“Man, I’m just so excited about 2016,” Shelton said.  “We’ve got a new album coming and I can’t wait to get back out on the road and play some new music for my fans.  As an artist, my favorite thing to do is go on the road and play shows.  I’ve missed it, and it’s gonna be like old times.  So y’all get ready to party, ‘cause Blake Shelton is comin to see ya’!”
