking like a G6
Stewardess is somethin' sexy
Leanin' pourin' Coke and whiskey
Told her about my condition
Got a little mile-high flight attention
It's Mardi Gras up in the clouds
I'm up so high, I may never come down
I'll try anything to drown out the pain
They all know why I'm getting drunk on a plane

I'm getting drunk on a plane
I might be passed out
In the baggage claim
But right now
I'm drunk on a plane
