Blake Shelton Announces Greatest Hits Album
Blake Shelton recently scored his 20th No. 1 hit, and he’s celebrating by releasing a greatest hits collection that will span his entire career.
The singer-songwriter and coach of The Voice will release Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits in October, chronicling a career that has now stretched into nearly 15 years of consistent hits, including a record-breaking 15 consecutive No. 1 singles that began with “Hillbilly Bone” in March of 2010.
The collection includes his first-ever No. 1 hit, “Austin,” as well as more recent hits like “My Eyes” and “Lonely Tonight,” both of which are from last year. The collection also includes Shelton’s current single, “Gonna,” as a bonus track. If that song keeps Shelton’s chart-topping streak alive, then the collection will actually feature 21 No. 1 hits.
Reloaded: 20 #1 Hits is set for release on Oct. 23, but Shelton is already back to work on the set of The Voice, which is set to premiere its new season on Sept. 21. The entertainer is taking a break from touring after a busy summer that also saw him make headlines when the news of his divorce from Miranda Lambert broke, but he is working on new music; he recently got together with Jon Randall and Jessi Alexander, who co-wrote “Drink on It,” for a new track that will probably find its way onto his next full-length album of new songs. Shelton recently called the track “a song so important to me I can’t believe it.”
Shelton also joined Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, the Band Perry and Brett Eldredge at the Opry in Nashville on Aug. 31 to shoot the live concert sequences for American Saturday Night: Live From the Grand Ole Opry, which celebrates the 90th anniversary of the Opry.
