Blake Shelton Gets Back to the Honky Tonk with 2023 Tour

by Tina Benitez-Eves September 7, 2022, 1:20 pm

Blake Shelton   is getting back on the road with his headlining Back to the Honky Tonk Tour in 2023.

“There’s nothing like getting out on the road and taking music to the fans,” said Shelton in a statement. “I feel just as excited to step on stage and perform as I did the very first time. I know my tour mates Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean feel the same, and I can’t wait for y’all to get to know them better. Break out the hats and boots, ‘cause we’re going back to the honky tonk!” 

Shelton recently released his new single “ No Body ,” a throwback to ’90s country music, the aesthetics of the era, and line dancing at the club. The video is another blast from the not-too-distance past with Shelton donning a mullet, while performing in a retro-looking honky tonk, singing  Don’t wanna scoot the boots with no body / Get straight tequila drunk on no body / Wrap these arms around no body / No body but yours .

The track features more nostalgic nods to Shelton’s earlier days in Nashville and one of his inspirations, Conway Twitty, who he covered (“Goodbye Time”) on his third album  Blake Shelton’s Barn & Grill  in 2005.

“All I ever considered myself was a country singer,” said Shelton. “I love country music and that’s on my horizon – from a career standpoint – just keeping that thing going and having songs on the radio and being able to go out and tour and play. That’s what I do. I am a country singer.”

Prior to “Happy Anywhere,” Shelton and Stefani celebrated a 2x Platinum, multi-week No. 1 with “Nobody But You,” which has now topped 480 million global streams. The single made its TV debut on the 62nd GRAMMY Awards, where Shelton was also nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for his hit “God’s Country.” The 4x Platinum smash earned the 2019 CMA Award and 2020 ACM Award for Single of the Year. As his award wins approach the hundreds, Shelton remains a force in the industry with ACM (5), AMA (3), CMA (10), CMT (11) and People’s Choice Awards (7), among many others.

About Carly Pearce

Fiercely rooted in the classics, the girl who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood has grown into a woman who embraces the genre’s forward progression. Confident in what she wants to say, the committed songwriter has resonated with fans and caught the attention of music critics from Billboard , NPR , Rolling Stone , The New York Times touting 29: WRITTEN IN STONE (Big Machine Records) on their 2021 year-end Best of Lists. Carly performed the collection in its entirety throughout her sold-out THE 29 TOUR and is currently on Kenny Chesney’s HERE AND NOW TOUR 2022. Lighting a fire with her debut album EVERY LITTLE THING and the PLATINUM-certified history making title track, Carly’s 2X PLATINUM-certified “I Hope You’re Happy Now" with Lee Brice won both the CMA Musical Event and ACM Music Event , plus ACM Single of the Year . She picked up her second consecutive ACM Awards Music Event of the Year with Ashley McBryde duet “Never Wanted To Be That Girl,” Carly’s third No. 1 and the third duet between two solo women to top Country Airplay, dating to the Billboard chart’s January 1990 inception. Knowing it’s time to move on, she offers final reckoning of a relationship that failed and a new set of standards for the next time she falls in love with the project’s final single “What He Didn’t Do,” co-written alongside Ashley Gorley and Emily Shackleton. Recently filming “Carly Pearce Inside 29: Written In Stone – Live from Music City” with acclaimed director Shaun Silva at Nashville’s Marathon Music Works, her surprise duet with Wynonna Judd aired on ABC’s CMA Fest special and CARLY PEARCE: TWO NIGHTS AT THE RYMAN October 26 & 27 mark her first headline dates at the iconic venue.

About Jackson Dean

Mature beyond his years, Jackson has a daring and carefree spirit, having moved out at 18 years old to live in a cinderblock, concrete floor, one-room shack on the back of his grandfather’s property with no heat and no plumbing. Bringing that same sense of adventure to his songwriting, Jackson writes both independently and alongside outliers like Luke Dick, classic writers like Casey Beathard and everyone in between. Following the release of his debut collection  JACKSON DEAN , Jackson continues to show people how real music can be with atmospheric, musically forward album  GREENBROKE  out now via Big Machine Records. Featured on the soundtrack for Netflix’s  The Ice Road  and in an episode of Paramount Network’s  Yellowstone , the stomping “Don’t Come Lookin’” is making its mark as his first single at Country radio. Following an early career of local performances in his hometown, Jackson has joined bills with superstar acts like Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brantley Gilbert, Kane Brown, Jake Owen and Brothers Osborne.

