Blake Shelton returns to "The Voice" for the 14th season with the incredible accomplishment of being the coach for six champions over the course of the series, including Season 13 winner Chloe Kohanski.
Shelton's other winners are Sundance Head, Craig Wayne Boyd, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope and Jermaine Paul.
Shelton kicks off the season with wins of his own. Shelton was named 2017's Top Country Artist at the Billboard Music Awards in May and ended the year as Billboard's most played country artist of 2017. He's also the current People's Choice Award winner for Favorite Male Country Artist, and the first country artist ever to win the all-genre Favorite Album category. He's a five-time CMA Male Vocalist of the Year winner.
His most recent album, "Texoma Shore," was his sixth record to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and marked his 11th all-genre Top 10. "I'll Name the Dogs," the first single from the album, became Shelton's 25th #1 single, a streak that began in 2001 with "Austin," from his debut album. In February he will kick off his "Country Music Freaks" Tour that include hitmakers Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce and Trace Adkins, his longtime friend and duet partner on the #1 song, "Hillbilly Bone."
Shelton was born, raised and lives in Oklahoma, where he has strong community ties. 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 and others, the telethon raised more than $6 million for United Way of Central Oklahoma. He recently 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 Properties, Shelton is opening an entertainment-themed restaurant and bar called Ole Red. The first location opened in 2017 in his hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma, with the Nashville location to open in late spring of this year.
