Blake Shelton Is 'Super Pumped' To Be Sharing Gillette Stadium Bill With George Strait


Blake Shelton will join George Strait at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA tomorrow night (Saturday, August 17th). Although Blake opened for George on tour in the mid-2000s, he tells us he is just as stoked to share the bill with the superstar. "To be able to now flash forward many, many years to get that call that . . . I don't know if it was George himself. I like to tell myself it was that asked for me, but I'm just happy to be doing it, and we did one already and just like I hoped I got that invitation to go up on the bus and hang out with him and I literally don't remember leaving his bus, and it wasn't very long. It was just like, 'Really? (slurping noise) Oh, seriously George Strait? (drinking noise)' I was so excited I was just drinking my face off, let's be honest. I was super pumped about it and hopefully I'll get a chance to do that again in Boston."

George and Blake will be joined by Caitlyn Smith and Cody Johnson.

Today (Friday, August 16th), Blake releases a brand new single called "Hell Right" with his good friend Trace Adkins.
