Blake Shelton is many things; for starters, he’s a talented musician and a great coach on The Voice, but apparently he’s also a hero.
Last week, Shelton came to the rescue of a group of young men — Bryar Blanton, Lenyell Blanton, Josh Turner and Adrian Poplin — whose truck was stuck in a mudhole near the Washita River in Ardmore, Oklahoma; and the thankful fans were eager to share their appreciation.
One of the men, Blanton, recalled the incident during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
He said, “Me and my buddies were checking out the river, when some of my buddies [accidentally] slid into a big mudhole and got stuck for about two hours. Me and Adrian started walking down the road [looking for help], and [that’s when] Blake and his dog, Betty, stopped and picked us up in his truck.”
“He told [Adrian and I] to hop in,” Blanton continued. “Then, we went back to the river [where my friends were stuck], and he tried to get them out with his truck. He couldn’t do it, so he said he would be back in 15 minutes with his tractor.”
“After he helped us out, he talked to us for a minute, then said he had to go,” Blanton explained. “He had his bow with him, and he talked to us about hunting. He’s an all-around nice, caring guy.”
To make the moment even more special is the fact that Blanton and his friends weren’t rescued by just a good Samaritan, but by someone who they really respect.
“I was just like, ‘Heck yeah!’ and asked him for a photo with us,” Blanton told ET. “He lives about 45 minutes from me.”
Blanton took to Twitter to share the photo, along with a sweet caption.
Shelton fans have reacted to the post and praised him for his actions.
And Shelton even responded to the fan, with a joking message about staying out of trouble.
