Who Is The Most-Played Country Artist of 2017?

Blake Shelton is celebrating a big 2017.

The country star is officially the most-played country artist of the year, topping both Billboard’s and Country Aircheck’s year-end airplay charts.

With the release of three singles in 2017—“A Guy With A Girl,” “Every Time I Hear That Song” and “I’ll Name The Dogs”—The Voice coach has also just re-signed for “more incredible years” of making music with his longtime record label home Warner Music Nashville.

“I remember my first trip to Nashville in 1994,” Blake says. “I drove down Music Row and don’t know why, but when I passed the Warner Bros. building I said, ‘That’s the label I want to be on!’ Now, all these years later, I’m proud to have spent my entire recording career with such a great company.”

Blake also makes history as the first artist in Country Aircheck/Mediabase history to have six songs chart simultaneously.

Blake kicks off his headlining Country Music Freaks Tour with Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce and special guest Trace Adkins in early 2018.
