Blake Shelton is one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers” (The New York Times). The country superstar’s single God Gave Me You recently broke the Top 10 and is his fastest rising single to date. The emotionally powerful single is off his new album Red River Blue. Red River Blue debuted at No. 1 on the Soundscan Top Current Albums chart and Soundscan Top Country Albums chart with the Associated Press calling the album “the best album of his career.” Shelton’s infectious multi-week No. 1 hit, Honey Bee is also off his new album and is Shelton’s first ever digital Platinum single. Shelton holds the record for the fastest-selling digital Platinum single for a male country solo artist. The single held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country chart for four weeks in a row with over 40 million in audience. No country artist has held this record in almost six years. The single marks Shelton’s fourth consecutive No. 1 hit: Honey Bee, Who Are You When I’m Not Looking, All About Tonight and Hillbilly Bone. Shelton has nine No. 1 hits and has not had a single peak outside the Top Ten since 2007.
Justin Moore will be heating up the stage with his recent #1 hit, If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.
