Blake Shelton Still Apologizing for Blunder


Blake Shelton is still apologizing for his big GAC Backstory blunder. It seems many just can’t take it for what it was…a misunderstanding. Blake took to Twitter last night to air his thoughts.

Still sad that Ray thought I was talking about artists. I was only referring to people who don’t like the new direction country is going..I’m so proud of where country music is today… I’ll always stand up for it. It’s my world. My love for Ray Price goes back to the first time I ever performed “Heartaches By The Number” at Ken Lance Sports arena in Ada Ok. #19years Wasn’t and still aren’t a good enough vocalist to perform “For The Good Times”… Ha! Ha! #truth

Even Blake’s wife, Miranda Lambert is surprised by the backlash.

My husband has taught me so much about country music. He studies it. He loves it. It’s his life’s work. @blakeshelton we all have your back!

Some are treating Blake like he pulled a Dixie Chick (and I didn’t really understand that backlash either), but c’mon. You cannot deny where this man’s heart is.

    Maybe he or DCs didn’t mean things that way they said it, but this day and time with the way communication travels, people need to be real careful how that state things. Blake loves to be funny, but some people don’t always take it that way. Blake and Miranda are always firing out at other people, but can’t take it when it’s themselves. Being in the spotlight makes it easier to get called out on things you comment on. JMO.

    This is another HIT RUN for Blake Shelton. He seems to always be a winner in his every day walk of life. So many is’nt that lucky….Always get to smell the roses.Another happy note for Mr Lucky…His Cassadee Pope is hearing her song “Over You” on radio(Blake says she has made it her own).We can’t help but remember the look Blake gave her thru her performance.Have to understand why the song now belongs to Cassadee. Lets hope she can take it to #1 we just may see this gal on ACM Stage?

    Wait, so just because Blake doesn’t agree with some people’s opinions on the new direction of country music, he’s allowed to call them “old farts” and “jackasses” and nobody’s supposed to blink an eye?

    I know Blake’s always said dumb things without thinking but this time he insulted people out of nowhere just because they prefer traditional country. Of course there’s going to be backlash. If he wanted to defend the new direction then he shouldn’t have been telling people they’re old farts and jackasses just for liking something different.

    Dear Miranda Lambert-the world thinks he was referring to artists as old farts…come on….STOP the bull

  5. moanie says: need to be quiet and he needs to figure out a REAL statement that is CLEAR..this is not about Ray Price per say and smarten up here….he needs either a good publicist or someone to help him with this as he is tripping all over himself-not the end of the world but BELIEVE he insulted many!!

  6. Heather says:

    Ok–so he apologized. What next? He and Miranda are still the most annoying and obnoxious artists in country music and still brag about drinking and being a bad a– all the time and they come across as low class and ignorant. Blake’s jokes are NOT funny at all.
