Blake Shelton returns to "The Voice" for the 20th season with the incredible accomplishment of being the coach for seven champions over the course of the series, including Season 18 winner Todd Tilghman.
Shelton's other winners are Chloe Kohanski, Sundance Head, Craig Wayne Boyd, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope and Jermaine Paul.
Shelton has a championship career of his own and is still setting the mark in country music. Shelton, who has 28 No. 1 country singles, earned his latest at the end of last year with the chart-topping song "Happy Anywhere," which features his fellow Voice coach and fiancée Gwen Stefani. It follows their first No. 1 country single together, "Nobody But You," which they debuted on the 2020 Grammy Awards telecast. Shelton rounded out the year with an American Music Award for Favorite Album: Country for his hit-packed collection Fully Loaded: God's Country.
Shelton was born, 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, Usher, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, among others, 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 University hospital for children with blood cancer and blood disorders.
In association with Ryman Hospitality, 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, Gatlinburg, Tennessee and most recently in Orlando, Florida. Many of his "Voice" contestants perform on the stages of Ole Red on a regular basis.
