Blake Shelton Makes History as the First Country Artist to Hit #1 on the Billboard Artist 100

BlakeShelton

After debuting at #1 on The Billboard 200 Album Chart last week with his new album Bringing Back the Sunshine Blake Shelton makes history as the first country music artist to hit #1 on the Billboard Artist 100. The chart, which factors in album and digital song sales, plus radio airplay, saw Blake rise from #19 to #1. “Neon Light,” the first single from the new album is Top 5 and climbing.

The four-time and reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year has 3 nominations for the upcoming CMA Awards including Entertainer of the Year, which he won in 2012, Male Vocalist and Single of the Year for “Mine Would Be You.”

He wrapped his sold-out Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014 — including performances at NYC’s Madison Square Garden as well, Chicago’s Wrigley Field Stadium playing to a capacity crowd of over 40,000 fans as only the fourth country artist to have ever played the iconic 100 year-old ball park and LA’s historic Hollywood Bowl. Celebrating thirteen years since his first single “Austin” hit the top of the country radio charts, Shelton holds 17 No. 1 singles to his credit, recently breaking his own record for most consecutive No. 1’s at country radio. With 12 singles, including five from his last album alone, Shelton has the most No. 1’s in a row on the country radio charts by any artist.
Joining the ranks of the Grand Ole Opry as a member since 2010, Shelton has earned a host of awards and nominations throughout his career, including three new CMA Award nominations this year for Entertainer and Male Vocalist of the Year, along with Song of the Year for “Mine Would Be You.” Shelton will return as a coach for his seventh season of NBC’s Emmy winning reality competition series, The Voice, which premiered September 22nd.

Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor to Cross Genres at the CMA Awards

Ariana GrandeMeghan Trainor

“The 48th Annual CMA Awards” will present genre-crossing duet performances by Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor who will perform with Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert respectively. “Pretty Little Liars” actress and DMG Nashville recording artist Lucy Hale will be joining the evening as a presenter live, Wednesday, Nov. 5 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on the ABC Television Network.

Hosted for the seventh consecutive year by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, Country Music’s Biggest Night™ will also feature superstar performances by Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Kacey Musgraves, Paisley, Blake Shelton, The Band Perry, Underwood, and Keith Urban.

Grande will be joining two-time CMA Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town for an on-air collaboration. Within less than a year, Grande captured No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 twice—first with her Republic Records debut Yours Truly and also with its 2014 follow-up My Everything.

Trainor will team up with nine-time nominee and reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Lambert. This dynamic duo’s performance of Trainor’s “All About That Bass” is sure to be a must see moment. Singer/songwriter Trainor has written songs for such stars as Rascal Flatts before skyrocketing to success with her international hit “All About That Bass,” which has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the past six weeks.

While Hale made her mark early on as an actress, best known for her role on the hit ABC Family drama “Pretty Little Liars,” music was always her first love. The Memphis born and bred singer’s debut album, Road Between, was released by DMG Nashville on June 3 and features her brand new single, “Lie A Little Better.” Hale will also be performing on “CMA Country Christmas,” a two-hour special airing Monday, Dec. 1 (8:00-10:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Winners of “The 48th Annual CMA Awards” will be determined in a final round of voting by eligible voting members of the Country Music Association. CMA Awards balloting is officiated by the international accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche LLP. Voting for the CMA Awards final ballot ends Monday, Oct. 27 (5:00 PM/CT).

“The 48th Annual CMA Awards” is a production of the Country Music Association. Robert Deaton is the Executive Producer, Paul Miller is the Director, and David Wild is the writer. The special will be shot in high definition and broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC’s selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound.
