    Blake Shelton & Jimmy Fallon Can’t Stop Laughing While Getting Their Palms Read

    From taking him out to lavish Japanese dinners and taking him on exciting new roller coasters, talk show host Jimmy Fallon is always trying to show his pal Blake Shelton the finer things in life, whether the country singer likes it or not.

    In promotion of his latest album Texoma Shore, Shelton appeared on the Tonight Show, the talk show host taking the country singer out to get their palms read from acclaimed fortune teller, Madame Fahrusha.

    “We’re about to get our palms read, and I’m a little psychic myself, and I can tell that you’re psyched to do this,” said Fallon to a visibly annoyed Shelton.

    “Shut up, let’s just go,” said Shelton clearly wanting to get the experience over with.

    Fallon and Shelton then entered the work place of Madame Fahrusha in hopes of getting a glimpse into their futures. However, shortly in their reading, it became clear the two did not take it seriously at all. While reading Shelton’s palm, Madame Fahrusha said she can tell he gives a lot to charity, the country singer taking the opportunity to take a shot at Fallon.

    “Me being on your show to try and help it, that kinda charity,” Shelton joked to Fallon.

    Ignoring the country singer’s comment, the fortune teller continued her reading on his palm, finding that his palm indicated he is overdoing something in his life.

    “Too much eating, too much drinking, too much sex,” read Madame Fahrusha.

    “Wait, what was that last one?” asked Shelton, clearly proud of his reading.

    “Two out three ain’t bad,” joked Fallon.

    Absolutely hilarious! You can watch it all go down in the video below!

    Blake Shelton Jokes Having ‘Kids On The Way’ During The Today Show

    Lately it seems like Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani can’t go a day without seeing headlines claiming they are expecting their first child together. In an appearance on the TODAY show, the country singer opens up on his relationship with the international popstar and her adorable three sons.

    “You got a relationship you’re happy with, you got music you’re happy with, you got kids on the way,” joked Kathie Lee Gifford in reference to the unrelenting rumours surrounding Shelton and Stefani.

    “Ya never saw that comin’, joked Shelton, before getting serious. “How can I not be [in love]? She is the greatest,” shared Shelton. “She is the greatest.”

    In addition to falling in love with Stefani, the country singer fell for her children, the country singer going to admit that he now realizes how much he missed out on.

    “At this point in my life, I kind of put that—well, I guess that wasn’t meant to be—and then all of a sudden it happens one way or another, and I’m like, wow, I really missed out on a lot, you know,” he shared. “Having them around is, I don’t even know how to describe it. It’s so much fun.”

    So does Shelton have any major regrets in his life? Just that The Voice isn’t filmed in Oklahoma.

    Drop Everything & Watch Chris Stapleton Sing The Smash Hit He Wrote For George Strait

    With more Top 10 hits under his belt than you could count, you could say that George Strait knows how to turn a song into a smash success.

    While an artist delivers a song to the masses, no song would take off without good songwriting. This is something Strait knows well, which is why he always takes extra care to select the most well-written pieces out there.

    One such song, called “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright,” was written by an incredibly skilled songwriting duo. Al Anderson, former lead guitarist of the rock band NRBQ, was one of the song’s co-writers. After leaving NRBQ, Anderson turned to writing country music. He’s since penned songs for popular artists such as Vince Gill and Trisha Yearwood, and wrote Tim McGraw‘s number one hit “The Cowboy in Me.”

    The other co-writer on “Love’s Gonna Make It Alright” is a person we’re sure y’all know well by now. It was none other than Chris Stapleton, who has earned a reputation as one of the greatest songwriters in country music.

    Stapleton’s solo career took off following his performance at the 2015 CMA Awards with Justin Timberlake. But he’s been performing for much longer than that, often putting his vocal skills on display at various songwriter showcase concerts.

    One such concert took place in 2012, a year after Strait released his recording of “Love’s Gonna Make it Alright” as a single. The song peaked at the third spot on the charts, and was also a crossover hit.

    To honor the success of the song he helped co-write, Stapleton performed “Love’s Gonna Make it Alright” at the showcase. With nothing but his voice and his guitar, Stapleton captivated the entire room with his passionate performance.

