Blake Shelton tops both the Mediabase/Country Aircheck and Billboard Country Airplay charts this week with “God's Country.” It’s Blake's 26th country radio Number One and earlier this year became his 16th Billboard Hot Country Songs chart-topper.
Blake said, “This is such a powerful song and I’m so proud to be a part of it. 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 . . . ‘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, “God's Country” is the fastest country single in the past year to reach one million track equivalents.
