Blake Shelton launched his 14-date Country Music Freaks Tour with openers Carly Pearce and Brett Eldredge on Feb. 15. Between his role as a coach on The Voice, releasing the new single “I Lived It” and making the media rounds, Blake says touring is still his favorite part of his career, and he’s excited that Carly and Brett are along for the ride. Shelton said “I can’t believe this lineup actually worked out, because Brett, his career is blowing up. He’s the new dude in country music that’s taken off, and I couldn’t be happier for him. And man, it’s tough, you know, we wanted a female artist for the tour to represent the girls in country music . . . and we’re so lucky to get Carly, and I can’t thank her enough for signing on for this tour. She’s going to make us look good.” Blake has 11 more dates left on his Country Music Freaks Tour, including stops in St. Louis, Dallas, Atlanta, Philadelphia and more.
