The winter weather isn’t stopping Blake Shelton from tending to his Oklahoma land!
Although a treacherous winter storm is currently making its way across the country, Shelton is bound and determined to put his Kubota tractor to good use.
On Wednesday (Feb. 1), The Grand Ole Opry member braved the freezing temps to mow his property.
Sporting camo clothes, a scarf, and a beanie, Shelton documented the winter mowing experience on Instagram and proved he wasn’t letting a cold snap get in his way.
“Hey, I’m mowing in the snow because I can! Woo-hoo,” Shelton says in the clip while riding on the giant red tractor.
He captioned his post with words of wisdom, telling fans, “Don’t try this at home…”
This isn’t the first time the “No Body” singer shared videos from his Kubota tractor. In August of 2022, he made headlines when he sang Jason Aldean’s 2001 hit, “Amarillo Sky” while plowing his land.
Shelton is enjoying some downtime before things kick into high gear later this month when he launches his long-awaited Back To The Honky Tonk Tour.
The upcoming trek opens on February 16 in Lincoln, Nebraska, and runs through March 25 in Buffalo, New York.
Joining Shelton on the tour are Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean.
“There’s nothing like getting out on the road and taking music to the fans,” Shelton previously shared. “I feel just as excited to step on stage and perform as I did the very first time. I know my tour mates Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean feel the same, and I can’t wait for y’all to get to know them better. Break out the hats and boots, ‘cause we’re going back to the honky tonk!”
In the midst of the Back To The Honky Tonk Tour, Shelton will return to NBC’s The Voice for his final season as a coach. On the upcoming season, Shelton will be joined by fellow coaches Kelly Clarkson, Niall Horan and Chance The Rapper.
Before he bids farewell to the show after a whopping 23 seasons, Shelton hopes to take one item from the set as a souvenir.
“I don’t know if they’re gonna offer that or not. I feel like they owe me a damn chair though,” he told PEOPLE in a recent interview. “I mean, who else can sit in my chair? It’s like the three bears — I don’t want anybody else sitting in my chair. I’m gonna try to get that away from them. Maybe I’ll have to buy it or something.”
He’s not sure if the network will offer it up, but he’s going to give it a shot.
“I’m sure they’re gonna say, ‘Well, the one thing you took was a lot of our money, so you should be happy with that,’” he joked.
Blake Shelton’s departure from The Voice came as a shock to many.
“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after next season,” Shelton began in his statement, which was shared in October of 2022.
“This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me,” he continued. “It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people, you are the best. It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week.”
He continued to reflect on his time on the show and ended his statement by thanking everyone who supported him along the way.
The upcoming season of The Voice is set to premiere on March 6.
