Blake Keeps It Country On The Voice

Every season, the Voice coaches welcome a new advisor to the show to help them coach their teams through the battle rounds. Country fans anxiously wait for each new advisor announcement, since Blake Shelton often picks a fellow country star to work with his team.

In seasons past, Shelton has welcomed everyone from Trace Adkins to Rascal Flatts to help his team rehearse for the battle rounds.

You can always count on Shelton and his advisor to bring a bunch of comedy to the show, since he typically picks someone that’s also one of his friends.

Keep The Good Times Rollin’

For example, Shelton helped make Season 12 of The Voice one of the most hilarious seasons ever when he welcomed Luke Bryan as his advisor. The two buddies couldn’t stop joking around during rehearsals, resulting in some rib-tickling moments for viewers.

Voice viewers got the chance to watch the hilarity ensue yet again, only between Shelton and a different advisor.

During Season 15 The Voice announced the list of battles advisors, which boasted not one, but two country stars, as both Thomas Rhett and Keith Urban joined the show for the battles.

Rhett worked with Kelly Clarkson as her team’s advisor, while Urban was paired with Shelton.

You Know This Pairing Was A Recipe For Comedy

During an interview with Access, Urban revealed that Shelton “cornered” him at an awards show to ask if he’d be his team’s advisor. Being placed in that position, Urban knew he couldn’t say no!

Their interview was filled with a number of hilarious moments, but the best came toward the end. The two were asked to describe each other using only three words, prompting Urban to inquire if they had to be appropriate words.

After thinking for a while, Urban decided to take a serious approach and came up with three words to describe Shelton, “honest, charming, cunning.”

Shelton wasn’t so serious with the three words he used to describe Urban, calling him the “thunder down under.” Urban was caught off guard, and started to chuckle as soon as Shelton said the first word.
