Blake Shelton is a busy man this week! Before jetting off to Vegas for his gig at the 2011 ACM Awards, he'll be shooting the music video for a new single in Los Angeles. While there, he will make some TV appearances, including his fourth visit to E!'s 'Chelsea Lately' tomorrow night on CBS, the estrogen-populated show 'The Talk' on Thursday, March 31 and CBS' 'The Early Show' on Friday morning, April 1. But his big night will be Sunday, April 3, when he debuts his highly-anticipated new single at the ACMs.
Shelton will co-host this year's ACM Awards with Reba McEntire. Not only does he have hosting duties, but he is also up for the award for Male Vocalist of the Year. The 'Who Are You When I'm Not Looking' singer will then premiere his brand-new song. It all goes down live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, starting at 8PM ET.
As for his co-hosting duties on Sunday night, Shelton says, "This awards show, I think, is ultimately going to not only be a good thing for my career, but a good thing for me as a person."
Known for his (at times) untamed tongue, the country star promises not to cuss Sunday night. His co-host Reba good-naturedly points out, "He's a character. Yeah, he is. He's a mess. You've got to watch him. I'm terrified, yes I am." But Shelton says, "I think I'm gonna be OK. I think Reba's the one we need to be worried about."
Next month, Shelton will be a coach on a new NBC show, 'The Voice,' which has its season premiere on April 26. He opens for Brad Paisley on the H2O Tour, which kicks off on May 28, and before that, Shelton has carved out time in his schedule to be marry country's own Miranda Lambert on May 15 in Oklahoma.
