Blake Shelton Ties George Strait & Alan Jackson With 26th No. 1 on Billboard Country Airplay Chart

Blake Shelton Ties George Strait & Alan Jackson With 26th No. 1 on Billboard Country Airplay Chart

Blake Shelton scored the 26th No. 1 single of his career as “God’s Country” ascended to No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

Blake’s new chart-topper puts him in a tie with George Strait (26) and Alan Jackson (26) at No. 3 on the all-time list for most No. 1 singles on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, which was launched in 1990. Now, Blake trails only Tim McGraw (29) and Kenny Chesney (30) on the all-time list.

The battle for the No. 1 spot on the all-time list appears to be a three-man race for the next few years.

Currently, Tim McGraw’s single, “Thought About You,” is No. 20 on the chart after 23 weeks, while Blake’s new duet with Garth Brooks, “Dive Bar,” is No. 24 after three weeks. Blake will probably drop a new solo single soon. Kenny Chesney will release his new single, “Tip of My Tongue,” on July 12.
