You never really know what’s up Blake Shelton’s sleeve these days. The prankster was all serious in an interview with CMT’s Country Countdown USA with Lon Helton this weekend. While talking about his wedding with Miranda Lambert, and how paparazzi helicopters caught him by surprise, he also shared a story about how Reba McEntire and Ronnie Dunn almost convinced the couple to get hitched in Vegas last year.
While drinking, the superstars had completely convinced the lovebirds to finally tie the knot while they were there for the award show. If it wasn’t for Reba’s husband, and one of Blake’s managers Narvel Blackstock, the big Texas wedding might never have happened.
“It really would have happened that night, and the only reason it didn’t was because Reba’s husband Narvel stopped it. Miranda got swept up in it too. Ronnie even said he had an ordained minister license, so we could say we were married by Ronnie Dunn. It would have happened had Narvel not been there. There were more than a couple drinks involved.”
Could you imagine getting married by Ronnie Dunn? Listen, and read, the entire interview on CMT’s Country Countdown site.
