LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Blake Shelton was caught stealing last night. But he's not in trouble with the law. There's a new wrinkle this season on "The Voice." It's the steal. Once a singer is dropped from a team, the other judges can pick them up. That happened twice on last night's show. Team Blake picked up Collin McLoughlin after he was dropped by Team Adam. Adam Levine also picked up a singer dropped by Cee Lo Green. Tonight on The Voice, more of the battle round.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- The title of Jerrod Niemann's new album, "Free The Music," has different meanings. Neimann says for him, it was about freeing his mind in the studio, but for fans, he hopes the music frees them from their job, school, ex-boyfriend-girlfriend-wife or whatever it may be.

EDENS EDGE SINGER MARRIES
UNDATED (AP) -- The lead singer of Edens Edge is a married woman. Hannah Blaylock tied the knot with Justin Wakefield during a quiet ceremony in the band's home state of Arkansas. They exchanged vows under a White Oak tree decorated with fisherman's rope and glass floats from Alaska, where Blaylock grew up.

The newlyweds are taking some time for a honeymoon before Edens Edge joins the Rascal Flatts "Changed tour."
