Blake Shelton raising a toast with new vodka brand

Party-loving country star Blake Shelton has launched his own brand of vodka.
The Sangria singer is known for his penchant for indulging in a few boozy beverages and now he has become the latest musician to invest in the alcohol business.
“I grew up in Ada, Oklahoma and was raised on the values of hard work, humility and an appreciation for the simple things that make up a good life,” Blake said in a statement announcing his new Arkansas-made Smithworks line.

Smithworks is set to go on sale in areas including Arkansas, Kansas, Colorado, Missouri, and Blake’s native Oklahoma, reports People.com.
Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent, and Jay Z are among the stars who already boast their own brands of liquor, while rapper Drake recently unveiled plans to join the party with an exclusive line of whiskey.
