Monday, February 21, 2011
– Blake Shelton is on a roll as he will notch his third consecutive number one when the Billboard and Country Aircheck (Mediabase) are officially released this week thanks to Who Are You When I'm Not Looking?
This hit marks Shelton's eighth number one single and his first triple back-to-back number one singles of his career.
"Three number ones in a row?" said Shelton upon hearing the news. "Thank you to every single person who works at a country radio station, you allow me to do the one thing that I love to do most in this world, and that's sing country music. I love y'all."
Shelton's two other number ones for his streak were All About Tonight and Hillbilly Bone.
Shelton will co-host this year's Academy of Country Music Awards with Reba McEntire on April 3.
