Wrapping up his sold-out Ten Times Crazier tour, Blake Shelton was surprised in Tulsa, Okla. with a platinum plaque for his current album Based On A True Story…. Local radio stations KTGX, KWEN, KVOO and KJKE helped celebrate with Blake along with WMN’s President & CEO, John Esposito and Southwest Regional Promotion Manager, Mark Niederhauser.
Blake Shelton is CMA Awards’ reigning Entertainer of the Year and three-peat Male Vocalist of the Year. With nine consecutive No. 1 singles (fourteen overall) Blake is one of the "most versatile of contemporary country singers" (The New York Times). His infectious multi-week No.1 hit, “Honey Bee" still holds the record for the fastest-selling digital Platinum single for a male country solo artist, and just off the heels of his No. 1 smash hit “Boys ‘Round Here,” from his critically-acclaimed album Based On A True Story…, the follow up single “Mine Would Be You” is already Top 10 on the charts. “To A Purist Mr. Shelton is a savvy student of tradition. To A Would-be outlaw he’s forever adding a wink. He’s a star who is only as explicit as you want him to be,” Jon Caramanica, The New York Times. Blake Shelton’s passion for country music and his commitment to mentoring his teammates from The Voice make him an incredible ambassador for country music.
