Count on Blake Shelton to bring his signature good ol’ country jams to Madison Square Garden this evening. Miranda Lambert’s husband — The Voice coach and the four-time CMA “Male Vocalist of the Year” winner — will take the stage as part of the “Ten Times Crazier Tour.” Featuring openers like the sibling trio of The Band Perry, rising country duo Dan & Shay and fellow country boy Neal McCoy, the night promises to be full of songs about the heartland, loving and leaving, and definitely a few tunes about drinking. Shelton’s superstar wife is currently on tour as well, but she’ll be plying the Oregon Jamboree tonight, so sadly there’s little chance of her joining him onstage. But Shelton is doing fine on his own, just off his fifteenth No. 1 single “Mine Would Be You.” He’s sure to be in top form for this big city show.
