The last time the Academy of Country Music and CMT Award winner had a single top the charts at three plus weeks was in 2004 with his four-week number 1 single, Some Beach. Shelton is the only solo male country artist - one of three artists overall - to log more than one chart-topper so far this year on Billboard's Hot Country Songs and has not had a single peak outside the top 10 since 2007.
Shelton's latest six-song EP, ""Hillbilly Bone," was produced by Scott Hendricks. Shelton sang the title track, which went number one, with friend Trace Adkins.
