Country Icon Blake Shelton Underwent Laser Eye Surgery

Country music icon Blake Shelton underwent laser eye correction Glasgow. The procedure was done last July 15 and he broke the news in Twitter jokingly saying that he couldn’t wait until his death to get the surgery done.

Recovery from the surgery could not take any longer for the country star on account of his busy schedule. He made an announcement two days after surgery saying he has fully recovered to make several more appearances.

The announcement was made with the same amount of humor as his Twitter post saying he can see clearly but will soon lose his vision by night’s end.

He is still scheduled to return to Hollywood later in the year to film the new season of The Voice. He is still tasked to be a judge and a team coach for the television hit singing contest.

Shelton also recently visited the KADA radio station in his home state of Oklahoma and shared his commemorative platinum plaque for his album entitled Based on a True Story.

In the meantime, while waiting for the upcoming The Voice season, Shelton is scheduled to make appearances on several music festivals in the United States.

Blake Shelton, 39, is an American country music singer. He made his debut in 2001 with his first single, “Austin” from the album with the same title.

He has been nominated five times for a Grammy Award.

Shelton, also a television star, is known for his television appearances in singing competitions as a judge for Nashville Star and Clash of the Choirs. His most famous television appearance is on the hit singing competition The Voice wherein he also appears as a judge since the shows inception.
