Blake Shelton Passes George Strait & Alan Jackson for Third Place on Billboard Country Airplay All-Time List

Blake Shelton scored his 27th No. 1 single as his duet with girlfriend Gwen Stefani, “Nobody But You,” ascended to No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

Blake’s 27th No. 1 single on the Billboard Country Airplay chart puts him into third place on the all-time list, following Kenny Chesney (30) and Tim McGraw (29). Blake’s latest chart-topper breaks the third-place tie he held with Alan Jackson (26) and George Strait (26).

Penned by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, “Nobody But You” is one of four new tracks on Blake’s 2019 album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country.I

“I knew the moment I heard this song that I wanted to record it,” says Blake. “Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, you wrote a perfect song in which every lyric has meaning in my life, and I thank you. Another thanks goes to the fans who continue to listen—and I know there are a lot of distractions these days—one day soon we can all celebrate music together again. And finally, thanks to Gwen for joining me and making this one of the most special songs I’ve recorded. Congratulations on your first number one country single!”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
