NASHVILLE, TN – (February 21, 2011) – Within 10 months, Top Male Vocalist and ACM Award Co-Host Blake Shelton receives his third consecutive No. 1 single on the Billboard and Country Aircheck (Mediabase) charts with “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking.” This hit marks Shelton’s eighth No. 1 single and his first triple back-to-back No. 1 singles of his career.
Upon hearing that “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking” went No. 1, Blake said “Three No. 1’s in a row?! Thank you to every single person who works at a country radio station, you allow me to do the one thing that I love to do most in this world and that’s sing country music. I….Love…Y’all!”
In the last 10 months, Blake Shelton, one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers” (The New York Times), proves he is a force to be reckoned with after winning six awards including CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, three consecutive No. 1's ("Who Are You When I'm Not Looking," "All About Tonight" and "Hillbilly Bone"), selling out shows on his first ever headlining tour “All About Tonight Tour,” his first No. 1 album All About Tonight, his first GRAMMY nomination and his first ACM Award nomination for “Top Male Vocalist of the Year.” In addition to these amazing accolades, Shelton's latest CD, LOADED: The Best of Blake Shelton, debuted in the Top 10 on the Country Charts adding Shelton into an elite group of artists who have charted three records in one year (among those are Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney and Alan Jackson). Shelton’s eight No. 1 hits are “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” “All About Tonight,” “Hillbilly Bone,” “She Wouldn’t Be Gone,” “Home,” “Some Beach,” “The Baby” and “Austin.” Shelton has not had a single peak outside the Top Ten since 2007.
Shelton will co-host this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards with country music superstar Reba. The 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will broadcast LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 3rd, 2011 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
