Blake Shelton Performs ‘Honey Bee’ + More on the ‘Today’ Show
Blake Shelton took the stage for the 'Today' show summer concert series today, July 8, to perform two of his nine No. 1 hits, 'Who Are You When I'm Not Looking' and 'Honey Bee.'
Armed with an acoustic guitar and a quiet backing band, Shelton kicked off the performance by laying down his sweet love tune 'Who Are You When I'm Not Looking' effortlessly. Big fans in the audience, many sporting Texas-sized cowboy hats, squealed in delight as they sang along to their favorite Shelton hit.
Following his first song, Shelton stood with Ann Curry to answer a few questions about his larger-than-life year and his new album, 'Red River Blue.' When asked if this 2011 could be his best year ever, the 'Hillbilly Bone' hitmaker replied with a laugh, "It is my best year ever, it's not could it be. It's been amazing, from, you know, 'Honey Bee' doing as well as it is, and 'The Voice' ... getting married, everything! I don't know, what do you want me to say?"
After a little nudging, Curry made sure that the notoriously funny country star paid tribute to his wife Miranda Lambert, who was elsewhere in New York City performing on "some other morning show," 'Good Morning America.' "Getting married is by far the most crucial, pivotal thing that has ever happened to me," Shelton said of his No. 1 gal.
After 'The Voice' judge was finished cracking jokes at the mic, he went back to his guitar to give fans his most recent No. 1 and first-ever platinum single, 'Honey Bee.' "It was one of those things, when I heard it, it sounded like my life at the time," Shelton said before jumping into the song. "I didn't really know it would turn into what it's turned into."
