Country Artists Like to Party Karaoke Style

james van der beek

Ever wonder what a bunch of country music singers do at an after party? Well, Karaoke of course! According to People, after the CMT Music Awards last week, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and James Van Der Beek (what?) enjoyed some drinks and music. According to James, country folk know how to have a good time!

I was handing off a drink, a song came on that I’d never heard before and a microphone was handed to me,” Van Der Beek told PEOPLE Saturday at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball in Brentwood, California. “Then Blake Shelton was coaching me through it note by note and I was on a table!”

Added Van Der Beek’s wife, Kimberly, “[James] came back and was like, ‘Oh, by the way, I was just drunken karaoke-ing on a table and Blake Shelton was my coach!’ I said, ‘What? What?'”

“He was amazing!” said Van Der Beek, who also shared an extra bit of insider info: “When country stars karaoke, they don’t sing country.”

Because of the shenanigans, it sounds like country music has a new fan for life. “I’m always going to party with country stars from here on out,” said Van Der Beek. “They’re the most fun!”

Um, Dawson… I mean James is one lucky dude! I wouldn’t mind an invite to that party.
