Country music megastar Blake Shelton was already holding the record for the most consecutive Number 1 hits in country music. However, Blake just broke his own record by adding another top spot-holding track to his repertoire.
Blake’s latest single, a duet with his background vocalist, Gwen Sebastian, just claimed the Number 1 spot on the charts, making this Blake’s twelfth consecutive chart topping hit in a row. “My Eyes” is Blake’s seventeenth Number 1 song overall and fifth single off his Grammy-nominated album Based on a True Story. Blake previously made history earlier this year when “Doin’ What She Likes” became his eleventh Number 1 single in a row, breaking the prior record. “My Eyes” is one of Blake’s fastest rising singles to date, claiming the Number 1 spot on the charts in only eleven weeks.
Congratulations to Blake on his huge accomplishment, and a special shout-out to #CMchat friend, Gwen Sebastian, on her first Number 1 hit! We know Blake will continue to beat his own records and that this is just the first of many Number 1’s for Gwen!
