Blake Shelton is ready to walk the walk as much as he talks the talk.
Blake recently told “Entertainment Tonight” that he’s ready for a superstar to come from “The Voice” and he thinks Sundance Head is the guy to break that mold. And that’s just one of the reasons he’s taking Head on his Doing It to Country Songs Tour.
“There’s a tremendous number of talented people that come on ‘The Voice’ and the talent and connection with viewers is real and tangible. Sundance had amazing sales on iTunes and America voted him the winner. And RaeLynn made a connection on The Voice and is having success with her single, ‘Love Triangle.’ That talent and connection is why I’m excited for them and excited they will be joining me on tour.”
Blake also went on to say that one of the reasons contestants from “The Voice” haven’t experienced success like Kelly Clarkson or Carrie Underwood from “American Idol” is that the record label doesn’t have a plan for them, “I want to personally issue a challenge to Universal Records. This is the guy that I think can break the mold and become a star out of this show. I hope, and I give my word that I’ll put my work in — and I know he will — this guy deserves to be a star. There’s no excuses anymore. We need to make the record and put the work behind it that he deserves to have this success that he deserves, and that has to start with Universal Records getting involved and getting behind him.”
The Doing It To Country Songs Tour starts on February 16 in Bakersfield, California, and will continue through March 18th.
