The “Friends In Low Places” singer has many accolades under his belt. He has earned nine No. 1 albums on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, the most of any country artist in history. He has also had 17 No. 1 hits and was the first artist to ever appear on the Billboard Hot Country songs chart in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, and ’20s.