    If you liked “Love’s Gonna Make it Alright” before, then you’ll really fall in love with it after you watch Stapleton sing it below!

    You’ll Be Yelling ‘Hallelujah’ After Watching This 12-Year-Old Gospel Singer

    Out of all of the competition series out there, one manages to set itself apart. That series is Little Big Shots, which devotes itself to showcasing the talents of remarkable children.

    The show’s first season debuted in 2016, and it was a smash success. A second season followed in 2017, and the third season just debuted on Sunday (March 18).

    Already, you can tell that this season of Little Big Shots has a whole host of talented children to share with the world. One of those young talents is a 12-year-old boy named Miles.

    At his young age, Miles is already a skilled and experienced gospel singer. His large voice doesn’t even seem to fit his 12-year-old body, as you’ll see when you watch his Little Big Shots performance below.

    With an entire studio audience and the show’s host Steve Harvey looking on, Miles effortlessly flowed into his performance. The song he chose to sing was “For Every Mountain,” which was recorded by gospel artist Kurt Carr.

    It’s clear that Miles wanted to push the limits of his talent, because “For Every Mountain” is not an easy song to sing. It has a lot of moments that call for long, high notes, but as you’ll hear, these were no challenge for Miles.

    By the end, Miles had tears in his eyes as the entire crowd soared to their feet. Steve stormed the stage to be by his side, calling on everyone to put their hands together for the talented young gospel singer.

    It’s time for you to hear this young man’s remarkable performance below. He’ll take you to church, that’s for sure!

    Blake Shelton Names Who He Wants To Replace Adam Levine On ‘The Voice’

    Over the course of The Voice‘s 14 seasons, a number of coaches have filled the show’s famous red chairs. While the majority of the coaches have only participated in a handful of seasons, two have been there from day one.

    No matter what, fans of The Voice have always been able to count on Adam Levine and Blake Shelton anchoring the panel of coaches. They’re also the two fan-favorite judges, since their bickering and playful banter serve as constant sources of comedy.

    Because Levine and Shelton have been on The Voice for so long, it’s impossible to imagine the show without them. It always seems to be a given that the two will return every time a new season rolls around, but in reality, any season could be their last.

    As of right now, no coaches have been confirmed for Season 15 of The Voice, which will debut in the fall. In the event that Levine would not return, Shelton has already found the person he wants as his replacement…and his choice may surprise you.

    Known for his role as Jim Halpert on the hit television series The Office, actor John Krasinski is an unexpected choice to fill a red chair on The Voice. But even though he has no experience as a singer or musician, Krasinski is a professed fan of the show.

    On Sunday night (March 18), Krasinski tweeted at Shelton to let him know he was loving the current season of The Voice. He also wanted to let him know that his wife, actress Emily Blunt, “said she thought we’d be best friends.”

    Totally game to be a coach on The Voice, Krasinski wrote “Let’s get the paper work over with and make this happen!

    Before long, Shelton jumped in to respond, and he was all for the idea of having Krasinski as a coach on The Voice. He also named him as the perfect person to replace Levine on the show.

    Will you just replace Adam on the show?” Shelton asked. “Please?!!!! He is an idiot!!!

    Based on fan response, a lot of people are on board to have Krasinski as a coach. It would certainly be interesting to have a non-musician on the show, since he could offer a unique coaching perspective as a fan of music, and not an artist.

    However, we don’t want anyone to replace Levine on the show! We hope he returns for Season 15, but if he doesn’t, we know who Shelton wants to take his place.

    How about you? What do you think about Krasinki being a coach on The Voice?

    Carrie Underwood Makes One Of First Appearances Following Nasty Fall

    Days after hosting the CMA Awards in November, Carrie Underwood suffered a nasty fall at her Nashville home. The fall left Underwood with an injured wrist, which required surgery. As she revealed in an end of the year letter to her fan club, she also had to get 40-50 stitches in her face.

    In the letter, Carrie informed her fans that the next time they see her full face, she may look a little different.

