– Blake Shelton's latest single, Over,
marks his seventh consecutive number 1 and his 12th to date.
Shelton takes over for Love And Theft's Angel Eyes. Shelton has not had a single peak outside the Top Ten since 2007. The song is the fourth single off Shelton's "Red River Blue."
"Long before The Voice, the only place you could hear my voice was on country radio. I owe a lot of my success to the support of my fans and radio," Shelton said, referring to the television show on which he stars.
The chart will be officially out on Thursday.
Shelton will release his first Christmas album, "Cheers, It's Christmas" on Oct. 2 on Warner Bros. Records. The album will feature several duet performances including fellow The Voice advisor Michael Bublé, long-time friend Reba and a very special duet with his mother, Dorothy Shackleford. The album includes classic Christmas songs that have touched Shelton over the years. Many of the tracks were also recorded at Capitol Studios with full orchestral accompaniment.
