For some people, 13 is far from a lucky number. For Blake Shelton, however, the singer scoffs at such superstitions, having just scored his record-breaking 13th consecutive #1 single. With “Neon Light” stealing the top spot, Shelton breaks his own record for 12 consecutive #1s, and scores his 18th total top hit.
“It’s always exciting to have a No. 1 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,” Shelton said in a statement. “It has elements of a song that one of my heroes, Earl Thomas Conley, might have recorded.”
Shelton recently tied another record, scoring his fifth straight award for Male Vocalist of the Year at last week’s CMA Awards. There, he premiered his new single, “Lonely Tonight” with Ashley Monroe, which #CMChat’s Jen Swirsky reviewed here. Will it be his 14th consecutive #1 hit? All signs point to yes!
