Blake Shelton Benefits From ‘Healing in the Heartland’ Benefit
Oklahoma native and country star Blake Shelton planned a benefit concert for tornado relief, 'Healing in the Heartland,' and the the Sooner state wasn't the only benefactor of the event -- Shelton was, too.
According to Billboard, the 'Boys 'Round Here' hitmaker saw his album 'Based on a True Story' return to No. 1 on Top Country Albums after the charity concert. While he most certainly didn't plan the event to benefit himself, it's exciting to know that sometimes, what goes around comes around -- in a positive way.
The benefit concert raised more than $6 million for tornado relief, and his album is at the top of the chart for the fourth cumulative week. It also accumulated the Greatest Gainer nod on the Billboard 200 and has sold 588,000 copies to date.
'The Voice' coach, who just won Male Video of the Year for the 2013 CMT Awards, has done a whole lot of good for his home state. He always rises to the occasion when there's a need, as evidenced by his tornado relief work in 2011, and that's one of the reasons he's one of the most-loved country singers.
