No. 82: Blake Shelton, ‘She Wouldn’t Be Gone’ – Top 100 Country Songs
After a pair of under-performing singles from his 2007 ‘Pure B.S.’ album, Blake Shelton resurrected his superstar status with ‘She Wouldn’t Be Gone.’ The song gave the singer a second-consecutive No. 1 song in the 2008 calendar year — a first in the Oklahoma native’s lengthy career.
Written by Jennifer Adan and Corey Batten, our pick for No. 82 on our Top 100 Country Songs list landed at No. 35 on the Billboard’s 2009 year-end chart. Since 2008, Shelton has snagged an impressive six consecutive chart-topping singles, making the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year one of the hottest radio acts in recent years.
