Say what you will about Blake Shelton—and when you do, ya gotta say that the guy is loyal.

Blake met 16-year-old Xenia when Blake served as mentor/coach for the first season of NBC's The Voice—and he has been Xenia's loudest fan ever since.

Blake dedicated lots of his prime Twitter account real estate to pushing a new four-song EP from Xenia, an EP that was released at midnight (Dec. 20). And Blake also played Xenia's song "Sing You Home" for pop star Kelly Clarkson—and Kelly loved it.

"Hey girl!" Kelly tweeted to Xenia. "Blake showed me one of your songs and it sounds great! Congrats! I'm a fan."

Blake's reaction to that message: "Coolest tweet ever!!!"
