From that moment on, Dierks’ career took off like a rocket, releasing his second album Modern Day Drifter in 2005. which spawned two number one singles, “Come a Little Closer” and “Settle for a Slowdown.” It was with that album that the “Lot’s of Leavin’ Left to Do” singer took home the CMA Horizon Award in 2005.
