Blake is also featured on the cover of Men’s Journal‘s current issue on stands now.
“I’m excited to be on stage with my band playing some of our new songs off Based On A True Story… and also getting to play some older hits that haven’t been in our set over recent years, ” said Blake Shelton. “Everyone on that stage is there because they love to perform and want to give everything we have to our fans who came to hear us play. I love my band — they are the best out there and I wouldn’t want to perform with anyone else.”
Blake Shelton is CMA Awards’ reigning Entertainer of the Year and three-peat Male Vocalist of the Year. With nine consecutive No. 1 singles (fourteen overall) Blake is one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers” (The New York Times). His infectious multi-week No.1 hit, “Honey Bee” still holds the record for the fastest-selling digital Platinum single for a male country solo artist and just off the heels of his No. 1 smash hit “Boys ‘Round Here,” the follow up single “Mine Would Be You” is impacting radio now. “To A Purist Mr. Shelton is a savvy student of tradition. To A Would-be outlaw he’s forever adding a wink. He’s a star who is only as explicit as you want him to be,” Jon Caramanica, The New York Times. Blake Shelton’s passion for country music and his commitment to mentoring his teammates from The Voice make him an incredible ambassador for country music.
