LUKE BRYAN, BLAKE SHELTON: Gearing Up for Team "Bluke"

Luke Bryan will join the the upcoming season of The Voice, as a mentor for Blake Shelton's team.

According to Nashville's Tennessean, this isn't the first time Blake asked Luke for the help, but it is the first time his schedule has allowed for it. Luke says, “I think I get lost in the shuffle in the media of the guy who dances on stage. I think people don’t realize that I moved to town, wrote songs and got a record deal. Early in my career, I was so nervous about big moments, I didn’t even enjoy them. I just want to help these people settle into who they are and enjoy the moment.”

Luke's episodes were filmed last week.
