Blake Shelton last appeared in K-Hawk Country in August of 2016 when he headlined the Back Porch Revival at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. If you've been anxiously awaiting his return to the stage in our area, you're being rewarded today.

The Freaks are coming! Hey, those aren't my words, those are Blake Shelton's. He's hitting the road in 2018 and he's calling it the "Country Music Freaks Tour!" These aren't freaks, though, they're hitmakers. The biggest of all is, of course, Blake Shelton. He has more than two dozen number one songs to his credit and a new album (Texoma Shore) being released this Friday, November 3. He could play hit songs for hours, but he's bringing some other proven stars to this party.