Toby Keith, Country Music Star Who Sang ‘Should’ve Been a Cowboy,’ Dies at 62

Toby Keith , the country singer who scored the genre’s most-played song of the ’90s with “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” died on Monday night of stomach cancer. He was 62.

The news was announced on Keith’s official website as well as his social media channels. “Toby Keith passed peacefully last night on Feb. 5, surrounded by his family,” the statement reads. “He fought his fight with grace and courage. Please respect the privacy of his family at this time.”

Taking into account studio albums, Christmas records and greatest hits compilations, Keith released a project nearly every year for almost two decades. He was a prolific songwriter and hit machine, with some of his most well-known songs including “Red Solo Cup,” “As Good as I Once Was,” “Beer for My Horses” with Willie Nelson, “Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue (The Angry American)” and “How Do You Like Me Now?!”

Born in Clinton, Okla. on July 8, 1961, Keith started his career in music at the age of 20 by forming the Easy Money Band with his friends. In the mid-’80s, the group began playing at honky-tonks in Oklahoma and Texas, and by the ’90s Keith was husking in Nashville in hopes of getting a record deal. His big break finally came when a flight attendant gave his demo tape to Mercury Records exec Harold Shedd, who had worked with Shania Twain and Billy Ray Cyrus. Shedd signed Keith and released his 1993 debut single, “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” which reached No. 1 on Billboard’s country songs chart. The song would go on to become the most-played country song of the decade.

The success of “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” continued with Keith’s self-titled debut album, which was certified platinum and produced three more hits: “He Ain’t Worth Missing,” “A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action” and “Wish I Didn’t Know Now.”

In 1999, Keith moved to DreamWorks Records. His first single on the label, “When Love Fades,” performed poorly on the charts so he had it withdrawn and replaced by “How Do You Like Me Now?,” which became his first song to break through the top 40 on the Hot 100, peaking at No. 31. The album “How Do You Like Me Now?” was released later that year and produced another country No. 1 with “You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This.” His 2001 album “Pull My Chain” followed a similar trajectory, with all three singles — “I’m Just Talkin’ About Tonight,” “I Wanna Talk About Me” and “My List” reaching the top spot on the country charts.

2002’s “Unleashed” featured “Beer for My Horses,” a duet with Willie Nelson that topped the country charts for six weeks and made it to No. 22 on the Hot 100. In 2003, Keith dropped his eighth studio album, “Shock’n Y’all,” and all three singles — “I Love This Bar,” “American Soldier” and “Whiskey Girl” — reached No. 1 on the country charts. In 2004, Keith released his second “Greatest Hits” record, and in 2005 released his last album with DreamWorks, “Honkytonk University,” with single “As Good as I Once Was” hitting No. 1.

Keith’s rapid-fire success slowed a little after DreamWorks ceased operations and he started his own label, Slow Dog Nashville. His 2006 album, “White Trash With Money,” didn’t make as big of a splash, but 2007’s “Big Dog Daddy” saw his first No. 1 since 2005 with “Love Me if You Can.” “Big Dog Daddy” was followed by another Christmas album and greatest hits compilation, and two more hits-producing albums, 2008’s “That Don’t Make Me a Bad Guy” and 2009’s “American Ride.”

2010’s “Bullets in the Gun” was Keith’s first record that didn’t result in a top 10 hit. But Keith couldn’t dodge success for too long — 2011’s “Clancy’s Tavern” contained the No. 1 song “Made in America” and “Red Solo Cup,” Keith’s biggest crossover to date which peaked at No. 15 on the Hot 100.

Keith released three more albums over the next three years, “Hope on the Rocks,” “Drinks After Work” and “35 MPH Town.” He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2015 and released a compilation record, “The Bus Songs,” in 2017. His final studio album, “Peso in My Pocket,” released in 2021.

He also dabbled in acting, appearing in 2005’s musical drama “Broken Bridges” directed by Steven Goldmann. In 2008, he wrote and starred in “Beer for My Horses,” based on his hit song of the same name. His business ventures included the restaurant Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill, which first opened in Oklahoma City and then expanded to more than a dozen locations nationwide, and a clothing line called TK Steelman. He also helped found Big Machine Records in 2005 alongside former DreamWorks exec Scott Borchetta, which went on to launch the careers of country stars including Taylor Swift.

