About Blake Shelton
Blake Shelton hosts 'SNL'
Not many country stars can say they've hosted "Saturday Night Live," but Blake Shelton can. In fact, he joined a list that includes only Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Dolly Parton and Taylor Swift as those who have pulled double duty as both host and guest on the same program.
Shelton hosted the live telecast of 'SNL' on January 24, 2015 from NBC's famous Studio H-8, winning the crowd over with his opening monologue and even making it through a critically panned intentionally bad country song titled "The Wishing Boot." He saved his best performance of the night for his renditions of "Neon Light" and "Boys 'Round Here," but his acting was nothing to shake a stick at. In fact, just days after showing off his acting skills it was reported that Shelton will costar in an upcoming Adam Sandler movie.
Shelton will reportedly play Arizona sheriff Wyatt Earp in the Western spoof "Ridiculous 6," the first of four original movies that Sandler is producing for Netflix.
On the music front, Shelton's ninth studio album, "Bringing Back the Sunshine," bowed back on September 30, 2014. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's all genre Top 200 and Top Country albums charts with first week sales of over 100,000 in the United States. The lead single, "Neon Light," went to to the top of the US Country Airplay chart, and the follow-up "Lonely Tonight," featuring Ashley Monroe, was inside the Top 10 as of this writing.
Shelton will resume touring next month, with a kickoff at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on March 19.
Blake Shelton takes his 'Medicine'
Blake Shelton wants to make sure you take your medicine. Be forewarned though, it doesn't really lean too country.
Shelton teams up with fellow "The Voice" judge Shakira on a new song called "Medicine," which debuted on March 25 as part of the latter's self-titled album. And while Shakira is well-known for her dominance in the pop/dance and Latin arenas, it's hard to call her stretch here a "crossover" into a new genre. Yes, the track is penned by Hillary Lindsey and Mark Wright, but we're not quite sure it should get the 'country' stamp otherwise.
New duet partners aren't the only thing Blake has on his mind these days. He's currently up and running with season 6 of "The Voice," recently took his fourth spin on the RodeoHouston stage (playing to more than 75,000 fans), and is getting set to once again cost the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards with fellow crooner Luke Bryan on April 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
It was also recently announced that Shelton (along with the likes of wife Miranda Lambert, as well as Rascal Flatts, Jason Alden, Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Eric Church, and so many more) will play at LP Field as part of the 2014 CMA Music Festival. The event will run Thursday through Sunday, June 5-8, in downtown Nashville. Shelton, along with the other artists announced, is certainly no stranger to the festival, having performed on the LP Field Stage in past years.
Blake Shelton finds his 'Voice' (Updated February 6, 2013)
If it's possible to capture a moment in time – or in this case, roughly 3 calendar years – and live them over and over again, Blake Shelton would probably love that opportunity. The last 1,095 days (2010- and 2012, specifically) have been the best of Shelton's life, both personally and professionally. From his marriage to fellow country superstar Miranda Lambert to a plethora of Number One songs and accolades, Shelton is riding high not just on the country music scene, but as an international sensation.
Following the success of the duet "Hillbilly Bone" with Trace Adkins in early 2010, Shelton carried that momentum into his own music. He released "All About Tonight" (a radio-friendly party anthem) as part of an EP in August, watched it climb to the top of the charts, then officially joined the Grand Ole Opry the following month. The icing on the cake was his remake of the title track for "Footloose" in October, becoming a judge/coach on the NBC television series "The Voice," then capturing the Male Vocalist of the Year at the 44th annual Country Music Association (CMA) awards in November.
Shelton released his sixth studio album, "Red River Blue," in the summer of 2011. Every single released from the album went to No. 1, starting with "Honey Bee" and ending with "Over." The latter was his seventh consecutive No. 1 overall and the 12th of his career. The lucky streak carried over onto "The Voice," where the winners of seasons 2 and 3 of the hit show came from Shelton's team. Finally, in February 2012, he took the stage with his wife at Super Bowl XLVI to sing "America the Beautiful."
At 12:02 on New Year's Day 2013, Shelton premiered a new single called "Sure Be Cool If You Did," which was officially released for digital download a week later. A new album will drop in the spring (release date to-be-determined) and he'll hit the road for the "Ten Times Crazier" tour beginning July 19 in Virginia Beach, Va. Joining him on the road will be Easton Corbin and Jana Kramer.
