AceShowbiz - Blake Shelton wowed the crowd, especially ladies, when he took the stage to perform "I'll Name the Dogs" in the latest episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" which aired on December 4. Host Ellen DeGeneres introduced his performance by saying, "It's not everyday that we get to have the reigning Sexiest Man Alive on our show twice in one month."
The scene then changed to show Blake strumming his guitar with the lights flashing behind him. The singer flawlessly sang the Gwen Stefani-inspired song as the female audience could be heard cheering loudly. "I'll hang the pictures, you hang the stars/ You pick the paint, I'll pick the guitar," he rhymed. "Sing you a song out there with crickets and frogs/ You name the babies and I'll name the dogs."
After the performance, Ellen came to the stage to say, "So much sexier. Even sexier than last time," gaining a loud cheer from the audience. "Listen. He was just here a couple weeks ago," she continued. "He's even sexier today than he was a couple weeks ago," to which Blake jokingly responded, "I'm fatter today."
"I'll Name the Dogs" is one of the tracks off Blake's eleventh studio album "Texoma Shore", which was released on November 3. The effort launched at No. 4 on Billboard 200 chart with 63,000 equivalent album units. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Blake revealed that he initially didn't plan to release the album at all.
"I had no plans of putting out an album this year at all," so he said. "I planned on still being in the middle of releasing music off 'If I'm Honest' and that was the plan. That was the label's plan and the manager's plan, and I called one day and said, 'Hey guys, when this current single run its course, screw it. Let's come out with a new album.' "
