Blake Shelton Turns Barbecue Pizza Man
During an interview with Our Country on the set of a Pizza Hut commercial advertising the new barbecue line, Shelton made it clear that he walks it like he talks it in regards to the new flavors, one of which bears his name, "Blake's Smokehouse," and he cites as his favorite variety ("It's like a meat-lover's version of barbecue pizza").
"I'm actually a fan of this idea, barbecue pizza," Shelton said. "I'm having a lot of fun working with the Pizza Hut people. They're so much fun to be around. Their headquarters is in Dallas, and that's basically right outside of where I live anyway, so we already have a lot in common."
According to Bloomberg, Pizza Hut is citing the barbecue campaign as a "huge launch," with the TV spots scheduled to roll out on May 18.
The country singer's love for Pizza Hut can be traced back as far as 2010, when Smoking Gun revealed a Shelton tour rider from that year that requested "one large Pizza Hut 'Meat Lovers or Stuffed Crust Supreme pizza'" backstage after every show. more on this story
