His current single "Big Blue Note" was the highest debut for a new label in history. The set also contains the Hot Country Songs No. 1 hit "As Good As I Once Was," which became Keith's 15th No. 1 country single. To date, Keith has achieved 11 top-10 country albums � four of which reached No. 1. Keith has sold over 25 million albums in the U.S. to date.