In September 2023, Keith performed for the first time since his cancer diagnosis at the People’s Choice Country Awards, where he received the Country Icon Award.

Keith played his final concert on Dec. 14 in Las Vegas, where he performed his biggest hits at the sold out show.

Keith is survived by his wife Tricia Lucus, who he has been married to since 1984, and their three children Shelley, Krystal and Stelen.

Taylor Swift will likely take her private plane from Tokyo to Las Vegas for the Super Bowl. But the jet comes with emissions – and criticism.

By Caitlin O'Kane

February 6, 2024 / 12:00 PM EST / CBS News

Taylor Swift is set to have a quick turnaround between her concert in Tokyo on Feb. 10 and the Super Bowl in Las Vegas on Feb. 11. But with a private jet, she will likely be able to get across the world in time for the game. The jet, however, comes with steep carbon dioxide emissions – and criticism. 

In 2022, digital marketing team Yard published a report that exposed what it called the celebs with the worst private jet Co2 emissions, as revealed by the now-defunct Twitter account @CelebrityJets . Swift was at the top of the list.

Between January and July 2022, Swift's jet took 170 flights, totaling 22,923 minutes in the air, according to the compiled records. That equals 15.9 days. She wasn't touring that year and the average flight time was just 80 minutes, according to Yard. Her shortest flight was 36 minutes – from Missouri to Nashville. 

The private jet's flight emissions equaled 8,293.54 tons – which is 1,184.8 times more than the average person's total annual emissions.

Other people on Yard's list: Floyd Mayweather, Jay-Z, Alex Rodriguez, Blake Shelton, Stephen Spielberg and Km Kardashian. 

The private jet patterns of Swift and other celebrities are made public by Federal Aviation Administration data. But it the data has been made even more readily available by college student Jack Sweeney, who ran the @CelebrityJets Twitter and continues to share celebrity private jet patterns on Instagram.

Sweeney, a junior at University of Central Florida, even has accounts on X that share information specifically on both Elon Musk and Swift's private jets. Both @ElonJetNextDay and @SwiftJetNextDay promise to share flight information 24 hours after each flight.

But the information shared by Sweeney constitutes as "stalking and harassing behavior," according to Swift's attorney, who threatened legal action against Sweeney, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.  

Musk had previously taken legal action against Sweeney, saying the travel information shared on Twitter put his family at risk.  Sweeney's original account, @ElonJet, was suspended by Twitter in 2022, according to BBC News.

Several high-profile figures have faced scrutiny for their private jet usage – and Sweeney's website, Ground Control , tracks several celebrities' travel, from Bill Gates to Kylie Jenner.

Both Gates and Swift have defended their private jet usage by arguing they offset the emissions. Gates said he supports clean technology and other sustainability initiatives, according to the Associated Press. 

And in a statement to the AP, Swift's publicist said "Taylor purchased more than double the carbon credits needed to offset all tour travel" before her tour began this year. No further details were provided.

CBS News has reached out to Swift's attorney and Sweeney and is awaiting response. 

Sweeney's @SwiftJetNextDay account last shared an update about Swift's jet on Jan. 31, when it took a 26-minute flight from Missouri to Illinois and another 13-minute return flight. 

The first flight alone released two tons of CO2 emissions and took 151 gallons – or 1,010 lbs – of fuel that costs $844, according to Sweeney's account.

Taylor Swift Not Performing at 2024 Grammys, Set to Fly Immediately to Japan Afterwards for 4 Back-to-Back Shows

The next leg of Swift's Eras Tour kicks off Feb. 7 with four back-to-back shows in Tokyo, Japan

Sorry Swifties — Taylor Swift won't be performing at the 2024 Grammy Awards .

While the pop superstar, 34, is expected to attend the annual music awards show on Sunday, PEOPLE has learned she won't perform at the ceremony because she must immediately travel to Japan for the next leg of her Eras Tour.

Swift is scheduled to perform four back-to-back shows at the Tokyo Dome from Feb. 7-10, before continuing the Eras Tour in Australia, Asia and Europe through the end of the summer. The tour is currently set to conclude with concerts in the United States and Canada this fall.

At the 2024 Grammy Awards, Swift is nominated in six categories: song of the year, record of the year and best pop solo performance for the No. 1 hit "Anti-Hero," best pop duo/group performance for "Karma" with Ice Spice as well as best pop vocal album and album of the year for Midnights .

The "Cruel Summer" musician's boyfriend, Travis Kelce, recently confirmed he won't be able to attend the Grammys alongside Swift during an interview on The   Pat McAfee Show .

