2017 is the year for Blake Shelton’s country music. This success came after the Oklahoman country music star’s several hits were kept played on air last year. That, eventually, made him land No. 1 on both the ‘Top Overall Artists’ and ‘Top Male Artists’ lists ending 2017 with a bang. The lists, which were based on Mediabase’s 2017 summary report compilation, covered the country music genre. Blake’s several hit songs that made his 2017 a very successful year include “I’ll Name the Dogs,” “Guy With a Girl,” and “Every Time I Hear That Song.”  According to Blake’s Instagram post, his first track became No. 1  song at the radio on the third week of December last year.
