Shelton is all about number one
Monday, August 16, 2010
– Blake Shelton hits number one on the Billboard and Country Aircheck (Mediabase) charts with his single, All About Tonight.
This is Shelton's second chart topper of the year - Hillbilly Bone
did the trick on March 15 - and seventh of his career.
Shelton has not had a single peak outside the Top 10 since 2007.
"I just want to thank my fans, friends and country radio for making this single a number one for me," said Shelton. "I have never had two number ones within five months of each other...I said this back in March, and I'll say it again, this is the best year of my career. Thank you."
Shelton's latest six-song EP is produced by Scott Hendricks. Shelton's first six pack, "Hillbilly Bone," was released earlier this year and debuted at 3 on Billboard's Top 200 chart and 2 on the Top Country Albums Chart. It also featured the number one title track with longtime friend Trace Adkins. Shelton hits include his back-to-back multi-week number one singles, She Wouldn't Be Gone and Home, his six-week number one debut single, Austin and two additional multi-week chart topping singles with The Baby and Some Beach.

It's a rollicking ode to domesticity that manages to make household chore distribution ("You find the spot and I'll find the money / You be the pretty and I'll be the funny") both romantic and amusing. The beat switches to hip-hop on "Money," but the sentiment ...
This six-song "Blake Shelton Live EP" seems a little odd. It's not as though Shelton had an especially noteworthy tour to document. Besides, at only six songs long, it's a relatively short document, anyhow. While it may be little more than a post-it note of a project, though, it also packs a powerful punch.
You recognize right away the large amount of enthusiasm the act of singing to an audience brings out of Shelton. When compared to the recorded versions of these hits, ...
