Blake Shelton‘s latest single, “God’s Country” crowns both the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard Country Airplay charts in less than four months since its radio debut. The tune is Shelton’s 26th country radio No. 1 and earlier this year became his 16th Billboard Hot Country Songs chart-topper.
“This is such a powerful song and I’m so proud to be a part of it,” said Shelton. “When I first heard the song I thought it sounded like a remedy. Like a cure. It just sounds like a missing link in country music for the last 10 or 12 years. It feels like a combination of ‘Ole Red’ and ‘Country Boy Can Survive’ to me which definitely have a place in country music. Those songs are just rare. As long as I’ve been making music I’m still shocked and amazed at the power of a song and I’m never prepared for it.‘God’s Country’ is an anthem for anybody and everybody who’s proud of where they come from. I’m honored to have been given this song from Devin Dawson, Hardy and Jordan Schmidt who are incredible writers.”
With more than 125 million on-demand streams already, the song is the fastest country single in the past year to reach one million track equivalents.
