Blake Shelton fans will be lining up at retailers nationwide on July 12, as the country star is releasing his ninth album, featuring the hit first single 'Honey Bee,' on that day. The album is produced by well-known Nashville producer Scott Hendricks, and will be out on Warner Bros. Records.

"There are so many things I’m excited to share with everyone this year,' Shelton says of the new album release. "I can’t wait for people to hear the record. I have found some of the best songs of my career."

Shelton's current single (and the first tune off the album), 'Honey Bee,' is his fastest rising single to date. It sold over 138,000 digital singles in its debut week -- and no other country male soloist can top that.

Tomorrow, April 26, the country star joins rocker Adam Levine, pop star Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green as a competition coach on NBC’s new musical reality show, 'The Voice.' "I also think people will be surprised at all the talent they will see on 'The Voice,'" Shelton adds. "There were so many great vocalists who just blew me away and it has been the coolest thing to be part of it all."

To show you how hot the 'Honey Bee' singer is, Shelton hasn't had a single not make the Top 10 on the charts since nearly four years ago, in 2007. On May 14, Shelton will marry longtime sweetheart Miranda Lambert in Texas.
