There’s no way around it; country music is huge. Responding to what the people want, the Spokane Arena has booked Blake Shelton's Ten times Crazier Tour to play the venue Sept. 18. The show includes country’s favorite siblings the Band Perry along with Dan & Shay and Neal McCoy.
Shelton, an Oklahoma homeboy, came to prominence in mainstream America in 2011 after landing judging gig on The Voice — his bromance with Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine brought him a whole new slew of fans. But before that, he had torn up the country charts for a decade.
Despite a running joke (propagated by himself, see video below) that he spends a lot of time drinking, Shelton had three No. 1’s in a row on the country charts last year, continues to serve as a judge on The Voice, has won the CMA’s Male Vocalist of the Year award four years in a row and is married to country star Miranda Lambert. Drunk or not, the man keeps busy. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, April 25.
