The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board today announced that award-winning singer, songwriter, and television personality Blake Shelton will sign bottles of Smithworks® Vodka at the Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection store in Hershey Square Shopping Center, Hummelstown, Dauphin County, on Saturday, July 8, at 5:00 PM.
Shelton’s appearance celebrates the July 8 debut of Smithworks Vodka in Pennsylvania. Smithworks Vodka, which just earned a gold medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition, is made with corn from Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma, and water from Lake Fort Smith, Arkansas. It was initially launched in Arkansas, Colorado, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma in March 2016, and recently Nashville in June 2017.
Numbered wristbands will be made available Saturday, July 8 at the Hummelstown Fine Wine & Good Spirits Premium Collection store to the first 150 people who purchase a bottle of Smithworks Vodka and want to attend the 5 p.m. bottle signing. Each customer must be present to obtain a wristband, and only one wristband will be available per person who purchases at least one bottle of Smithworks Vodka.
Blake Shelton regrets he will be unable to sign any personal items and will only sign up to two pre-purchased bottles of Smithworks Vodka for each person with a wristband. No one under 21 years of age may participate in this bottle signing. Attendees are asked to present only pre-purchased Smithworks Vodka bottles for signature and may not bring large bags, purses, or backpacks to the event. Photographs taken of event attendees with Blake will be provided to each attendee, so no photographs with personal cameras or mobile devices will be permitted.
Country Music Association’s 2012 Entertainer of the Year, five-time Male Vocalist of the Year winner, and Grammy Award nominee Blake Shelton is the reigning and five-time champion coach on the Emmy Award-winning television show “The Voice.” His most recent album, “If I’m Honest,” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart and the Billboard Country Album Chart, and is the best-selling country album release of 2016. The album features three songs written by Shelton, including the gospel-tinged “Savior’s Shadow,” “Friends” (which was featured in “The Angry Birds Movie,” for which Shelton provided a voice), and “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” a song he wrote and performs with Gwen Stefani.
A member of the Grand Ole Opry, Shelton earned a host of awards throughout his career, which most recently include Favorite Country Male Artist at the American Music Awards as well as the first-ever Male Artist of the Year. In 2017, he became the first country artist to win Favorite Album at the People’s Choice Awards in addition to his win for Favorite Male Country Artist. In May, Shelton won the 2017 Billboard Music Award for Top Country Artist, and he was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for Top Country Album. In June, he won the 2017 CMT Music Award for Male Video of the Year. He recently wrapped up his headlining 2017 “Doing It To Country Songs” Tour.
