The new season of “The Voice” kicks off tonight and veteran coach Blake Shelton has some words of wisdom for new coach Miley Cyrus—keep your hands off Blake’s country contestants!  Blake says if she thinks that she’s just gonna take these artists from him without a fight, she’s got another thing coming!  You can catch Blake squaring off against Miley, Alicia Keys and Adam Levine tonight at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.

You’ll need to start saving your Christmas money now for all the holiday albums that are coming out faster than toys from Santa’s workshop!  Jennifer Nettles is getting some superstar help To Celebrate Christmas this year, as she releases her first solo holiday collection on October 28.  Idina Menzel, who’s perhaps best known as the voice of Elsa from Frozen, joins Jennifer for “Little Drummer Boy,” while Andra Day helps fuel a jazz-infused version of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentleman.”  Also included is Jennifer’s take on Kenny Loggins’ “Celebrate Me Home,” which she performed on last year’s CMA Country Christmas special.  To Celebrate Christmas is available for pre-order at the usual digital outlets.

Trisha Yearwood has come out with her own signature fragrance just in time to place under the Christmas tree.  It is now available at Walmart and it comes as both a perfume and body mist.  Hey ladies…if it’s good enough to attract Garth Brooks, it should be good enough for your man!
