NASHVILLE, TN (Nov. 21, 2016) – Country music superstar and Platinum-selling recording artist Blake Shelton takes a song from his current album <em>If I’m Honest</em> to bill his 2017 “Doing It To Country Songs” tour. Shelton and special guest RaeLynn, who just this evening announced the tour in a “Newlyweds” style game on Facebook Live (<a href=”https://www.facebook.com/blakeshelton/videos/10154238295069895/”>https://www.facebook.com/blakeshelton/videos/10154238295069895/</a>) will kick it off in Bakersfield, CA on February 16, 2017 (additional dates below).
“Performing for an audience is what I love most – and if you’re coming to see me, you’re coming to hear country music, because that’s what I do,” said Shelton. “So get ready as we’re going to be ‘Doin’ It To Country Songs’ all night long!”
The tour follows the 2016 release of Shelton’s 10<sup>th</sup> studio album, <em>If I’m Honest</em>, which was not only the biggest selling album in the week of its release, but also the best-selling country album released this year. With four weeks atop the Billboard Country albums chart, the 15-track project features the tour’s namesake along with Shelton’s latest No. 1 smash hit “Came Here To Forget” and his current Top 15 and climbing single “A Guy With A Girl.”
Opening the tour is Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville recording artist RaeLynn, whose current single “Love Triangle” is the powerful first track from her forthcoming debut album <em>WildHorse</em>. She was recently selected as a CMT <em>Next Women of Country </em>honoree and a 2017 “Country Artist to Watch” by Pandora Radio.
