Blake Shelton Scores 25th No. 1 Hit With “I’ll Name The Dogs”


Blake Shelton certainly has a way of closing out a year. The award winning singer is clocking out of 2017 with his 25th consecutive No. 1 hit, “I’ll Name the Dogs.”

“What a great way to end 2017 with ‘I’ll Name The Dogs’ at No. 1!” said Blake. “As I look back over another incredible year, I know that the success has been because of the love and support from my fans. This song and several others on Texoma Shore are little more throwback, traditional country. They take me back to a time when I was growing up in Oklahoma, when things were a little less complicated. Thank you to my fans for embracing my music both new and old – and for all you do for my family and me. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family!”

“I’ll Name the Dogs,” the lead track from Blake’s 10th studio album, Texoma Shore, follows his previous two No. 1 hits, “Every Time I Hear That Song,” and “A Guy With a Girl,” from his album If I’m Honest. Continuing his good fortune, Blake was also crowned People’s Sexiest Man Alive in November, creating all sorts of headlines for the Oklahoma native.

After spending Christmas with girlfriend Gwen Stefani, the 41-year-old will be back on the road in 2018 for his headlining Country Music Freaks Tour alongside Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce and special guest Trace Adkins.

It remains to be seen if Blake can outdo himself in 2018.
