Blake Shelton is feeling pretty excited about the rising temperatures in Oklahoma because it signals that it’s finally time to start growing some corn on his ranch.
He shared this enthusiasm with fans through a clip posted to his official Twitter account with the caption, “It’s corn time y’all!!!!!! #kubotacountry.”
The video showcased the country star riding on his tractor as he said, “It’s early April, there is absolutely no frost in the forecast. That means it’s corn time, baby. Woo! We’re farmin’.”
Several fans took to the comment section to share how much they love it when Shelton shares glimpses into his life like this.
“Loving your farming vlogs, Blake! 😆🌽,” said one user.
“Love these personal fun videos from you. Pls keep ‘em coming. Corn updates,” wrote another.
When Shelton isn’t tending to his land, he’s days look a bit more glamorous. Most recently, he returned to the CMT Music Awards for the first time in five years to perform his latest hit, “No Body.”
“No Body” at the CMT Music Awards
His performance included nostalgic video screens, neon signs, and some boot-stomping dance partners. As the stage lit up around him, Shelton got the night started with the upbeat, honky tonk tune.
“Don’t wanna scoot the boots with nobody/Get straight tequila drunk on nobody/Wrap these arms around nobody/No body, but yours/Don’t wanna shadows dance with nobody/Slide some cotton off of nobody/Don’t wanna wake up kissing nobody/No body, but yours,” he sings in the chorus.
The music video takes Shelton and listeners down memory lane as he adds to the throwback country sound with the return of his classic mullet and cowboy hat. Shelton used to sport this look at the start of his career, back in the early 2000s. This time, the hairstyle was only a wig, but it did remind Shelton of why he cut it off in the first place.
Showcases His Love Of 90s Country
“This song in particular takes me back to the ‘90s when I was in high school and first moved to Nashville because it feels like what the music sounded like at that time,” he wrote on social media.
“No Body” follows his 2021 single, “Come Back as a Country Boy,” which is featured on the deluxe version of the full project released that year, Body Language.
Additionally, Shelton is currently serving as a mentor for his final season on NBC’s The Voice. While there will plenty for him to miss, including his fellow coaches, Kelly Clarkson, Niall Horan and Chance the Rapper, as well as his iconic red chair, he revealed to Entertainment Tonight that what he’ll miss most is the incredible talent that comes before him.
During a recent episode, Team Kelly singers ALI and D. Smooth took the stage to sing Allen Stone’s “Unaware.” This stunning performance had Shelton praising their skills as he said, “That was just great music.”
“That’s what I love about this job,’ he continued. “That’s what I’m going to miss the most, is just sitting here with a front-row seat to some of the best concerts that anybody’s ever seen. That was one of them right there.”
The Voice Continues
Later on, Clarkson shared some mixed feelings she has about her fellow coach leaving the show.
“I can’t stand him, but I love him,” she joked. “He is the ultimate coach on this show, everybody knows that. It’s a loss for The Voice, but also, it’s a gain for humanity, because you get to see less of him.”
Clarkson first joined the show as a coach in Season 14, and she continued for eight consecutive seasons. After taking a brief hiatus in Season 22, she returned for Season 23 which premiered in March.
On March 25, Blake Shelton wrapped up his headlining Back to the Honky Tonk Tour with Jackson Dean and Carly Pearce. This 18-date run marked the singer’s first headlining trek since his consecutive Friends & Heroes Tour outings.
This summer, he will continue to perform at a variety of music festivals including Barefoot Country 2023 (June 16), Jam Ranch (June 22), Country Jam 2023 (June 23-25), Sunfest Country Music Festival (Aug. 4, 6), Coastal Country Jam 2023 (Sept. 16-17), and Boots In The Park (Sept. 22-23).
