Blake Shelton Breaks His Own Record

(Radio.com) Breaking an historic record is fun. Breaking one you set yourself just six months ago? Even cooler. This week, Blake Shelton hit the top of both the Billboard and Mediabase country airplay singles charts with "My Eyes," a duet with his onetime Voice protege Gwen Sebastian. It's Shelton's 12th consecutive No. 1 country single, and it sets a new record for consecutive No. 1 hits in country music.

It's also a record that Shelton already held, thanks to his previous chart-topping hit "Doin' What She Likes," which earlier this year became his 11th No. 1 hit in a row. Both songs are from his 2013 album Based on a True Story….

"My Eyes" is also the fifth No. 1 radio hit from Based on a True Story…-the rest have included "Doin' What She Likes," "Boys Round Here," "Sure Be Cool If You Did" and "Mine Would Be You."

In discussing that album earlier this year, producer Scott Hendricks told Radio.com that "we honestly set out to make what we wanted to be the album of the year, and we set our standards high on the songs." more on this story
