Blake Shelton scored his 27th No. 1 single as his duet with girlfriend Gwen Stefani, “Nobody But You,” ascended to No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart this week.

Blake’s 27th No. 1 single on the Billboard Country Airplay chart puts him into third place on the all-time list, following Kenny Chesney (30) and Tim McGraw (29). Blake’s latest chart-topper breaks the third-place tie he held with Alan Jackson (26) and George Strait (26).

Penned by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, “Nobody But You” is one of four new tracks on Blake’s 2019 album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country.I

“I knew the moment I heard this song that I wanted to record it,” says Blake. “Shane McAnally, Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, you wrote a perfect song in which every lyric has meaning in my life, and I thank you. Another thanks goes to the fans who continue to listen—and I know there are a lot of distractions these days—one day soon we can all celebrate music together again. And finally, thanks to Gwen for joining me and making this one of the most special songs I’ve recorded. Congratulations on your first number one country single!”
