It appears that the chemistry Blake Shelton shares with his fellow coach Shakira on the set of The Voice has followed them into the studio. Shakira recently tweeted a photo of the two of the them together in the studio working on what is presumably a new collaboration for Shakira's upcoming album, which is due out in March. Shakira will again appear alongside Blake as a coach on Season 6 of The Voice, with Usher and Adam Levine also returning to the red coaching chairs. This season, Team Shakira will actually get help from Blake's wife, Miranda Lambert, who will act as the celebrity advisor for her team. The Band Perry will act as advisors to Blake's team this season. Season 6 of The Voice will premiere on February 24 at 8 PM ET on NBC.

A new member will be joining Brantley Gilbert's headlining "Let It Ride Tour," but this member won't be hitting the stage alongside opening acts Eric Paslay and Thomas Rhett. Gilbert recently posted a photo on his Facebook page of him with his new black and white puppy name Sylo. And Brantley has promised to post many more adorable pics of his new furry friend. Gilbert said in the caption for the photo, "No reason y'all shouldn't get to watch this little guy grow up too....How about a pic every week?? His name is Sylo...."   (Photo credit: )

As part of the fun surrounding the release of his new album, High Noon, Jerrod Niemann is releasing an interactive western-style mini-movie that features him as the hero of the High Noon Saloon. The video trailer for the humorous new mini-movie debuted at yesterday. The film takes elements, song titles and themes from the High Noon album and works them into a Wild West adventure between Niemann, a donkey and a villain named Big Bad Les James. Jerrod says of the new mini-movie, "It takes place at the High Noon Saloon, where I basically wake up after a rough night and have to put the pieces back together about what happened the night before.

Today's More's Mystery

September 14, 2014...........Looking for a singer/actor........

1.  Before this multiple Grammy Award-winner became a singer/actor, he was a radio dee jay.

2.  He is still another example of a pretentious singer who goes by only one name.

3.  We have to assume he is not a big fan of Fox News..............Bill O'Reilly in particular.

Answer:  Ludacris

In August, 2002, political pundit Bill O'Reilly called for all Americans to boycott Pepsi products.  Ludacris was a spokesperson for Pepsi.  O'Reilly said Ludacris' lyrics glamorized a "life of guns, violence, drugs and disrespect of women".  The next day, O'Reilly reported that Pepsi had fired Ludacris.
