Blake Shelton's "If I'm Honest" album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart and the Billboard Country Album Chart, and is the best-selling country album release of 2016. It featured two #1 smash hits, "Came Here to Forget" and "A Guy With a Girl," the latter of which became his 23rd chart-topping song. The album features three songs written by Shelton, including the gospel-tinged "Savior's Shadow," "Friends," which is also featured in the "The Angry Birds Movie," and "Go Ahead and Break My Heart," a song he wrote and performs with Gwen Stefani.
A member of the Grand Ole Opry, Shelton has earned a host of awards throughout his career, which most recently include Favorite Country Male Artist at the American Music Awards as well as the first-ever Male Artist of the Year.

New Jersey-born multiple Grammy Award-nominated multiplatinum artist, songwriter and producer Charlie Puth catapulted to superstardom in 2016 at light speed. He maintained this perpetual motion with the 2017 single "Attention," which he appropriately wrote and produced on a Japanese bullet train. Following the song's debut at a groundbreaking Los Angeles music exhibit dubbed #THEATTENTIONROOM, critical applause exploded, with The New York Times proclaiming it "a savage takedown rendered in pinpoint 1980s soft-soul haze smacked hard by glossy funk." The song cracked 3 million Spotify streams in just a week, and its sexy music video racked up over 5 million views in under 24 hours.
Puth's first album "Nine Track Mind," which was recently certified platinum, made a remarkable chart debut upon its 2016 release, hitting #5 on Billboard's Top Current Albums Chart, fueled by 2x RIAA platinum-certified top 40 smashes, "One Call Away" and "Marvin Gaye (featuring Meghan Trainor)," as well as the platinum-certified "We Don't Talk Anymore (featuring Selena Gomez)." A worldwide phenomenon, the album reached #1 on iTunes charts in 28 countries around the globe.
Puth first exploded onto the music scene as a songwriter, producer and vocalist on Wiz Khalifa's "See You Again," the emotional tribute to Paul Walker in "Furious 7." The song has officially entered the history books as one of the decade's biggest singles, topping Billboard's Hot 100 for a stunning 12 weeks and has become YouTube's second most popular video of all-time with 2.6 billion-plus views. It won two Billboard Music Awards, a Critic's Choice Award for Best Song, a Hollywood Film Award and two Teen Choice Awards. It also earned a Golden Globe Award nomination in the category of Best Original Song and three Grammy nods, including the prestigious Song of the Year.
A gifted and charismatic live performer, Puth has proven a hugely popular concert attraction, with last year's "Nine Track Mind Tour" selling out nearly every date within 30 minutes of its announcement. Puth's new single, "Attention," is certain to be a live-show highlight in his upcoming North American tour. The dates, which see Puth performing as special guest to Shawn Mendes' "Illuminate World Tour," begin July 6 in Portland, Ore., and then travel through late August.
