BLAKE SHELTON SET TO PERFORM HIT SINGLE ‘I’LL NAME THE DOGS’ ON THE TUESDAY, NOV. 28 LIVE TELECAST OF ‘THE VOICE’
Song Is From Shelton’s #1 Country Album “Texoma Shore” as Four-Time Emmy Award-Winning Series Continues to Pare Down Artists
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Nov. 22, 2017 — Country music superstar and five-time winning coach Blake Shelton is set to perform his hit single “I’ll Name the Dogs” on the Tuesday, Nov. 28 (8-9 p.m.) live telecast of NBC’s four-time Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice.”
Shelton’s single debuted Sept. 8 and quickly rose to the top of the charts, reaching the Top 20 just two weeks after its premiere. It was the #1 trending video on YouTube from the day of release throughout its first weekend, resulting in Shelton’s biggest video launch ever.
“I’ll Name the Dogs” is the lead single off his newest album “Texoma Shore,” a very personal reflection of his love for Oklahoma and country music. “Texoma Shore” debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart netting Shelton six consecutive #1 albums. Shelton is wrapping 2017 with numerous awards including Top Country Artist at the Billboard Music Awards in May. Shelton also became the first country artist ever to win the all-genre Favorite Album category at the People’s Choice Awards, along with the title for Favorite Male Country Artist.
“Texoma Shore” brings the five-time consecutive CMA Male Vocalist of the Year full circle as it chronicles the present and finds Shelton reaching back as well. Shelton recorded the project in his home studio on the shores of Lake Texoma, which lies on the Texas-Oklahoma border and is synonymous with much of his Oklahoma boyhood.
Also on the Nov. 28 live telecast of “The Voice,” nine artists will be revealed as safe by America's votes. The bottom two artists will then compete for the Instant Save and one will be eliminated.
“The Voice” is once again reigning this fall as the #1 alternative series in 18-49 and total viewers, averaging a 3.0 rating with its Monday and Tuesday telecasts in the 18-49 demographic and 12.6 million viewers, according to “live plus seven day” ratings from Nielsen Media Research. So far this season, Monday and Tuesday “Voice” original has finished among that week’s top 10 entertainment programs on the broadcast networks in 18-49.
“The Voice” is a presentation of MGM Television, Talpa Media USA Inc. and Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television. The series was created by John de Mol, who serves as executive producer along with Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Chad Hines, Amanda Zucker, Kyra Thompson and Stijn Bakkers.
