Blake Shelton [2]is celebrating his eleventh No. 1 single. “Drink On It,” is his sixth straight No. 1 hit and comes just after Blake was named Male Vocalist of the Year during the ACM Awards [3]. He gave credit to his team at Warner Bros., country radio and his fans for making it happen.

“I really couldn’t be happier about this one y’all,” Blake said. “Bob Reeves and the WMN team, you beat the odds and won the game, and country radio, you are my brothers and sisters. I love you. Thanks so much for always supporting my country ass. Now, let’s Drink On It!”

Blake is so thrilled with the No. 1 that he took to his popular Twitter [4] account to solicit congratulations from some of his famous friends like Alison Sweeney, Adam Levine, Elliot Sadler, Jerrod Niemann [5] and his favorite red head, Reba [6]. “@reba [7] hey red…. Aren’t you gonna congratulate me?!!!” Blake tweeted.

Reba wasn’t the only female country star he was trying to get a response from. He also hit up his wife Miranda Lambert [8]. “@Miranda_Lambert [9] hey boss… Aren’t you gonna congratulate me?!!!” he wrote. Miranda responded “on having a hot wife? Yea congrats.”

Despite all the well wishes and congratulatory tweets coming in from fans and famous friends alike, there was one tweet Blake had to stop the presses for. “RT: ‘@merlehaggard [10]: Blake congratulations on your number one!!!’ Everybody stop!! Hats off.. Moment of silence.. Merle Haggard [11] just tweeted me!!” Blake wrote, re-tweeting Merle’s congratulations.

Blake recently wrapped his Well Lit & Amplified Tour. He is currently serving as one of the coaches on NBC’s The Voice alongside Adam Levine, Christina Aguilera, and CeeLo Green.
