    Blake Shelton may seem like a laconic fellow, but behind that casual country ‘tude, there’s obviously a lot of drive that lets him keep three irons in the fire—namely, the imminent arrivals of a new album, a new season of The Voice, and his annual hosting stint for the Academy of Country Music Awards.

    March 4, 2013 2:57 PM ET | Yahoo Reality Rocks

    The Voice's" breakout star Terry McDermott may have placed second on Season 3, but he's done quite all right for himself since leaving the show--and it all came together organically for him, in a way that never would have happened if he'd been tied to a record label.
