This is Blake’s second headlining tour following last year’s sold out Well Lit & Amplified Tour. The reigning CMA's Entertainer of the Year and three-peat Male Vocalist of the Year is celebrating nine consecutive No.1 singles, 14 overall, including his hit “Sure Be Cool If You Did”, and three-peat wins on NBC’s hit show The Voice. His recent No. 1 smash single, “Boys ‘Round Here”, marked his fastest rising single to date. Both singles are off his new album “Based On A True Story…” which Us Weekly gave 3 ½ out of a 4 star review. “My fans, country radio, friends, family, you name it - they know I love to perform. With The Voice schedule, I was not able to go out and perform as much as I wanted last year but I plan to make up for it this year,” Blake said with a devilish smirk. “This summer is going to be a blast. I want everyone at my shows to leave feeling like they got every penny’s worth of their ticket. I am going to give them every ounce of me on that stage because they deserve it. My fans are die hard country fans, they love to laugh and have a good time and I’m going to join them in what truly will be the Ten Times Crazier Tour.”
