When it comes to the perks of being a celebrity, Blake Shelton draws the line at his underwear. “If we ever get to the point where we don’t fold our own towels and underwear, we need to get our asses kicked,” Shelton told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. But that’s not to say that he doesn’t hope to get super uber famous one day. Like maybe Garth-Brooks-doing-a-Vegas-residency famous. “That would be a cool gig, too,” he admitted. “If any of the big casino people are reading this, I’d be up for a big, Garth Brooks-type show in Vegas.” But in the meantime, somewhere between folding his underwear and waiting for that Vegas residency call to come in, Shelton is working on his next album. The newspaper story reports that Shelton cuts two or three songs at different times during the year, so when his record label asks for a new album, he’s practically done.
