Blake Shelton & Ashley Monroe Earn No. 1 with “Lonely Tonight”

Blake Shelton and Ashley MOnroe

Blake Shelton has continued his historic run atop the charts, this time bringing a friend along for the ride.

Shelton’s duet with Warner Bros. Records label mate and close friend Ashley Monroe hit No. 1 this week on both the Billboard and Mediabase country charts. It’s Shelton’s 14th consecutive chart-topper in both polls, a genre record in the monitored airplay era and Monroe’s first No. 1. Shelton now has 19 total No. 1 hits to date.

“It’s absolutely unbelievable to have my 19th # 1 song and 14th in a row — I’m blown away,” said Shelton. “But what I’m most excited about with this particular song is that it’s the launch of Ashley Monroe’s solo career and she’s so talented and deserves this opportunity. That’s really the highlight of this one for me is to see her finally getting the credit she’s deserved for a long time.”

“Thanks to Blake from the bottom of my heart for inviting me to be a part of this special song,” said Monroe. “It’s so incredible to see my name aside his at the #1 spot on the charts. Since I was a little girl it’s been my dream to be a part of country radio and this is truly a dream come true for me.”

The Academy of Country Music Awards-nominated song is the second No. 1 single from his new album BRINGING BACK THE SUNSHINE for “The Voice” coach, Country Music Association Awards Entertainer of the Year and reigning five-time Male Vocalist of the Year. Shelton started the eighth season of “The Voice” earlier this month with popular coach pursuing Team Blake’s fifth win.

Shelton is also preparing to co-host the 50th ACM Awards with Luke Bryan at the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas where he is also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year. The performer will play a selection of major festival dates through this summer.

Ty Herndon is Not Changing the ‘He’s for ‘She’s

Ty Herndon is certainly not letting the surge of “bro-country” songs stop him from making the music that speaks to him!  The now openly gay country artist was a guest at the Family Equality Council’s Los Angeles Awards Dinner on Saturday, and he gave everyone a proud answer about his upcoming music.

He explained:

“I may be the first man in country music to sing a love song to another man. And I’m very proud to do that. I’m not changing the ‘he’s for ‘she’s. It’s straight on who I love. Love is universal. I’m keeping it unisex but there are a few songs that I’ve written that I wrote about my own life. That’s the one thing about country music — you got to sing what you know.”

The 51 year old singer has been in a relationship with his partner, Matt Collum, for six years.  The couple made their first public appearance together in December 2014.

Ty will start recording his next album this month, and we are excited to hear new music from him.

Carrie Underwood Joins #EndItMovement

Carrie Underwood and her husband Mike Fisher are sharing their support of the End It Movement, a coalition intended to end modern day slavery.

No stranger to good causes including animal rights movements, Carrie and her husband participated in Shine a Light on Slavery Day on Friday, Feb. 27. Furthermore, the pair displayed their support by drawing a red “X” on their hands and taking a photo. Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee revealed the photo on Twitter.

“Grateful to have @carrieunderwood and @mikefisher1212 on board in support of the #EndSlaveryAct. #EndItMovement,” the Senator wrote on Twitter.

The website for the movement points out that an estimated 27 million people remain enslaved around the world today. Despite slavery being outlawed in every country around the world, the oppression remains in forms such as bonded or forced labor and human trafficking for purposes of domestic servitude, child begging or the removal of their organs. Slavery is the second leading form of organized crime, following only counterfeit goods. The global problem generates over $150 billion each year.

“It’s up to each of us to tell our world that slavery still exists,” the End It Movement encourages online. “Awareness is doing the work. Our amazing Coalition Partners are doing the work, on the ground, every day, to bring freedom to the 27 million.”

The End It Movement uses all money raised toward programs in red-light districts, mines, factories, street corners and private homes. Moreover, the organization works with special investigators, local law enforcement, FBI and other government agencies to rescue men, women and children from slavery.
