Blake Shelton Performs Holiday Set at the Grand Ole Opry
Blake Shelton may have been putting a lot of his energy lately toward supporting girlfriend Gwen Stefani at her new Las Vegas residency, but for the July 4th holiday, he hopped up on stage himself—not in Sin City, but in the more familiar territory of Nashville's Grand Ole Opry for the Macy's Fourth Of July Fireworks Spectacular.
Looking casual and cool in a black jacket and jeans, Shelton belted out his hits "Honey Bee," "Gonna" and the Jerry Reed cover "She Got The Goldmine" as the crowd smiled and rocked along. Shelton, charming as always, got up close and personal with the audience, slapping hands, kneeling down, and posing for photos while all along not missing a beat.
The event also featured musical power from such talent as Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson and Ricky Martin.
It must have been hard for Shelton to tear himself away from his love Stefani, seeing as he went to three of her Vegas shows in a row. The dedicated (and then some!) boyfriend turned to Twitter to write, “So far @gwenstefani has performed 3 shows in Las Vegas. I have been to 3…"
And, he finished with the hashtag #stalker. That's what he said, folks!
Stefani, for her own part, honored Shelton's dedication by donning a cowgirl outfit, which she admits was a tip of the hat to him and his deep influence. "He's part of my journey," she noted. "It's amazing that he was there."
