Though Blake Shelton didn’t net any nods at the 2017 CMA Awards, the Oklahoman still has something to celebrate this week. Shelton made history with six of the eleven tracks from his brand new record Texoma Shore simultaneously hitting the charts at country radio, five of which (“At The House,” “I Lived It,” Turnin’ Me On,” “Money” and “I Lived It”) made their world premieres last week leading up to album’s release. While the other songs are making their chart debuts, Shelton’s current single “I’ll Name The Dogs” has climbed into the Top 10 in just eight weeks and boasts over 17 million streams.

“At the end of the day, I make music so that it can be heard,” Shelton shared in a statement. “It’s amazing that so many songs from a brand new album have been embraced so early. I’m proud of this record and the work that went into making it, and I’m proud that already it means something to my fans. Thanks to country radio for the support.”
The chart-topping country artist will continue to celebrate the brand new album on the road in 2018 on his headlining Country Music Freaks Tour alongside Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce and special guest Trace Adkins. Texoma Shore follows Shelton’s last album, If I’m Honest, which was the best-selling country album released in 2016.
