Monday, March 15, 2010
– Blake Shelton's Hillbilly Bone,
featuring, Trace Adkins, will be number one on the Billboard and Country Aircheck (Mediabase) charts, making it Shelton's sixth number one.
Shelton assumes the top spot from That's How Country Boys Roll by Billy Currington, who held the spot for one week.
"I'm honored how country radio has embraced me over the last 10 years," said Shelton. "You dream of having a number one song all your life, and now country radio has blessed me with six. I want to personally thank every program director, music director and on-air personality who has played this single. Thank you all for your support over the years. I also want to thank John Esposito, Bob Reeves and the Warner Music Nashville promotion team. I am forever grateful for the support you guys have given me. I couldn't ask for a better family. Last, but definitely not least, I want to thank Trace Adkins for singing on this song. He definitely helped bring it home to number one."
Shelton will be appearing on E! Entertainment's "Chelsea Lately" on March 18.
