After debuting at #1 on The Billboard 200 Album Chart last week with his new album BRINGING BACK THE SUNSHINE Blake Shelton makes history as the first country music artist to hit #1 on the Billboard Artist 100. The chart, which factors in album and digital song sales, plus radio airplay, saw Blake rise from #19 to #1. “Neon Light,” the first single from the new album is Top 5 and climbing.

The four-time and reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year has 3 nominations for the upcoming CMA Awards including Entertainer of the Year, which he won in 2012, Male Vocalist and Single of the Year for “Mine Would Be You.”

With 12 singles, including five from his last album alone, Shelton has the most No. 1's in a row on the country radio charts by any artist. Joining the ranks of the Grand Ole Opry as a member since 2010, Shelton has earned a host of awards and nominations throughout his career, including three new CMA Award nominations this year for Entertainer and Male Vocalist of the Year, along with Song of the Year for "Mine Would Be You."
