Blake Shelton Re-Ups With Warner Music Nashville

Country superstar and “Voice” coach Blake Shelton has been a Warner Bros. / Warner Music Nashville recording artist for 17 years, and Wednesday night he signed a deal that means he’ll be with the label for even longer. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“I remember my first trip to Nashville in 1994,” said Shelton. “I drove down Music Row and don’t know why, but when I passed the Warner Bros. building I said, ‘That’s the label I want to be on!’ Now, all these years later, I’m proud to have spent my entire recording career with such a great company. I look forward to more incredible years with my Warner family.”

Blake Shelton is a cornerstone artist for Warner Music Nashville,” said label chairman and CEO Mike Esposito. “Blake, [manager] Narvel Blackstock and the whole label team put a stake in the ground years ago to prove that Blake was going to do unprecedented things in this business and be the artist to help us bring Warner back to greatness. Blake indeed has and will continue to break new ground. I am thrilled beyond words, and there is no better Christmas present than Blake committing to Warner for many years to come. He is a brother, and I love him and his humanity!” Shelton’s recent “Texoma Shore” album became his sixth record to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.