"I wish I could go support Taylor at the Grammys, and watch her win every single award that she’s nominated for," said the Kansas City Chiefs tight end, whose team will play in Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11.

"But I think I've got practice on Sunday," Kelce, 34, coyly added, uncertain if his team would use Saturday as a practice day and Sunday as a travel day. However, he explained that his schedule just won't allow for him to attend the show while staying focused on Kansas City's fourth Super Bowl in five years.

Swift's Eras Tour has been a massive success since its launch in March 2023, grossing over $1 billion and becoming the most lucrative concert tour of all time, according to Pollstar .

"I knew this tour was harder than anything I’d ever done before by a long shot," she told Time of the 3-plus-hour-long concert, which sees Swift perform tracks from nearly all of her 10 original studio albums as well as two surprise songs each night.

She started training for the tour six months before it kicked off. "Every day I would run on the treadmill, singing the entire set list out loud," Swift told the outlet. "I wanted to be so over-rehearsed that I could be silly with the fans, and not lose my train of thought."

Shania Twain is back on tour. The country queen talks throat surgery, set list and liquid diets

A few years ago, Shania Twain wasn’t sure if she’d ever find her voice again.

Open-throat surgery to repair her damaged vocal cords – a long-gestating result of Lyme disease she contracted in 2003 – was frightening but necessary.

Now, the comely country-pop superstar has returned with confidence and vigor as she celebrates the release of “ Queen of Me ” – her first album in six years – and readies the Friday launch of her seven-month tour bearing the same name.

Start the day smarter. Get all the news you need in your inbox each morning.

It's her first tour in five years, and she's “doing great vocally,” she says from Las Vegas, where she lives, played two successful residencies (2012 and 2019) and also spent the past month rehearsing for her impending dash around the world. “I feel like my voice is back. It’s different, but it’s strong.”

Pre-singing warmups “to get the larynx in the right position” and warm downs are mandatory, and she’s prepared to tackle a set list of more than 20 songs, including a medley of some rare fan favorites.

“I’m not not going to do the classics, but I won’t be doing all of them. Since I did the Vegas residencies (of hits), I’ll give some of those a rest and am doing this medley of songs I might not have done on stage before and I know people love them,” she says.

Twain, who was bestowed with the Equal Play Award at the CMT Awards , continues to advocate for female artists and is resolute that she will continue to “straddle the line” between country and pop music and “carry on being myself.”

Women have made progress but not in country music

In the three decades since her self-titled debut, country music has regressed in bolstering female singers, Twain feels.

“They’re not as inclusive as they were,” she says. “It’s a mystery as to why. I would change it if I could, but all I can do is support the awareness. I’m glad I’m not a new artist starting out in country as a female. It’s a hard enough road as it is.”

Twain, who is providing a platform for Kelsea Ballerini , Lindsay Ell , Mickey Guyton and other female openers on her tour, points to a CMT study from 2020 that indicated more than 80% of country music listeners want to hear more songs from women. But she, like most, is baffled about the stagnant status.

“I don’t know why it’s happening, but I notice it and miss it myself as a listener,” she says.

Crossover controversy: 'I don’t know why it can work for one genre and not the other'

Twain’s affection for pop music is an anchor in her own music. “Waking Up From Dreaming” and “Giddy Up” from “Queen of Me” are recent examples, but the five-time Grammy winner earned her popularity with the savvy marriage of electronic drum stomps and glossy production with fiddles and banjo on everlasting hits “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!,” “I’m Gonna Getcha Good” and “Any Man of Mine.”

Following the CMT Awards, where rapper Megan Thee Stallion presented Twain with the Equal Play honor and Gwen Stefani and Alanis Morissette performed their classics (“Just a Girl” and “You Oughta Know,” respectively), some social media mouthpieces attacked the show for spotlighting pop, rather than country music.

But Twain audibly shrugs at the backlash .

“It’s not new to country to have other genres joining in on live TV. And then you have so many country artists who have gone the other way. Pop has accepted guest vocals or duets with country artists. I don’t know why it can work for one genre and not the other,” she says.

Shania Twain appreciates Taylor, Adele and Madonna

Twain is an obvious fan of pop queens , having seen Taylor Swift’s epic outing (“It was an awesome, beautiful show”) and giving Adele heart palpitations when the British songbird realized Twain attended one of her Vegas performances.

