OFFSTAGE: Blake Shelton’s Life Has Been a Bachelor Party

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

Camping and hunting and buddies. That’s the kind of bachelor party Blake Shelton wants. As opposed to poker and drinking and strippers, I guess. He told Parade magazine that since his life has kind of been a bachelor party for the past 10 years, he doesn’t need an extra one night of that. “I’ve had plenty of that stuff,” he admits. So what will he do? “I think me and my buddies are going to take a camping trip somewhere. Maybe try to find something to go hunt. Turkey or bears or something like that,” Shelton said. Add a fiddle, and he just might have a country song. I hope he makes room on his calendar for that trip pretty soon, because there are only 58 days left until Shelton and Miranda Lambert tie the knot on May 14.
