Elvis All-Star Tribute Show Host: Blake Shelton is hosting the event, with Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich as the executive producer. Ehrlich reportedly told the audience, “We’re taking you back to 1968. I want you to think back to what that night must have been like to Elvis Presley fans. The record hits had stopped coming. He hadn’t performed in front of an audience in eight years. This was the show he came back.” Host Blake Shelton is one of the performers as well and he is set to put on a performance of “Suspicious Minds”. According to The Tennessean, Shelton gushed over Presley and being able to host the tribute event, saying, “Elvis is one of the reasons that country music got to be so cool. Because he was a country guy, he was a rock guy, he was R&B. It was a little bit of everything, and that’s why everybody loved him.”
