Blake Shelton is one of eight artists who will debut new music videos this weekend during CMT’s Big New Music Weekend. Blake says if you like his song, “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” you’ll love his video. Blake said ... “And I’ll tell you why. There’s not a lot of shots of me in the video and there’s lots of shots of really hot girls in their underwear walking around the house. Which, I was informed, I couldn’t have any interaction with on or off camera. So I didn’t even get to see the girls until the video was put together.” Blake, Sara Evans, Brad Paisley, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Jaron and The Long Road To Love, Brett Eldredge and Christian Kane will all debut new videos this weekend as part of CMT’s Big New Music Weekend which kicks off at 6 AM Eastern Friday and runs through Sunday.

Brad Paisley is the national spokesperson for the Kids Wish Network 2010 Corvette Dream Giveway.

Since then, Brad has recorded promotional videos and supports the charity as much as possible. Brad says, “What could be better than helping lots of dreams come true for these deserving children, through a chance for Corvette enthusiasts to win their dream.” Proceeds will benefit the Kids Wish Network's Hero program, whose mission is to bring smiles to the faces of children in hospitals, abuse shelters, homeless shelters, and other pediatric care facilities across the country. Tickets to enter the Corvette Dream Giveaway are just 10-dollars and can be purchased by visiting Kidswishnetwork.org/winthevettes.
