Blake Shelton is headlining two major events. It will be a busy summer for the country musician. Last weekend, he announced that he’s returning for Season 22 of The Voice. He will be joined by his wife Gwen Stefani, John Legend, and newcomer Camila Cabello.
As Country Music Alley previously reported, Kelly Clarkson fans were upset that she’s not returning to the singing competition. She wants to take a break this summer to spend more time with her kids. On the flip side, Blake plans to perform his new music, including his hit song “Come Back as a Country Boy.” Read on for more details.

Blake Shelton will take on a major role for the NASCAR All-Star Race at the Texas Motor Speedway. Previously, NASCAR announced that he is their official Grand Marshal. The singer also shared the exciting news on Instagram. Blake also revealed that he will speak with former NASCAR star and friend Clint Bowyer beforehand on FS1.
