Shelton makes history

Monday, November 10, 2014 – Blake Shelton made history again.

Following his record tying fifth consecutive CMA Male Vocalist of the Year Award last week, Shelton breaks his own record again with"Neon Light," becoming his 13th consecutive number one single.

This set the record for most consecutive number one songs on the Billboard and Mediabase country charts during the monitored airplay era. "Neon Light" is his 18th chart topper overall and first single off his latest album "Bringing Back the Sunshine."

"It's always exciting to have a number one record, and I'm especially proud of this one because this song blends the current sound on country radio with the traditional feel that I grew up with," said Shelton. "It has elements of a song that one of my heroes, Earl Thomas Conley, might have recorded."

Shelton debuted the second single, "Lonely Tonight" featuring Ashley Monroe at the CMAs.

Live EP CD review - Live EP
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.
