Blake Shelton serves as a coach on NBC's four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice."
Shelton returns for the 21st 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. He has 28 No. 1 country singles and earned his latest with the chart-topping "Happy Anywhere," which features multi-season "The Voice" coach, rock star and his wife, Gwen Stefani. It's their second consecutive No. 1 single and is included on his latest album, "Body Language."
With 52 million singles and 13 million albums sold, Shelton has received numerous awards, including six ACMs, three AMAs, 10 CMAs, 11 CMTs and six People’s Choice, among many others. He is currently on his highly anticipated Friends and Heroes 2021 tour with special guest Lindsay Ell and special appearances by Martina McBride, Tracy Byrd and Trace Adkins.
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 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 University 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, Tennessee; Gatlinburg, Tennessee; and most recently, Orlando, Florida. Many of his "The Voice" contestants perform on the stages of Ole Red on a regular basis.
