Blake Shelton recently shared a story about his early years touring and it’s quite humorous.
The country star spoke with The Rob + Holly Show and revealed why he once flushed a bag of weed down the toilet in Birmingham, Alabama.
The hosts asked Shelton what were some of his most unique performances to date. He quickly replied that it was a promotional gig in Birmingham, Alabama. “I had to do a breakfast performance at a McDonald’s down there for the radio station,” Shelton said according to AL.com.
Shelton acoustically performed his two number one hits “Austin” and “Ol’ Red” live. When he was finished, “this guy pulls into the McDonald’s and he’s kind of standing off to the side, and he’s like, ‘Hey, man, you’re Blake, right?’ I go, ‘Yeah, it’s good to meet you,’ you know, and he said, “I brought something for you,’ and he handed me this little paper sack.”
Later on Shelton opened up the bag and was shocked by what was inside.
“And it was a bag of weed,” he explained to The Rob + Holly Show. “And I remember thinking, ‘Oh, my God, I just got set up, like, he handed me this bag of weed and like, are the police going … I had no idea what was going on. I ran to the bathroom and flushed it all down the toilet, you know — which I would have never done now, right, I’d be like, ‘Hey, hey!’ At the time, you know, I was 24 years old in Alabama, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I just got set up. I’m going to jail.’ But I didn’t.”
