Blake Shelton Setting Dia Frampton Up With Nashville Songwriters, Says He May Produce Album
Blake Shelton is true to his word when it comes to singer Dia Frampton, who represented his team in the finals of 'The Voice.' WYRK spoke to the man with the No. 1 album in the country backstage while on tour with Brad Paisley this past Saturday and got the scoop about Shelton's post-show involvement with Frampton, who became like family to him during their run together on the show.
Shelton revealed that he has set Frampton up with some songwriters in Nashville and that he'll likely be involved with producing her next album. Frampton was previously signed to Warner Bros. as part of duo Meg and Dia with her sister, so this could certainly be a stylistic change for her. But it's one that should elevate her career even further, as having the 'Honey Bee' singer in her corner will open doors and help to polish her sound.
Speaking of 'The Voice,' Shelton will return as a coach next season and auditions for the second season are taking place in Nashville this coming weekend. Auditions are set for Friday July 29 and Saturday July 30 at the Municipal Auditorium. The requirements are simple: You must be at least 16-years-old or older to audition, and you must register online beforehand. Solo artists and duos are permitted to audition regardless of genre. Those who cannot attend the open call can send video submissions if need be.
Interested 'Voices' should go here for more information about the show.
