BLAKE SHELTON HAS RECORD BREAKING WEEK WITH “HONEY BEE”

“Honey Bee” sells over 138,000 digital singles in its debut week, a feat unmatched by any country male soloist to date!
This is Shelton’s highest charting debut single!

NASHVILLE, TN – (April 13, 2011) – A lot can happen in a week. This rings particularly true for hot country star Blake Shelton who sold over 138,000 digital singles of “Honey Bee” in its debut week, a feat unmatched by any country male soloist to date. “Honey Bee” also hit No. 31 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart and No. 36 on Country Aircheck Mediabase Chart making it his highest single chart debut. Shelton made the world premiere debut of “Honey Bee” last Sunday, April 3 LIVE on CBS at the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
This past year, 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 Award for "Male Vocalist of the Year," receiving 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, receiving his first GRAMMY nomination and is currently a coach on NBC's “The Voice” which premieres April 26. 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.
