NASHVILLE, TN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- CMA Entertainer of the Year and Grammy nominee Blake Shelton will embark on a headlining tour of the U.S. beginning July 19 in Virginia Beach, VA. The Ten Times Crazier Tour, which features special guest Mercury Recording artist, Easton Corbin, and ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year nominee, Jana Kramer, will criss-cross the country this summer.

Confirmed tour dates are listed below.

This is Blake's second headlining tour following last year's sold out Well Lit & Amplified Tour. The CMA's Entertainer of the Year and three-peat Male Vocalist of the Year is coming off seven consecutive No.1 singles, 12 overall, back-to-back wins on NBC's hit show The Voice and is already celebrating his Top 20 new single, "Sure Be Cool If You Did," which Entertainment Weekly calls "ludicrously catchy" with an A- rating. "Sure Be Cool If You Did" is Blake's fastest rising single to date and is the first new single off his yet to be announced new album being released this spring. His recent Christmas album, Cheers, It's Christmas, received 4 1/2 of 5 stars in People Magazine and The New York Times has said "...he's becoming the most important and visible ambassador from Nashville to the American mainstream."

"My fans, country radio, friends, family, you name it -- they know I love to perform. With The Voice schedule, I was not able to go out and perform as much as I wanted last year but I plan to make up for it this year," Blake said with a devilish smirk. "This summer is going to be a blast. I want everyone at my shows to leave feeling like they got every penny's worth of their ticket. I am going to give them every ounce of me on that stage because they deserve it. My fans are die hard country fans, they love to laugh and have a good time and I'm going to join them in what truly will be the Ten Times Crazier Tour."

GRAMMY nominated Blake Shelton is CMA Awards' Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year for his third consecutive year. Blake is one of the "most versatile of contemporary country singers" (The New York Times). He has been nominated for five GRAMMY® Awards, including a nod for Red River Blue, the Associated Press calling the album "the best album of his career" as Country Album of the Year, won ACM's Male Vocalist of the Year for a second time, celebrated his seventh consecutive No. 1 single (his twelfth overall), and then made history by winning three consecutive CMA Male Vocalist of the Year awards and Song of the Year with his wife and Grammy winner, Miranda Lambert. Blake's current album, Cheers It's Christmas, features several duet performances with multiple GRAMMY Award winning artists such as Michael Bublé, long-time friend, Reba, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson and a very special duet with his mother, Dorothy Shackleford, which they wrote together. Blake's infectious multi-week No.1 hit, "Honey Bee" holds the record for the fastest-selling digital Platinum single for a male country solo artist.
