It's been a big week of announcements for Blake Shelton. First came the announcement that The Voice will return to NBC this fall with Blake once again serving as a coach. Blake will be joined by his wife Gwen Stefani, who has been an on-and-off judge since 2014, returning coach John Legend, and new coach Camilla Cabello. Neither Kelly Clarkson nor Ariana Grande will be returning this season.
And then today brought another big announcement for Blake! Blake will be performing for the pre-race concert Sunday at Texas Motor Speedway prior to the All-Star Race. He'll then transition to emcee as he joins good friend and NASCAR on Fox analyst Clint Bowyer for driver introductions. After that, Blake will then take on the role of Grand Marshal and will have the honor of saying the most famous words in motorsports as he will give the command to start engines. Something tells me that Blake is going to take the role of Grand Marshal very seriously. I predict a very memorable "drivers, start your engines!" coming from Blake!
The race will be carried live on FS1.