She also appreciates the fashion element present in Madonna ’s shows and is turning that inspiration into her own explorations on this tour.

“I’ve enjoyed being in the sewing room every day,” she says, and then clarifies with a laugh. “I’m not DOING the sewing – I have my girls for that – but I’m pinning and cutting and draping. They get scared when I say, ‘Gimme the scissors!’”

Twain is proud of the live show she’s created, which she describes as “chic and sleek” with graphics “telling a visual story.”

Twain sticks to a liquid diet

It is inarguable that the lovely Twain , 57, barely looks different from her breakthrough years of “The Woman in Me” and “Come On Over” nearly three decades ago. She attributes her slender form to a strict diet of mostly liquids, primarily protein shakes packed with raw greens, usually spinach or kale.

Twain says she normally eats one meal per day and doesn’t often snack, but if she needs a boost, it’s peanut butter or dark chocolate.

Also, “Never cheese on a show day because dairy creates phlegm,” she adds.

Twain presents plenty of fortitude – especially with a 76-date tour on the horizon – but she doesn’t adhere to any rigorous workout routines.

“Before tour rehearsals, I was riding horses and now I’m just running around a lot,” she says. “If I feel like I’m losing too much weight, I’ll eat some more. But I need to watch it for the wardrobe because (weight) goes on fast, especially now during menopause.”

Spoken like a woman who's found her voice.

Blake Shelton admits he ‘can’t wait to hit the road' amid ongoing marriage speculation with Gwen Stefani

The voice coach is gearing up for his back to the honky tonk tour.

blake shelton the voice

Blake Shelton is redirecting his focus to his musical career amidst rumors of marital strife with his wife,  Gwen Stefani.  

The 47-year-old country music star and former The Voice coach is gearing up for his Back to the Honky Tonk Tour, which is set to commence next month.

Blake took to social media to share his excitement about the upcoming tour, highlighting his anticipation to perform alongside artists Dustin Lynch and Emily Ann Roberts. 

"ONE MONTH until we go #BackToTheHonkyTonk!!! Can't wait to hit the road with @Dustin Lynch and @Emily Ann Roberts!!," he posted, alongside a promotional video for the tour.

Amidst this professional high, Blake and his wife Gwen, 54, have been noticeably spending time apart, fueling speculation about potential issues in their relationship.

The couple, known for their affectionate public appearances and collaborations, has recently been focusing on their individual business endeavors.

Gwen, a talented musician and fashion icon, is channeling her energies into her cosmetics line, GXVE Beauty.

She has made a significant move in this venture by filing a trademark application for GS Beauty Bar on November 13, 2023. Her trademark application describes a retail store dealing in professional beauty products, indicating a potential expansion of her business. 

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton at the star ceremony where Gwen Stefani is honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, California on October 19, 2023.

GXVE Beauty, launched in March 2022, has garnered considerable attention and is steadily growing its fan base.

However, the couple's separate focuses have raised concerns among fans about the state of their marriage. 

In late December, Gwen's decision to remove all photos of Blake from her social media profiles prompted worried reactions from fans, with many inquiring about the status of their relationship.

 "What happened to all the videos of you and Blake?" one fan asked, highlighting the noticeable absence of their shared content.

Adding to the speculation, Blake and Gwen spent New Year's Eve separately. While Blake performed at a pre-taped show in Nashville, Gwen hosted a party in Las Vegas.

 In an interview with Access Hollywood, Gwen shared, "Well, it's funny because I was going to be at his show, and then Vegas called and wanted me to be in Vegas... Last year I did Vegas, and I was like: 'Remind me to never do Vegas again.' But you sometimes want to... not be the host."

Observations by body language expert Inbaal Honigan suggest a shift in the couple's dynamic. 

Kingston Rossdale, Gwen Stefani, Apollo Rossdale, Blake Shelton and Zuma Rossdale at the star ceremony where Gwen Stefani is honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, California on October 19, 2023.

Inbaal noted to HELLO! that Blake's recent tendency to keep his hands in his pockets during public appearances contrasts sharply with their earlier romantic interactions. 

“For a man who formerly missed no opportunity to touch his beloved, this isn't a comforting sign,” she said. 

During the CMT Awards, both Blake and Gwen's reserved body language, despite smiling, raised further questions. "Some couples are more tactile than others, and that is fine. But a couple who used to be all over each other and now aren't, are likely going through tough times romantically,” Inbaal concluded.
