|NASHVILLE, Tenn. – When Blake Shelton joins his friend Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, there’s no telling what will happen. From venturing out to a sushi restaurant, to Shelton getting his haircut live on camera or Fallon joining him on stage for a performance, it’s always an adventure. The fun continues Thursday, Sept. 8, when The Tonight Show welcomes Shelton back for his first in-person appearance since the pandemic.|
In addition to being lead guest, Shelton will perform his new single, “No Body” (LISTEN HERE). Released just two weeks ago, “No Body” became the most added song at country radio upon impact and is currently nearing the Top 30. MusicRow praised the throwback single as “deliriously catchy” with “thumpin’ rhythm, sassy lyric, snappy attitude and production perfection… [plus] the voice of one of our finest country singers…”
“It’s been a while since I’ve been able to do the show in person, so it will be fun and we’ll see what crap Fallon has planned on Thursday!” laughed Shelton. “It will be the first time the band and will play ‘No Body’ on TV, so that always brings some extra excitement and nerves.”
Shelton will head to Nashville following his New York trip, where he will perform on both shows of the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday, Sept 10. The beloved entertainer is celebrating his 12th year as an Opry member.
