The country star lends his voice not only to the official soundtrack for Angry Birds Movie but will also be a character in the film.
Shelton plays the role of Earl – an angry pig with a country drawl who wears a cowboy hat. Shelton said the filmmakers wanted him really turn the country on when recording the voice parts.
“They kept saying ‘more country’. I felt like I was doing a voiceover for Dukes of Hazzard.”
He also lends his talents to the track ‘Friends’ which will appear on the official soundtrack for the film. Angry Birds Movie soundtrack will hit store shelves on May 6.
The film hits theaters on May, 20 – conveniently on the same day that Shelton drops his new album ‘If I’m Honest.’
