This past Friday we had the Country Music Freaks Tour roll into town with Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge, Carly Pearce, and Special Guest Trace Adkins. I was looking forward to this show for a LONG time, and was so excited!
The cool part about my job (besides just playing the best country music ever), is that many times I'm invited backstage to meet the stars before the show. I'm always honored and humbled knowing I'm sitting with the stars, talking like it's nothing, while thousands of fans sit in their seats who paid GOOD money to watch them perform! To say I'm lucky and blessed is an understatement!
So this past week, I FINALLY got to meet Blake Shelton! I've been a fan of his since the early day (yes the mullet days). I always hoped that Blake was as funny and cool in person as he seemed in interviews and on TV. I can finally say, YES HE IS. I've never felt more comfortable with a star EVER! He may be a HUGE star on The Voice and multiple #1s in country music, but he is still a down to Earth, REAL dude that will talk to anyone willing to listen! Hearing him talk about the days of playing honky tonks, what country music he's loving now, and wondering where his place is in country music was so refreshing. He really is just the dude next door that you could have a beer with on a Friday night!
If you ever get the chance to meet Blake, DO IT! I promise you will spend the entire time laughing and cutting up with him! I was fan walking in to the hang session, but walked out an even BIGGER fan! Blake is a star that will be around for a LONG TIME!
Check out some of the Blake show, plus a Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce make an appearance too in my weekly VLOG!
