Blake Shelton Hires The Voice’s Gwen Sebastian For His Band

The Voice coach, Blake Shelton picked powerhouse singer, Erin Willet over Gwen Sebastian in last night’s battle round (the two sang Pat Benatar’s “We Belong”), but it may be the country singer, Gwen, who got the better end of the deal.

Country Weekly is reporting that the North Dakota native has been hired by Blake to join his touring band for several dates including his appearance at the April 1 ACM Awards on CBS. SCORE!

Gwen plans on having fun on tour. “He has a big heart and an infectious laugh,” she says of her coach. “Plus, he’s pretty darn funny!”
