Blake Shelton revealed one of his favorite snapshots of himself… and fans are loving the hilarious twist. The “Come Back As A Country Boy” crooner took to his social media channels to share what’s “still one of my favorite pictures of me.” Instead, Luke Bryan takes the spotlight in a flannel shirt, a cowboy hat and shoulder-length hair.
Bryan and Shelton are known pranksters, including against one another. Over the summer, for example, Bryan cracked jokes against Shelton and fellow country hitmaker Jason Aldean in an episode of Rise Before Sunrise, a content series from Fendt that’s available on YouTube. “I’ve actually seen Blake Shelton do farming-type stuff. No question, I’m a better farmer than Blake,” Bryan said at the time, later adding: “Sorry, Blake.”
Along with pranking other country artists, Shelton is known for his jokes and banter with the other coaches on The Voice. Last month, Ariana Grande got in on it by sharing her hilarious “audition” video for Shelton’s latest music video: “Blake doesn’t think I’m ‘country enough,’ but I told him he’s so wrong. So, hopefully this’ll really show him what he needs to see.” Shelton released the song as “an anthem for everyday hardworking country people out there. We have so much pride in who we are and what we do that, if we ever died and got the chance to live life over again, we probably wouldn’t do it if we couldn’t be country.”
