Blake Shelton Hitting The Big Screen In Angry Birds Movie

(Radio.com) Blake Shelton will be hitting the big screen for the upcoming Angry Birds movie. Not only does Shelton voice a character in the film, but he also contributes music.

As Earl, a pig with a country bent, Shelton found he had to go above and beyond to get the right accent. "They kept saying, 'More country!'" Shelton told Entertainment Weekly. "I felt like I was doing a voice-over for Dukes of Hazzard."

If landing the right voice for Earl was difficult, Shelton found that he faced even bigger challenges when it came to writing a song for the film. "I can write things about myself and my life," Shelton said. "But I don't have a whole lot of experience being shot out of a slingshot at pigs." Read more here.
