Blake Shelton has been in the country music business for many years. So it comes as no surprise that he has plenty of vintage photos lying around his house from his early days as an artist.

In fact, the 41-year-old singer took to Instagram on Aug. 24, to showcase a couple of throwback pictures from his glory days with the mullet.

One photo, which you can see below, shows Blake standing alongside Trace Adkins. While the shot seems totally innocent and sweet, with Trace puckering up his lips to plant a smooch on Blake’s cheek, the caption might raise some eyebrows.

“What a dickhead,” Blake wrote. “You never were a very good influence on me! I still love ya though brother. @traceadkins”

Blake, of course, was only kidding about the “dickhead” part (we think), as he and Trace are longtime pals. Fans may recall that Trace presented Blake with his first-ever CMT Artist of the Year award in 2015. Not only that, but the two also collaborated on the 2010 hit “Hillbilly Bone.”


Perhaps Blake’s playful ribbing toward Trace is just the beginning to what could be an entire album of old photos featuring him poking fun at his country cohorts. After sharing the snap of himself and Trace, Blake posted a second picture with him and Joe Nichols with an almost equally cutting caption.

“When I tell you me and Joe go way back … I mean back to when I was skinny and HE was chubby! #chubs,” Blake wrote, alongside the pic.

Okay Blake, play nice!