    When I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different,” she wrote. “I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”

    Since then, Carrie has shied from sharing any photos of her full face on social media. Any time she does post a current photo, she covers part of her face in some way, either by turning her head or placing something over it.

    There is at least one known photo out there that shows Carrie’s face post-fall. This photo was shared by reality star Adrienne Gang, who met Carrie at the gym one day.

    Other than that one trip to the gym, Carrie has kept a pretty low profile. But recently, she finally made one of her first publics appearances since her fall…and for an extremely important event.

    For quite some time now, Carrie has been good friends with Zach and Colton Swon, who make up the country music duo the Swon Brothers. The brothers competed together on The Voice, where Colton met another contestant named Caroline Glasier. The two fell in love, and eventually married on Saturday (March 17).


    As Colton’s friend and former tourmate (the Swon Brothers were openers for her Storyteller tour), Carrie went to the wedding to celebrate with him and Caroline. While there are no photos of Carrie at the wedding, The Tennessean confirms that she was in attendance.

    According to the publication, Carrie tried not to draw much attention to herself, writing, that she “sat discreetly in the back of the room.”

    The greater public may finally get the chance to see Carrie for the first time in a while if she attends the ACM Awards in April. She is nominated for two awards: Female Vocalist of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year for her collaboration on “The Fighter” with Keith Urban.

    If Carrie doesn’t attend the ACM Awards, then her only known appearance for the year is scheduled to take place on August 2, when she’ll perform at WE Fest in Michigan.

    Until then, we hope y’all will enjoy watching Carrie’s newest music video for her empowering anthem “The Champion!”

    Jimmy Fallon Can’t Believe It When Blake Shelton Forgets One Of Gwen Stefani’s Biggest Hits

    Bet this country singer was in the dog house last night! During an appearance on the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon challenged Blake Shelton to a game of “Name That Song,” Shelton completely blanking when it came to identifying girlfriend Gwen Stefani‘s megahit, “Hollaback Girl.”

    In one of the beginning rounds of the game, the country singer wrongly guessed the beat being played matched Willie Nelson‘s “On the Road Again.”

    “It is too! This is bullcrap!” yelled a frustrated Shelton.

    After the band resumed playing the song, Fallon accurately guessed the beat matched with Charlie Daniels‘ “The Devil Went Down To Georgia.”

    After the next song began playing, Shelton and Fallon focused hard on trying to guess which song the beat belonged to, the talk show host completely losing it when he realized the song was Stefani’s 2004 smash hit single, “Hollaback Girl.”

    “Oh my gosh, you’re in so much trouble dude,” said Fallon as he took a seat next to a defeated Shelton. “You’re in so much trouble I don’t even know what to tell ya.”

    “I came to this show to promote my album and I’m losing everything, everything in my life!” yelled the country singer.

    Even though he had a few minor missteps along the road, the country singer ended up overall winning the game.

    You can watch Shelton and Fallon face off in the hilarious game below.

    Blake Shelton Tells The Story Of How He & Kelly Clarkson Made Adam Levine Cry On New Year’s Eve

    While they may have gotten to know each other pretty well now as coaches on NBC’s The Voice, sounds like Adam Levine, Black Shelton, and Kelly Clarkson go way back!

    During an appearance on the Tonight Show, Shelton shared a hilarious, unheard story about the time he and Clarkson made the Maroon 5 front-man cry on New Year’s Eve.

    On New Year’s Eve back in 2012, Shelton and Clarkson attended a Maroon 5 show at the casino near the country singer’s ranch. Even though the superstar artists made sure to get a designated driver for the occasion, they found themselves still getting pulled over by the police leaving the concert.

    “On the way back from the casino to my place we got pulled over,” shared Shelton. “We had rented van and a driver, and we got pulled over by a deputy sheriff for whatever. And not that we don’t respect the police, but we knew we hadn’t done anything wrong, so you can be a little cocky, you know, at that point.”

    Shelton went on to explain that he and Clarkson – a Texas native – were joking and “ribbing” on the cop, causing Levine to become increasingly worried the night would end with them behind bars.

