Looks like the rest of the world is now learning why we country fans love [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Blake Shelton[/lastfm] so much! His good looks, charm and sense of humor on NBC’s The Voice,  has already made him far more recognizable to people outside the world of country music.  Even Blake is surprised how quickly this new show has  taken off, and thinks maybe his popularity is due to the fact that he is ‘the smart one’ of the 4 seat-swiveling coaches! Watch Blake explain in this funny video interview about his role on the show!

Here is the always funny BS’r explaining his role on The Voice!

Referring to The Voice, Blake Shelton tells AOL’s The Boot:

“Last [Wednesday] night was the first night I was in Nashville by myself in my truck, I’ve been in the studio all week working. I’ve kind of been in a hole, and had not seen a lot of people. So, I went to the Tiger Mart/Exxon across the highway, and this was at one o’clock in the morning after I got out of the studio. I walked in there and grabbed a bag of Cheez-Its or something, and I put them up on the counter. I guess it’s just because it’s country music, a lot of my following has mostly been white people, and there was a cute black girl who was running the cash register. She looked at me and she kind of made this — she didn’t scream — but it was kind of a ‘HEY!’ I said, ‘Hey.’ She said, ‘Are you that guy from that show?’ I said, ‘Yeah, you’re damn right I am!’ It was just so odd to me, because it shows you the power of television,that’s somebody that probably [wouldn’t have known who I was], and she even told me, ‘Man, I don’t listen to country music at all, but I think that’s a cool show and you’re funny on it, and would you take a picture with me?’ It’s amazing the impact that thing has already had.”
