Blake Shelton Entertains Sold-Out Crowd At The Ryman

WARNER BROS./NASHVILLE artist BLAKE SHELTON played to a sold-out crowd at the historic RYMAN AUDITORIUM in NASHVILLE last night (3/18).
Country newcomer BRENT ELDRIDGE kicked off the show with a 20-minute set of songs. After a brief intermission between BRENT and BLAKE's sets was a "radio show" that played over the speakers, featuring CLEAR CHANNEL Country WSIX/NASHVILLE morning personality GERRY HOUSE as a host named "LES."
LES was trying to conduct a fake phone interview with BLAKE, mistaking him for someone named BRAD and setting rules for the phone chat. The curtain then opened, as BLAKE told LES, "I am BLAKE SHELTON and you can kiss my ass!"
SHELTON performed fan favorites and new songs from his recently-released "six pack" album, "Hillbilly Bone," including the #1 title track. SHOW DOG-UNIVERSAL MUSIC artist TRACE ADKINS surprised the crowd by joining SHELTON on stage for their duet of "Hillbilly Bone." BLAKE also sang his next single, "It's All About Tonight," which will be featured on his next release.
