BLAKE SHELTON SELLS OUT FIRST HEADLINING SHOW IN NASHVILLE AT THE HISTORIC RYMAN

Nashville – March 16, 2010 – Fans quickly jumped at the chance to see Academy Of Country Music Award nominee Blake Shelton perform at the world-renowned Ryman Auditorium in his first headlining show in Nashville, Tenn., and now the one-night only show is sold-out. In addition to Reprise/Warner Bros. Records artist Shelton performing his past hits, fans will get to hear him perform songs from his new album Hillbilly Bone, including his No. 1 and ACM Nominated single, “Hillbilly Bone.”

“If anyone knows me, they know how important country music and its history is to me,” said Shelton. “I’ve been lucky enough to perform at the Ryman as part of the Grand Ole Opry and that is an honor unto itself. I cannot wait to stand-up on the historic Ryman stage, in front of my family and fans, and give the best performance of my life.”

Shelton released his sixth studio album, Hillbilly Bone, on March 2. In addition to the comedic, sing-along duet with Trace Adkins, “Hillbilly Bone,” the new album includes six new tracks from Shelton. Hillbilly Bone is produced by Scott Hendricks. His last single, "I’ll Just Hold On," broke into the Top 10 on the country singles charts and was the follow-up to his back-to-back multi-week No. 1 singles "She Wouldn’t Be Gone” and “Home.” Shelton's hits also include his five-week No. 1 debut single, "Austin," and two additional multi-week No. 1singles "The Baby” and “Some Beach.”
