Blake Shelton Tulsa, OK

As previously reported, Oklahoma country music superstar Blake Shelton dropped his new album, “Based On A True Story…,” and began a media blitz in support of the new release on Tuesday.

The Tishomingo resident began Tuesday a run of media dates throughout the next two weeks, culminating with a performance at the 48th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards at 7 p.m. April 7 on CBS.

Check out these photos of the Ada native playing as part of Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio Live at Wednesday. He will also is performing tonight on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” which airs at 11:37 p.m. weekdays on NBC.

In addition, Shelton will perform at a special private acoustic album release concert in Chicago on Friday as part of US99.5’s Live Country Series at Joe’s Bar.

Next week, fans can tune in Tuesday for more performances from Shelton on NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” at 10:35 p.m. and on April 3 on CBS’ “The Talk” at 1 p.m. He wraps up his appearances with his good friend Chelsea Handler to perform on E!’s “Chelsea Lately” on at 10 p.m. April 3 during the talk show’s hourlong milestone 1081st episode celebration. This marks their first performance on the show.

ACM Awards co-host, Country Music Association Awards’ Entertainer of the Year and three-peat Male Vocalist of the Year, Shelton, is one of the “most versatile of contemporary country singers,” according to The New York Times. With eight consecutive No. 1 singles (and 13 overall), Shelton’s infectious multi-week No.1 hit “Honey Bee” holds the record for the fastest-selling digital platinum single for a male country solo artist. Shelton’s passion for country music and his commitment to mentoring his teammates from “The Voice” make him an incredible ambassador for country music, particularly with Season 4 of the hit reality TV show now airing on Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC.

Starting July 19 in Virginia Beach, Va., fans can catch Shelton live on his “Ten Times Crazier Tour,” which will feature special guests Mercury Recording artist Easton Corbin and Academy of Country Music New Female Vocalist of the Year Jana Kramer. Shelton will bring his tour to Tulsa’s BOK Center on Oct 4. For more information, go to www.bokcenter.com.
