Blake Shelton ended last week by rocking three shows during Opry All-Star Weekend and is off to a good start this week with exciting news! He has just been added as the final musician coach on NBC’s new musical competition show, “The Voice,” joining Cee-Lo Green, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine. Paul Telegdy, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming, NBC and Universal Media Studios said about the Opry’s newest member, “We couldn’t have a panel that represented the hottest American music without a strong country presence, and Blake is at the top of his
game right now. Not only is he incredibly charismatic, but his passion for collaborating with and bringing the best out of other talented artists makes him the perfect choice to round out this ‘Dream Team’ of musician coaches.”
Blake shares his excitement, “I’m not sure ‘The Voice’ knows what they signed on for by bringing me on the show. I know this for sure; Christina, Cee Lo, Adam and I are going to have a blast and I am extremely excited to be part of a show that recognizes true vocal talent.”
The show will premiere on NBC Tuesday, April 26 at 9/8 CST and is to be hosted by Carson Daly.
