TOP SPOT: Just over two months of 2021 belong to Luke Combs. That’s how long his songs have claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard country airplay chart. First with “Better Together” back in January and February, and now here in June and July “Forever After All” is spending its sixth week at No. 1! Three other artists have had multiple weeks at No. 1, but even adding them all together, they still don’t equal the amount of weeks Luke has claimed the top spot on the Billboard country airplay chart in 2021.

Blake Shelton’s Friends And Heroes 2021 tour features Martina McBride, Tracy Byrd and Trace Adkins along with very special guest Lindsay Ell. One of the songs that fans will be looking forward to seeing Blake perform live is his Top 10 hit “Minimum Wage.”
