Blake Shelton couldn’t be more excited, as he has scored his 7th consecutive #1 hit single with “Over.” There are many catchy tunes on his latest album Red River Blue, but the singer admits this song immediately caught his ear. “That’s one of those that just—the energy and the melody had me. And it’s one of those lyrics that when you listen to it, you go, ‘Man, wait a minute, what?’ cause there’s lines in there about burning the world down and you could have a different melody, and it would be like a threat, that song …you know?” “Over” is Blake’s 12th career #1. With another #1 hit in his back pocket, Blake is preparing for the next few busy months, as the third season of NBC’s The Voice is around the corner, and his Christmas album is just months away.
