Blake Shelton Is ‘Thinking About’ Playing ‘A Few Songs’ Soon
Blake Shelton has been enjoying some time off since he left NBC’s The Voice in May. By the looks of a recent post on his Insta stories, he is at his home in Oklahoma and thinking about stepping on stage to play some song for fans near Tishomingo, Oklahoma.
Blake posted on his Insta stories over a black background this week, “Hey people! I’m thinking about doing something at @OleRed Tishomigo later this week. Not a big deal at all but just maybe play a few songs. I’ll send an update for all in a day or so.”
Shelton has yet to send an “update” to fans o his social media, but it appears he’s ready to pick up his guitar and drive down the street to his home state, Ole Red location soon.
Blake has been pretty quiet on his social media lately, with his last Instagram post over a month ago. His wife, Gwen Stefani, has been promoting her latest song, “True Babe,” and her makeup brand online but has also been pretty quiet as of late.
Shelton hasn’t been hurting for money for many years as he started to make his mark in Nashville in the early 2000s with hit songs, which led to tours and, eventually, awards. Then in 2011, he became a TV star on NBC’s The Voice, and money was never an issue after that. However, not long ago, Blake told me in an interview that he actually misses the days when his pockets were not so full of cash.
Shelton said, “All of it I miss, you know, from back in the days when you struggled. It’s funny. Those are the memories that you cherish the most. Nobody talks about the great opportunities. They talk about the time they couldn’t afford to get gas in their car and something they had to do to get by, you know?”
He adds, “‘Cause those are the times that build character, I think, well, they were for me.”
