NASHVILLE, TN - (April 5, 2011) – People are catching the buzz with Warner Bros. Records’ hot country star and coach on NBC’s The Voice, Blake Shelton’s infectious new single, “Honey Bee.” Since his electrifying world premiere performance of the new single on Sunday night’s Academy of Country Music Awards on CBS, “Honey Bee” is at No. 1 on the iTunes Country Songs Chart and No. 3 on the iTunes Overall Songs Chart.

Shelton also made a successful co-hosting debut with country superstar Reba at the 46th Annual ACM Awards.

This past year, Blake Shelton, one of the "most versatile of contemporary country singers" (The New York Times), proves he is a force to be reckoned with after winning six awards including CMA Award for "Male Vocalist of the Year," receiving three consecutive No. 1's ("Who Are You When I'm Not Looking," "All About Tonight" and "Hillbilly Bone"), selling out shows on his first ever headlining tour "All About Tonight Tour," his first No. 1 album All About Tonight, receiving his first GRAMMY nomination and is currently a coach on NBC's The Voice which airs April 26. In addition to these amazing accolades, Shelton's latest CD, LOADED: The Best of Blake Shelton, debuted in the Top 10 on the Country Charts adding Shelton into an elite group of artists who have charted three records in one year (among those are Garth Brooks, Kenny Chesney and Alan Jackson). Shelton's eight No. 1 hits are "Who Are You When I'm Not Looking," "All About Tonight," "Hillbilly Bone," "She Wouldn't Be Gone," "Home," "Some Beach," "The Baby" and "Austin." Shelton has not had a single peak outside the Top Ten since 2007.
