It looks like Blake Shelton has stolen the heart of one very special lady.
And, nope. We’re not talking about Gwen Stefani.
This time, we are referring to 89-year-old Joyce Berry who just so happens to be a huge fan of the “Honey Bee” singer. The elderly woman lives in an assisted living program in the megastar’s state of Oklahoma, and is asking the cool drink of water to pay her a visit.
According to Joyce’s daughter, Sandi Odom, when the Elk City Nursing staff told Joyce that Blake was not on his way to see her, she decided to take matters into her own hands and invited him through social media.
Talk about one tech savvy senior citizen!
With the help of family members, Joyce made her plea in a short, but sweet video and posted it to Facebook. And to her surprise, it went viral!
“I’m in Elk City Senior Nursing home…. It’s a real wonderful place and I would love for you to come and visit us here,” says Joyce in the clip before revealing one of her keepsakes — a framed photo of Blake’s face.“We are all No. 1 Blake Shelton fans, and we’ve got pictures all over to prove it to you. Please come.”
Joyce admitted that she doesn’t get very many visitors, but if Blake were to take a trip to see her he’d be chosen as No. 1.
As for Blake, he got wind of the request and responded with a Tweet saying, “Well Hello there Joyce!!!!!! I need to get over there to elk city. Haven’t been in years. I love you!!”

While, Blake has been busy promoting his new album, “If I’m Honest,” we’re unsure when he will be making his debut at the nursing home. However, with that Pink Pistol Boutique purchase that he recently made, we have a feeling that he will be making plenty of trips to Oklahoma.
