Blake Shelton returns to "The Voice" for the 19th season with the incredible accomplishment of being the coach for seven champions over the course of the series, including last season's winner, Todd Tilghman.
Shelton's other winners are Chloe Kohanski, Sundance Head, Craig Wayne Boyd, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope and Jermaine Paul.
Shelton has a championship career of his own and is still setting the mark in country music. Shelton, who has 27 No. 1 country singles, earned his latest honors last month when his No. 1 song "God's Country" was named ACM Single of the Year. He's currently enjoying a Top 10 single with fellow "Voice" coach Gwen Stefani with "Happy Anywhere." They recently celebrated their first No. 1 country single together with "Nobody but You," which made its television debut earlier this year on the Grammy Awards telecast.
Shelton was born, raised and currently lives in Oklahoma, where he has strong community ties. He recently donated $200,000 to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. In response to the devastating tornadoes of 2013, Shelton and NBC teamed up on the telethon "Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert." With the help of Reba, Usher, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, among others, the telethon raised more than $6 million for United Way of Central Oklahoma. He has donated $500,000 to the Jimmy Everest Center, an Oklahoma University hospital for children with blood cancer and blood disorders.
In association with Ryman Hospitality, Shelton has opened a string of entertainment-themed restaurants and bars called Ole Red. The first venue opened in 2017 in his hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. He now has venues in Nashville and Gatlinburg, Tennessee, and another opening in Orlando, Florida, this spring. Many of his "Voice" artists perform on the stages of Ole Red on a regular basis.
