Blake taps The Band Perry for his 'Voice' mentors

We mentioned earlier that Miranda Lambert would be working with Shakira this season on The Voice, against her husband, Blake Shelton.

Well, Blake won't exactly be working with any slouches, tapping Country Performing group The Band Perry as his Battle Round mentors.

“Blake didn’t have to ask us twice if we wanted to mentor his team this season on The Voice,” said The Band Perry in a statement. “It was so much fun to work with Team Blake, and after 15 years of receiving plenty of ‘constructive criticism,’ it was our turn to pay it forward. We just hope we were as helpful to Blake’s team as our own mentors have been to us through the years.”

NBC’s The Voice makes its season debut on Feb. 24 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

And look for The Band Perry on the 40th Anniversary re-mastered edition of Elton John’s iconic Goodbye Yellow Brick Road album with their version of “Grey Seal.” The album hits stores March 24.
