This year, Strait’s Troubadour was named “Best Country Album” during the 51st Annual Grammy Awards and in April he received the Academy of Country Music’s ‘Artist of the Decade’ award in recognition of his record-breaking career.
With a career that spans more than 25 years, Strait holds the record for the most Number One hits on the country radio charts with a total of 57. He has sold more than 67 million records, garnering him 32 different platinum or multi-platinum albums resulting in the most RIAA platinum certification in country music and the third in all genres, behind The Beatles and Elvis Presley.
Sugarland exploded onto the music scene in ’04 with Twice The Speed Of Life (“Baby Girl” and “Something More”). Enjoy the Ride (No 1 hits “Want To”, “Settlin'” and “Stay”) quickly followed in ’06. Their third studio album Love On The Inside (“It Happens”, “Love” and No 1’s “All I Want To Do” and “Already Gone”) was released July ’08 and skyrocketed them to superstardom, drawing fans from all genres and critics abroad.
With five No 1 singles, ten No 1 videos and over 2.5 million albums sold, Blake Shelton is keeping the fires raging with his latest release, Startin’ Fires. Startin’ Fires has already spawned the multi-week No 1 single, “She Wouldn’t Be Gone,” the follow-up to his multi-week No 1 single “Home” from Pure BS Deluxe. His current single, “I’ll Just Hold On” is rapidly climbing up the charts. NBC ‘s Clash of the Choirs and his announcement in December 2008 as one of People Magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive” have helped raise his profile across the board over the last year.
Julianne Hough recently topped both the country and Top 200 charts with her self-titled debut album, as well as with the infectious debut single “That Song In My Head.” Her first holiday album, The Julianne Hough Holiday Collection, was a top-selling Christmas release for Target stores and she recently took home the 2009 ACM award for New Artist of the Year.
