Michael Buble Joins Team Blake

blake shelton

Blake Shelton is bringing a powerful vocalist on Team Blake next season. Blake invited Michael Buble to serve as an advisor on NBC’s The Voice’s third season, which premieres September 10th. The pair were caught taping together in Los Angeles this week. Last season, Blake had Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert serve as advisors to his team. Blake’s Jermaine Paul was crowned the winner of The Voice’s second season.

This isn’t the first time the pair have teamed up together – they sang a duet in 2008 on a David Foster special.

Blake recorded his own version of Michael’s “Home” with his wife Miranda Lambert singing backing vocals in 2008.  Watch the music video below and let us know what you think of this new team. Will you be cheering for a second Team Blake victory in a row?

Kellie Pickler is one busy woman these days. While she gets ready to release her brand new studio album “100 Proof” on January 24th, she has found some time to enjoy the holiday season this year. She will be all over television for the Christmas season, including both the CMA Country Christmas special and a guest appearance on Michael Buble‘s Christmas special.

Tonight, catch Kellie performing “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree” on the CMA Country Christmas special airing at 9 pm EST on ABC. Next week, Kellie will join Michael Buble on his first holiday special “A Michael Buble Christmas.” Her duet with Michael on “White Christmas” airs on Tuesday, December 6th.

“Michael and the entire cast was so warm and welcoming,” said Kellie. “They made me feel all ‘Buble,’” she laughed

Kellie Pickler is anxious to release her new album in January, which she feels showcases her more traditional country roots. “100 Proof” was influenced by artists like Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette.

Halloween might not even be over yet, but that doesn’t mean some stars can’t get fans into the Christmas spirit. Michael Buble posted a behind the scenes video with David Foster of their recording of “White Christmas” with Shania Twain for Michael’s Christmas album out next week. Michael and David take us into the studio of the recording of the track.

Michael’s Christmas album, appropriately titled “Christmas,” hits stores next week. Shania is the only country artist on the album. Doesn’t Shania sound amazing?

Watch the video below and let us know what your favorite Christmas song is by country artists:

Shania Twain Teaming up with Michael Buble

Looks like Michael Buble really is a country music fan. A few years after letting Blake Shelton record a country version of his hit song “Home,” Buble has agreed to be part of another country music project… this time with fellow Canadian Shania Twain, CTV is reporting.

The pair have recorded a duet version of “White Christmas” for Buble’s Christmas album, which he sounds to be pretty excited about.

“There’s a couple duets that I really like,” Buble said of the new collection. “One with Shania Twain, which is really fantastic. ’White Christmas,’ we did. We did it bouncy. I was inspired by ‘Home Alone,’ the Drifters.”

There has been no official release date for the album as of today, however, it’s pretty safe to assume it will be out for this Holiday season. The album will be produced by David Foster and Bob Rock. The track list hasn’t yet been finalized, but other songs already recorded include “Jingle Bells” with the U.K. swing trio the Puppini Sisters, “Blue Christmas,” and his version of Mariah Carey’s hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Buble also has an original tune penned for the record.

Buble previously released a Christmas EP in 2003, but says that this is what he wanted to do when he established himself as an artist.
