Keith Urban Earns 22nd No. 1 Hit With ‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’
Keith Urban's 2017 is off to a very good start. The singer has topped the charts again with his latest single, "Blue Ain't Your Color," but that's only the beginning of the song's success.
The song marks his fourth consecutive No. 1 hit off his latest album, Ripcord, following the success of “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16,” “Wasted Time” and “Break on Me.” It is also his 22nd single to reach No. 1.
According to Billboard, it's only the third time in chart history that a single has topped all four of Billboard's country songs charts at once. “Blue Ain’t Your Color” reached No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs, Country Airplay, Country Digital Song Sales and Country Streaming Songs charts dated Jan. 21.
“Keith invents and reinvents himself like few others,” Universal Music Group
Nashville Chairman and CEO Mike Dungan tells Billboard. “‘Blue Ain’t Your Color’ is simply the latest exclamation point in his monumental career.”

Previous songs that have reached No. 1 on all four charts include Jason Aldean’s “Burnin’ It Down” and Luke Bryan's “Play It Again,” both in 2014.
“Blue Ain’t Your Color” is the fourth single from Ripcord. It's a song that Urban says immediately struck him the first time he heard it.
“I couldn’t even label what it was, what style it was,” he admits (quote via Sounds Like Nashville). “It’s got a bit of soul, it’s got a bit of blues, it’s got a bit of country, it’s got just a big mix of all good things. Lyrically, it’s just an incredible song, incredible song. I was so hoping I could do the song justice when we got in the studio.”
