In just a 15-week climb, Blake Shelton’s “God’s Country” has rolled into the No. 1 parking space on Billboard’s country airplay charts. According to CMT, It’s Shelton’s 27th single to take up residence there, 17 of which were consecutive. And to the surprise of absolutely no one, Luke Combs’ This One’s for You continues its tenure as the bestselling county album. It’s also at the No. 13 niche on The Billboard 200 all-genres chart. Both Luke and Blake are enjoying huge success obviously.
I was all in on God’s Country from the moment I heard it. It speaks volumes to many of us, so good for you Blake, now how about you get busy and crank out another tune that we can relate to! There have been many opinions about where country music is at today. I’m not a fan of all of it, and I’m also a huge fan of some of it. I think the neat thing with this genre of music is we all can relate to it in some fashion, that’s what country music has done over the years. When it comes to Blake Shelton and Luke Combs, I think we’re in good hands.
