Blake Shelton Scores 26th No. 1 Single With “God’s Country”

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

Penned by Michael Hardy, Jordan Schmidt and Devin Dawson, “God’s Country” is Blake’s first No. 1 single since “I’ll Name the Dogs” topped the charts in December 2017.

“This is such a powerful song and I’m so proud to be a part of it,” says Blake. “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.”

Between select tour dates this summer—including a gig with George Strait in Foxborough, Mass., on Aug. 17—Blake is working on his forthcoming album and filming for the next season of The Voice. Blake also recently opened a new Ole Red location in Gatlinburg, Tenn., and celebrated the grand opening of The Doghouse, a music hall and events venue expansion, at the original Ole Red location in Tishomingo, Okla.
