OFFSTAGE: Blake Shelton’s Marriage Theories

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Who is he when we’re not looking? A hopeless romantic? Hardly. Right on the verge of Valentine’s Day, Blake Shelton offered his explanation for why Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline keep having kids. “He married over his head,” Shelton said in a recent radio interview. “And he probably figures he’s got a hot wife and she’s funny and cool. The only way he can really keep her is to try to get her pregnant. That’s what’s going on with Luke.” As for the rest of the pregnancies in the country music world, he blames the weather. “There’s been several ice storms in Nashville lately. And the cable goes out and there’s nothing else to do. I mean, you’re sitting there with your wife or husband. You know if there’s nothing else to do, you’re probably gonna end up hookin’ up,” he joked. “Next thing you know Jay DeMarcus actually has a kid.”
