Blake Shelton serves as a coach on NBC's four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series "The Voice."
Shelton returns for his 23rd and final season with the incredible accomplishment of being the coach for nine champions over the course of the series, including milestone Season 22 winner Bryce Leatherwood.
Shelton's other winners are Chloe Kohanski, Sundance Head, Craig Wayne Boyd, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope, Jermaine Paul, Todd Tilghman and Cam Anthony.
Shelton has a championship career of his own and is still setting the mark in country music. His current single, "No Body," is quickly climbing the country 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 his wife Gwen Stefani. It's their second No. 1 single together.
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 "The Voice" host Carson Daly recently teamed up to executive produce and star in new celebrity game show "Barmageddon" for USA Network.
Shelton is kicking off his Back to the Honky Tonk Tour on February 16 in Lincoln, Nebraska. The tour also features reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, CMA Female Vocalist of the Year and Grammy winner Carly Pearce plus newcomer Jackson Dean, who recently celebrated his first No. 1 single.
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 Orlando, Florida, and they recently broke ground on a new venue in Las Vegas. Many of his "The Voice" contestants perform on the stages of Ole Red on a regular basis.
