There are some stories that only Blake Shelton can tell, and this one is a doozy.
During his March 19 appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” Blake shared a story about how he and Kelly Clarkson once allegedly made pal and fellow “The Voice” coach Adam Levine cry.
“We had a designated driver,” Blake began the story about the time in 2012 when he went out with Kelly and Adam on New Year’s Eve in Oklahoma. “We were drinking, so we went to [Adam’s] show to make fun of him. When we were done, we were on our way back to my place and we got pulled over by a deputy sheriff.”
Blake says they were surprised to see the blue lights behind them, especially since they had a sober designated driver and were being extra cautious. “Adam is from Los Angeles, where you don’t talk back to the police,” Blake continued. “In Oklahoma, if you have a good point, you do talk back sometimes. Adam was convinced we were going to go to jail.”
In fact, the sheer possibility that they would end up in the big house got Adam so freaked out that he reportedly started to cry, begging Kelly to stop making fun of the police officer’s mustache, according to Blake.
Just the vision of that night is enough for us.
In fact, the whole interview between Blake and Jimmy was pretty fun, as the two friends went back and forth with one another. “You are such a jackass,” Blake said to Jimmy at one point after Jimmy showed the audience a glamour shot of a teenage Blake with a mullet. “You didn’t have one question to ask me. You just wanted to show the damn picture,” Blake objected.
The two also discussed how Blake warms up for a performance, with Jimmy asking if the country star does vocal exercises. “I have a drink before the show,” he told Jimmy. “That’s what I do to warm up. I have a vodka.”
