Blake Shelton serves as a coach on NBC's four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice."
Shelton returns for the 22nd season with the incredible accomplishment of being the coach for eight champions over the course of the series, including milestone Season 20 winner Cam Anthony.
Shelton's other winners are Chloe Kohanski, Sundance Head, Craig Wayne Boyd, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope, Jermaine Paul and Todd Tilghman.
Shelton has a championship career of his own and is still setting the mark in country music. His new single, "No Body," quickly climbed the charts. Over the span of his career, Shelton has earned 28 No. 1 country singles, including the chart-topping song "Happy Anywhere," which features multi-season "The Voice" coach, rock star and wife Gwen Stefani. It's their second consecutive No. 1 single.
With 52 million singles and 13 million albums sold and nearly 11 billion global streams, Shelton has received numerous awards, including six ACMs, three AMAs, 10 CMAs, 11 CMTs and six People's Choice Awards, among many others. He and "Voice" colleague Carson Daly recently announced they have teamed to executive produce and star in new celebrity game show "Barmageddon" to air on USA Network. This spring Shelton will return to the road with his Back to the Honky Tonk Tour, which kicks off February 16 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Shelton was born and raised, and currently lives, in Oklahoma, where he has strong community ties. He recently donated $200,000 to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. In response to the devastating tornadoes of 2013, Shelton and NBC teamed up on the telethon "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert." With the help of Reba McEntire, Usher, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, the telethon raised more than $6 million for United Way of Central Oklahoma. He has donated $500,000 to the Jimmy Everest Center, an Oklahoma hospital for children with blood cancer and blood disorders.
In association with Ryman Hospitality Properties, the Grand Ole Opry member has opened a string of entertainment-themed restaurants and bars called Ole Red. The first venue opened in 2017 in his hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. He now has venues in Nashville and Gatlinburg, Tennessee; Orlando, Florida; and Las Vegas, Nevada, opening in 2023. Many of his "Voice" contestants perform on the stages of Ole Red on a regular basis.
