Blake Shelton, Kane Brown

It’s official – Kane Brown will join Blake Shelton as a Battle Advisor on the upcoming season of NBC’s The Voice.

The news was officially announced on Monday (Oct. 5) after Shelton teased his Advisor on Instagram over the weekend by offering fans two clues about the artist and asking them to guess who it is.

For the first clue, the “Happy Anywhere” singer listed four artists and said that his Advisor has collaborated with all of the artists listed but one. The artists were John Legend, Ava Max, Lauren Alaina and Maren Morris.

All signs pointed to Kane Brown as he has collaborated with each artist mentioned, except Maren Morris.

For the second clue, Shelton had his Advisor sing a snippet of Uncle Kracker’s song “Follow Me.”

“Here’s clue No. 2 for your guys, my Advisor is gonna sing a little something for you,” Shelton shared.

Brown’s distinctive voice was a dead giveaway and fans immediately knew he was the one joining Shelton on the new season.

After making the official announcement on Monday, Shelton teased Brown, asking him why he chose to sing an Uncle Kracker song and not one of his own. Brown then decided to sing one of Shelton’s biggest hits – “Ole Red.”

“Alright,” Shelton quipped with excitement as Brown sang the beloved tune.
