On the heels of his Ripcord World Tour, Country music phenom Keith Urban has earned his 21st No. 1 hit on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart with “Blue Ain’t Your Color.”
This also marks a rare feat— the track is No. 1 on three Billboard charts concurrently: Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs, and Country Digital Song Sales.
“Despite the waltz time signature, I feel it is more of a soul song,” Urban shared with Billboard in an interview. “We worked for a long time in the studio to get the feel and simplicity to where it is. Certainly when [parent album] Ripcord came out [in May], it was definitely one of the tracks that people responded to immediately. Even when we kicked off the tour [in June], it was getting the same reaction live. I loved it the first time I heard it [and] I love playing it live, so it’s really the best feeling when it connects the way that this one has.”
After earning his 21st No. 1 hit, Urban is currently in sixth place for the most career No. 1s in the history of the Billboard’s Country Airplay chart. He follows Country stars Tim McGraw (29), Kenny Chesney (27), Alan Jackson (24), George Strait (24), and Blake Shelton (22).
