LAS VEGAS (November 30, 2016) – Country music superstar and Platinum-selling recording artist Blake Shelton will take a song from his current album If I’m Honest to bill his 2017 “Doing It To Country Songs” tour. Shelton and special guest RaeLynn will perform at the MGM Grand Garden Arena when the tour makes its Las Vegas stop Saturday, March 4.
“Performing for an audience is what I love most – and if you’re coming to see me, you’re coming to hear country music, because that’s what I do,” said Shelton. “So get ready as we’re going to be ‘Doin’ It To Country Songs’ all night long!”
The tour follows the 2016 release of Shelton’s 10th studio album, If I’m Honest, which was not only the biggest selling album in the week of its release, but also the best-selling country album released this year. With four weeks atop the Billboard Country albums chart, the 15-track project features the tour’s namesake along with Shelton’s latest No. 1 smash hit “Came Here To Forget” and his current Top 15 and climbing single “A Guy With A Girl.”
Opening the tour is Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville recording artist RaeLynn, whose current single “Love Triangle” is the powerful first track from her forthcoming debut album WildHorse. She was recently selected as a CMT Next Women of Country honoree and a 2017 “Country Artist to Watch” by Pandora Radio.
