Blake Shelton is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the song that first took him to number one on the country charts, “Austin” by releasing a limited edition “Austin” vinyl on April 16 – the exact date of the single’s release twenty years ago.

Blake said, “I remember the first time I heard ‘Austin’ on the radio. I was driving on 440, and I kept looking to both sides trying to see if other drivers were singing along! At that time, the station had a slogan about how they played new artists and legends, and the DJ said something like, ‘Who knows… maybe this artist will become one of the legends.’ This song started it all for me. I couldn’t be prouder to celebrate its 20th anniversary.”

Shelton posted to Twitter, “Excited to celebrate 20 years of #Austin with a commemorative 20th Anniversary 7” vinyl! Pre-order yours starting April 16th!”
