Award-winning country music superstar and Tishomingo resident Blake Shelton has broken his own record and made history once again with his 12th consecutive No. 1 single, “My Eyes,” featuring his former “The Voice” competitor Gwen Sebastian.
Marking the most consecutive No. 1’s in monitored country airplay history, “My Eyes” is the Ada native’s 17th No. 1 overall and fifth single off his Grammy-nominated album “Based on a True Story…,” according to a news release.
Shelton made history earlier this year when “Doin’ What She Likes,” originally broke the record, as his 11th No. 1 single in a row. “My Eyes,” one of Shelton’s fastest rising singles to date, raced to the top of the chart in only 11 weeks.
Shelton is currently on the road on his “Ten Times Crazier Tour” 2014 promoted by LiveNation and sponsored by JC Penney and Pepsi. The tour, which unfortunately doesn’t include any Oklahoma dates at this point, launched a week ago in Austin, Texas, the namesake city of his very first No. 1 single.
Dates on the tour include upcoming summer visits to Wrigley Field in Chicago and Madison Square Garden in NYC, along with a fall visit at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Shelton’s “Ten Times Crazier” 2014 dates feature The Band Perry, Dan + Shay and Neal McCoy.
