Carrie Underwood doesn’t work out- as much…
Blake Shelton’s new album is due out in November…

One time exercise fen Carrie Underwood has cut back on her workouts.
She tells E!, "I used to work out six days a week. But now that's a little rare, sometimes it's one or two times a week, and that just kind of has to be OK. And it is OK because whatever I'm doing that's keeping me out of the gym is important."
And when she does work out, her cute son Isaiah and her husband Mike often join her.

Blake Shelton will release his 11th studio album, Texoma Shores, on November 3rd. 
He made the announcement via social media yesterday. His timing is on point because the new season of The Voice starts on Monday. 
You can pre-order the album as of today!
