DURANT, Okla., (December 6, 2021) – Choctaw Casino & Resort – Durant is excited to welcome back country superstar Blake Shelton as he will perform live at the Grand Theater on Saturday, January 29, 2022!

Shelton continues to add to his superstar status with the deluxe version of his new album Body Language. The album features four new tracks, including his current single “Come Back As A Country Boy.” Body Language Deluxe features his platinum-selling 28th country radio chart-topper, “Happy Anywhere” featuring Gwen Stefani. Prior to “Happy Anywhere” Shelton celebrated a two-time platinum, multi-week No. 1 with “Nobody But You,” which has now surpassed 280 million streams. The single made its TV debut on the 62nd Grammy Awards, where Shelton was also nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for his hit “God’s Country.” The four-time platinum smash earned the 2019 CMA Award and 2020 ACM Award for Single of the Year. As his award wins approach the hundreds, Shelton remains a force in the industry with ACM (5), AMA (3), CMA (10), CMT (11) and People’s Choice Awards (6), among many others.
