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."] SOUNDCUE (:40 OC: . . . 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.
