Blake Shelton won The Voice nine times over his 23 seasons on the show. His final champion was country singer Bryce Leatherwood from Season 22.
During the finale, Shelton and Leatherwood performed “Hillbilly Bone” together. Shelton released the song as a duet with Trace Adkins in 2009. It hit #1 on the Hot Country Songs chart.
Shelton is known for maintaining relationships with his Voice contestants after they leave the show. He brings them on tour, features them on his songs, and promotes their shows. Many of those shows take place at Shelton’s various Ole Red restaurants across the country.
When Shelton retired from The Voice at the end of Season 23, all nine of his champions and other past members of Team Blake returned to pay tribute to him. That speaks to how much of an impact he had as a coach on the show!
Shelton recently paid a visit to his Ole Red location in Orlando, Florida. He performed a set including some of his signature songs, such as “God’s Country” and “Boys Round Here.”
Partway through his set, Shelton thrilled the crowd by reuniting with Leatherwood onstage. Of course, they knew they had to sing “Hillbilly Bone” again!
“Always an honor getting to share the stage with the king himself @blakeshelton,” Leatherwood wrote next to a video of their performance he shared on Instagram. “What an incredible night in Orlando Florida at @olered.”
Ole Red commented on Leatherwood’s video, writing, “Yee-haw,” along with a cowboy smiley face emoji.
