Blake Shelton Sets a New Country Music Record
While Blake Shelton has been busy preparing to host Sunday night's (April 6) ACM Awards, the singer has set a new country music record.
Shelton's latest single, 'Doin' What She Likes,' has scored him his 11th consecutive No. 1 country hit, setting a record since 1990, when Nielsen Soundscan began tracking hits.
Shelton passes up Brad Paisley, who has held the record he scored with his eighth No. 1 in 2006 with 'Waitin' On a Woman.' Paisley went on to grab a ninth hit with 'Start a Band' in 2008, and a 10th in 2009 with 'Then.'
Shelton is co-hosting Sunday's awards show with Luke Bryan. He will also be performing with his fellow 'The Voice' judge Shakira during the evening. Other confirmed artists include Stevie Nicks with Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Toby Keith, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, George Strait, the Band Perry and Hunter Hayes.
