    • Blake Shelton Tweets Excitement About New Duet with Ashley Monroe, “Lonely Tonight”

      Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleBlake Shelton‘s new duet with Ashley Monroe, “Lonely Tonight,” has already hit #1 on the iTunes Country Songs chart. Blake tweeted a screenshot of the chart Wednesday with the message, “Sooo…I’m guessing he word is out about my duet with Ashley Monroe…. Happy happy joy joy!!!”

      “Lonely Tonight” and Blake’s current hit, “Neon Light,” are both included on his new album, Bringing Back the Sunshine, coming out September 30.

      In other Blake news, he and fellow The Voice coach Gwen Stefani engaged in an epic lip sync battle with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Blake showed off his tap dancing skills while lip syncing to “Puttin’ on the Ritz” by Taco, but his gender-reversing performance with Gwen on Diana Ross and Lionel Richie‘s “Endless Love” convinced Fallon to throw in the towel and declare Blake and Gwen the winners.

      Gwen and Blake join Adam Levine and Pharrell Williams as coaches on the new season of The Voice premiering Monday night at 8 ET on NBC.
