Blake Shelton is not only the most interesting man in country music, he’s also the voice behind the No. 1 album in America. His new album, Red River Blue, debuted atop the Soundscan Top Current Albums chart, Soundscan Top Country Albums chart, iTunes Overall Albums Chart and iTunes Country Albums Chart this week, selling more than 116,000 copies. The album’s first single, “Honey Bee,” is the fastest selling digital platinum single for a male country solo artist.
Blake of course took to his Twitter account to express his gratitude for his fans. “Well it may not come as a surprise but I’m floating around on Lake Texoma fishing to celebrate this special #1 over all album..” he tweeted. ”But I wanted to hop on here and say thank you all for this incredible day and unmatched support new and old!!!!! I love y’all… Really,” he added moments afterward.
