It could be argued that Shelton, who celebrated his 35th birthday Saturday, stole the show thanks to his big voice and outsize personality. Mainstream TV viewers are learning about the Oklahoma native’s quirks and edgy worldview on “The Voice,” but Shelton truly shines when belting the pride in “Kiss My Country Ass,” the nostalgia of “Home” and the stubborn romance of “Austin.”
What’s more, new bride Miranda Lambert made a surprise cameo and sang “Hillbilly Bone” with Shelton, her own rendition of Joan Jett’s “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” and a sing-along of “Happy Birthday” (in which Shelton was christened “Mr. Lambert”).
Country music star and Voice coach Blake Shelton is getting a small taste of fatherhood while working with the up and coming artists on the hit NBC reality show. But after having to send home two contestants during this week’s show — and the sudden boom in his career — the newlywed says that he and wife Miranda Lambert are holding off on plans to start a family.
“We talked about it a couple of times — just enough to say, ‘You know what? We need to revisit this later,'” Blake reveals to Access Hollywood.
Just married last month before 550 of their closest family and friends, Shelton and Lambert are still getting used to being Mr. & Mrs., and working on their careers.
“My thing is taking up all my time right now,” explains Blake, 34, “and her career is taking up all of her time, and it just doesn’t seem like the right time right now.
“I’m sure at some point it’ll happen, but I don’t know when,” Shelton adds.
So, no baby yet, but in the meantime, we’re looking forward to lots more music (and The Voice) from Blake and Miranda.
In fact, Blake Shelton’s new album, Red River Blue, drops on July 12.

Miranda Lambert has more than one new union to talk about right now — in addition to her May marriage to fellow country singer Blake Shelton, she’s also been in the studio with her new trio, Pistol Annies.
Lambert says the group — comprised of fellow singer songwriters Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley — provides an outlet for different aspects of her creativity. She talked about Pistol Annies, her new hubby and her relationship with her fans before going onstage at LP Field Sunday night during the CMA Music Festival.
You’ve been incredibly busy. You just released a single, but it isn’t a Miranda Lambert single, it’s a Pistol Annies single (“Hell on Heels”). Can you talk about going back and forth between the projects?
It’s been crazy. I did start a band, Pistol Annies, a couple of years ago. We were in the studio a couple of months ago. We did six tracks and then we decided to do a full album so we went back in. Then this last week I’ve been in the studio working on my own new record and then the last day of that recording we added on Pistol Annies. So, it’s been all over the map creatively, but it’s so good for me.
It gets my creative juices flowing when I have the girls. It took a lot of work and my manager did a great job. We really wanted to capitalize on this big night, and I get to have the girls with me. Our single “Hell on Heels” came out on our website (PistolAnnies.com, Sunday). It’s not on iTunes yet, but we’re working on that. It’s been really fun. It’s been cool to have to balance the two and really focus on just music the last month. It’s just been straight recording with me in the studio. I’m really excited.
Can you talk about CMA Fest this week and your fan club party?
We did a fan club party this morning. There were 500 people there. The first fan club party I ever had was seven years ago or maybe eight. It was 15 people at the Residence Inn on Elm Hill Pike and we had pizza, so it’s definitely changed a lot since then.
But I also had the girls Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley from Pistol Annies there and we sang to my fans and we sang some songs to my fan club. Your fan club is your core. They are the ones that go out and spread the word about your music and so now they’re on the Pistol Annies bandwagon, which is great. And tonight we get to get up on the stage. Even in soundcheck today, we were just looking out at that stadium and it’s just so huge and it’s really exciting to be in front of that many country music fans at one time.
Last night the girls recorded a short video before heading out onstage to perform at the CMA Music Festival they want everyone to go out and get Heel On Heels!
