Do You Remember What Blake Shelton’s First Number One Hit Was in 2001? [VIDEO]
Can you imagine having every song you release go to number one on the charts? That has been reality for Blake Shelton the last few years. Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Eric Church are topping the charts regularly as well but there is no bigger name in all of music than Blake Shelton. He has earned it too. This man has worked his tail off for years, touring, shaking hands, making friends and making nothing but hits. It seems every song that Blake has released lately has gone to number one. The truth is that they have.
It all started on this date back in 2001 though. I will always remember this date because Blake was actually sitting in this very studio when we got word that his debut single “Austin” had hit number one. Blake had just finished telling us a story about how he had just had the honor of going to Earl Thomas Conley’s house to meet him and how thrilled he was when he got to pee in ETC’s toilet. He has always been hilarious. Happy anniversary of the first of many many number ones Blake. If anyone is ever going to catch George Strait for most number ones, it might be you.
