Blake Shelton has announced a partnership with Propeller and Save the Music for his “Back to Honkey Tonk Tour.” Mr. Shelton will visit Greensboro on his tour at the Greensboro Coliseum on Feb. 23. 

Save the Music is a nonprofit organization that aims to help students, schools and communities reach their full potential through the power of making music. They have helped over 2,000 schools across the United States, by donating instruments and music technology, providing support services for teachers and advocating for school music education. Over the past 25 years, they have helped over 2,500 schools develop music programs and have donated nearly $70 million worth of instruments and technology.

Through Propeller, those attending the show or any fan can help support Save the Music and be entered to win prizes through Shelton’s tour. The prizes include a trip to Blake Shelton’s hometown, Oklahoma City, on March 17, VIP packages, signed merchandise, ticket upgrades and more. 

Propeller is a public benefit corporation that exists to inspire activism and help build movements for change. They have collaborated with artists like Lizzo, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Lil Dicky and more. You can sign petitions, volunteer and fundraise through their corporation, earning more points the bigger impact you make. Those points can then be redeemed for things like planting trees, donating to causes and getting rewards like VIP concerts and trip experiences around the world. Propeller allows artists and partners to directly connect with their audience while making a positive impact.

Through Propeller’s website, you can take action by doing things like discovering more about Save the Music, sharing one of their videos, subscribing to their emails or donating to Save the Music. Every one of these actions will earn you points that you will eventually be able to redeem.

This will be Propeller’s first-ever country tour campaign. With Blake Shelton’s “Body Language” album being released in 2021 and his more recent top chart song “No Body” that was released in August 2022, he has only added to his impressive resumé of music. In a press release, Shelton stated, “I’m proud to announce that my Back to the Honky Tonk Tour will partner with Propeller to support the work of Save the Music, a national nonprofit dedicated to building school music programs in underserved communities.” 

“Music is the greatest healer, and I know my fans will be just as excited as I am to work together to give the gift of music to as many children across the country as possible,” says Shelton. “Music in schools is something I strongly support and believe in, and I’m so glad they are partnering with Propeller to be a part of our tour!”

As a former middle school and high school musician, I know and appreciate the beauty of music education. Many music programs have been underfunded for years and things are only getting worse. These programs are being dropped due to the lack of funding and the lack of value that school systems see in music education.

Fewer and fewer people are joining what music programs are offered to them in the school system because they are not shown the true magic behind creating music. This only causes the programs to shut down, eliminating any chance at all for kids to experience it. Through opportunities like this, with Propeller and Save the Music, children are given the opportunity to see the beauty in magic and experience it within their schools across the country.
