Blake Shelton is no stranger to charming audiences on television.

The country star is a coach on NBC's The Voice and has even helmed his own Christmas special. On Jan. 24, however, the Neon Light singer will be taking on uncharted territory: Saturday Night Live.

On Tuesday Rolling Stone announced that Shelton has been selected as a host for the sketch comedy show, an honor typically afforded to celebrities in the prime of their careers.

The decision to hire Shelton means the country star has certainly transcended into the mainstream and his recent team win on The Voice's seventh season probably didn't hurt either.

Previous country stars to host the show include Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift.

Shelton had a great 2014, winning his fifth consecutive CMA Award for Male Vocalist and topping the charts with his latest album, Bringing Back The Sunshine.

The singer also makes up half of one of country's most powerful couples. He's married to fellow artist Miranda Lambert, who is the only performer nominated in all four country music categories at the Grammys this year.

Unfortunately fans hoping to see Lambert in the audience or even up on stage with Shelton for his SNL gig will be disappointed. She is already committed to a show in Charleston, W. Va. on Jan. 24, though she will likely lend her support via social media.

Shelton will host NBC's Saturday Night Live for the first time on Jan. 24.