    “Adam didn’t see it that way because Adam’s from Los Angeles where you don’t talk back to the police. And in Oklahoma if you got a good point you do sometimes,” said Shelton, before continuing, “And Adam was convinced we were going to jail and he got upset.”

    After finishing his hilarious story, Shelton sarcastically thanked Jimmy Fallon for briging up the story because now he’s ”really going to get a ticket in Oklahoma.”

    ‘Idol’ Contestant Hopes That Lightning Strikes Twice For Carrie Underwood’s Hometown

    It takes a lot of nerve to walk into an American Idol audition and cover a Carrie Underwood song. After all, Underwood is Idol‘s greatest success story. But, it takes even more nerve to be from Carrie Underwood’s hometown and sing a classic song that she revived during her Idol run.

    But, Underwood’s fellow Checotah, Oklahoma, native Kenedee Rittenhouse was unfazed by the challenge. When she was only a fifth-grader, Kenedee shared the stage with Carrie Underwood during a school assembly.

    “I happened to sing a Carrie song, then Carrie walked out,” Rittenhouse told her local newspaper. “I was starstruck. She asked if I wanted to sing with her. I can barely remember it. Just the experience of singing with her really made me realize that was what I wanted to do when I grew up.”

    As she stood in front of the judging panel during Monday night’s auditions, Rittenhouse was confident in her ability to pull Carrie Underwood’s version of the Randy Travis classic “I Told You So.”

    Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan were immediately drawn to Rittenhouse’s outgoing personality and Idol-esque appearance, but weren’t won over by her voice, at first.

    “Kenedee, you look like an American Idol. Your personality is everything. But, your voice just isn’t knocking me completely out of the park,” Luke Bryan said. “When you choose Carrie Underwood, you’ve got to be with Carrie or even beyond.”

    Kenedee was then challenged to sing Katy Perry’s hit “Firework.” Again the judges weren’t blown away by the performance, but heard enough potential in her voice to move her on to the next round in Hollywood.

    Hear Kenedee Rittenhouse sing “I Told You So” in the video below and let us know what you think of her audition!

    Watch The Brilliantly Talented Mel Tillis Sing The Hit Song He Wrote For Kenny Rogers

    For most people, Mel Tillis was the voice that delivered major country hits such as “Coca-Cola Cowboy” and “I Ain’t Never.” But to those who knew more about the life and career of the Country Music Hall of Famer, he was also an expert songwriter.

    You probably never realized it before, but Tillis served as the force behind the pen that crafted songs for some pretty big names. Just a few include Patsy Cline‘s “Strange,” George Strait‘s “Thoughts of a Fool,” and Waylon Jennings‘ “Mental Revenge.”

    Perhaps one of the most well-known songs that Tillis ever wrote was “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town.” Originally recorded by country artist Johnny Darrell and released in 1967, the song tells a heartbreaking story. It focuses on a paralyzed veteran who painfully watches his wife get all dolled up to go out on the town without him. Fearful that she’s looking for a lover, the veteran pleads for her not to go, but she doesn’t listen.

    Darrell managed to take the song to the ninth spot on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. But his name is not the one that people most often associate with the song.That’s because two years after Darrell released his recording, another artist scored an even bigger hit with it.

    That artist was Kenny Rogers, who was still recording with the First Edition at the point in his career. Because of this, his rendition of “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town” took on more of a country-pop sound.

    The song didn’t perform as well on the country charts as Darrell’s version did, and stalled at the 39th spot on the Hot Country Singles chart. But it experienced immense success on the all-genre Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at the sixth spot.

    While many others have recorded “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town” over the years, including George Jones and Jerry Reed, Rogers’ name is the one that most often comes up. We’re sure you’re used to hearing Rogers’ version of the song, so how would you like to hear it from the man who wrote it?

    In the video below, you’ll get the chance to watch Tillis perform the hit song that he wrote for Rogers all of those years ago. Surrounded by a group of enthusiastic country fans, Tillis delivered a smooth-as-honey performance while the entire crowd clapped along to the beat.

    Watching this, there’s no way you can deny how brilliantly talented Tillis was. We’ll never find another one like him, that’s for sure.
