Blake Shelton, one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers” (The New York Times), was honored this morning with FOUR CMA nominations in the categories of Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year (“Hillbilly Bone”), Musical Event of the Year (“Hillbilly Bone” featuring Trace Adkins) and Music Video of the Year (“Hillbilly Bone” featuring Trace Adkins).
Shelton’s single, “All About Tonight” is currently reigning in its third week at No. 1 on the Billboard and Country Aircheck (Mediabase) charts. “All About Tonight,” produced by Scott Hendricks, is the title track off his latest SIX PAK which debuted at No. 1 on the SoundScan Top Country Albums chart and No. 6 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart. Shelton is theonly solo male country artist – one of three artists overall – to log more than one chart-topper so far this year on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs with his singles “Hillbilly Bone” and “All About Tonight.” The country star has not had a single peak outside the Top Ten since 2007.
