Blake Shelton’s “My Eyes” Goes #1 at Country Radio, Top 40 on Hot 100

“My Eyes,” the fifth single from Blake Shelton’s award-winning album “Based on a True Story,” is enjoying an incredible week.

On Wednesday, the song reached #1 on Mediabase’s rolling country airplay chart. The song, which features vocals from Gwen Sebastian, dethroned Justin Moore’s “Lettin’ the Night Roll” to rank as the format’s most-played song.

Per Thursday’s edition of the chart, it had garnered 7,465 spins and 57.58 million impressions over the seven days ending June 25.

In addition to rising to #1 at country radio, the song also entered the Top 40 on Billboard’s Hot 100. The song appears at #39 on the chart published Thursday and dated July 5.

“My Eyes” becomes Blake Shelton’s thirteenth Top 40 (including his and wife Miranda Lambert’s version of “Jingle Bell Rock”). It is his fifth consecutive song to enter that portion of the Hot 100.
