Country singer and 'The Voice' judge Blake Shelton is a really decent guy. Just this weekend he used his tractor to rescue four people who were stuck in a muddy ditch near Washita River in Ardmore, Oklahoma.
Oklahoma resident Bryar Blanton, whose cousin and close family friend were two of the people stuck, recently spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the incident saying:
“Me and my buddies were checking out the river, when some of my buddies [accidentally] slid into a big mud hole and got stuck about two hours.”
“Me and Adrian started walking down the road and Blake and his go, Betty, stopped and picked us up in his truck.”
“Then, we went back to the river and he [Blake] tried to get them out with his truck,” Bryar continued. “He couldn’t do it, so he said he would be back in 15 minutes with his tractor. I was just like, ‘Heck yeah!’ and asked him for a photo with us. He lives about 45 minutes from me.”
It's great to see a celebrity literally get down and dirty to help others.
Bryar and Blake also had a nice exchange via social media:
Blake's commitment to the Oklahoma community has been showcased already this year. Back in June during Tropical Storm Bill, Shelton gave a helping hand to Roho Hartman to tow his truck up a hill against the challenging climate that the storm was offering up.
Shelton was born in Ada, Oklahoma. It is so nice to see him stay true to his roots despite the colossal success he has experienced in the last several years, serving as a judge on The Voice.
The man is a shining example for celebrities and normal people alike. I'm definitely fan-boying over Blake right now.
We're jealous, Gwen!
