Name: Blake Shelton
AKA: "Mr. Miranda Lambert"
What Kind of Music Is It? Reality country.
Have I Heard Any of His Songs? You may know him from such songs as "Hillbilly Bone" or "Some Beach," in which case you have our pity.
Does He Know What "The Shocker" Is? You know he does.
Appropriate Controlled Substance(s) for Pre-Show Raging? 3.2 beer and a tack hammer.
Can I Wear My Affliction T-Shirt? Oh, give it a rest. Rodeo's almost over.
Will There Be Chicks There? Shelton's pretty popular with the ladies, though nowadays they probably want to use him to meet Adam Lambert.
Will We Get into a Fight? Sure. Miranda's bound to be hanging around there somewhere.
Best Song(s) to Leave to Take a Dump? "She Wouldn't Be Gone, God Gave Me You."
Check Out the Show or Stay Home and Watch The Voice? At least with The Voice you get at least two dozen gratuitous Christina Aguilera cleavage shots.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
