Blake Shelton is proving his love of traditional country with his upcoming Friends and Heroes Tour. The Oklahoma native will kick off his 2021 Friends and Heroes Tour on August 18, with Martina McBride, Tracy Byrd and Trace Adkins, along with special guest Lindsay Ell, joining him on the road.
“A little over a year ago when the world shut down and we had to postpone the tour, I was already in Omaha getting ready for the show that night,” Shelton recalls. “I told you we would be back, and I’m thrilled to say we are kicking off the Friends and Heroes 2021 Tour in Omaha. I’m giving everybody in every city plenty of notice – you might as well tell your boss you’re gonna be late to work the next day and pay that babysitter overtime, because we are going to play some country music for y’all until they turn on the lights.
“And that might not stop us!” he added. “I’m excited to welcome Martina McBride, Tracy Byrd, Trace Adkins and my very special guest Lindsay Ell to the Friends and Heroes 2021 Tour… see you there!”

Shelton’s tour announcement comes only a few days before the release of his highly-anticipated Body Language album, which will be released on Friday, May 21.
“We’ve been working on this album on and off for two years now, and I’m very proud of what we have put together,” Shelton said of the record. “We certainly had some unique challenges with the pandemic, but we also had a lot of fun. We explored new sounds while making sure to get in some classic country. I’m also thrilled to have my buddies The Swon Brothers featured on the title track as both co-writers and vocalists. Can’t wait for y’all to hear it!”
