Blake Shelton likely asked himself, why have one No. 1 party when you can have two? Friday afternoon (June 7) at the LP Field Stadium Club in Nashville, Blake did just that as he toasted the success of two of his recent No. 1s, "Over" and "Sure Be Cool If You Did." Joining Blake at the two-for-one bash were "Sure Be Cool If You Did" writers Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins and Jimmy Robbins along with one of the "Over" co-writers, Paul Jenkins.

The party also included a surprise appearance. Jimmy Robbins, who was celebrating his first No. 1 hit, was in the middle of his remarks when he called out to a friend, "Keith." At that, Keith Urban walked to the stage and hugged Jimmy as a multitude of cameras captured the moment. As the ceremony continued, Blake took the stage and thanked the writers and his record label for their support of his red-hot career.

Afterward, Blake met with reporters and talked about his ever-evolving music. His two recent No. 1s along with his current single, the fun-loving "Boys 'Round Here," are as diverse a selection as an artist could have, but Blake is fine with that. "As soon as people think they have me figured out musically, they realize they don't," Blake said. "I used to think that I'd figure out what my sound is gonna be, and now looking back, I couldn't be further from that. But that makes me happy. I like reinventing myself."

And fans love Blake's many different sides. Congratulations to Blake and all the writers on their success!
