Blake Shelton on Oklahoma Victims Tribute with Miranda Lambert
Country star Blake Shelton and wife Miranda Lambert were the opening act on “The Voice” on Tuesday, where they performed a touching tribute to those affected by Monday’s devastating tornadoes in Oklahoma.
Shelton, an Oklahoma native, told “Extra” about the duet. “It was rough. Luckily, Miranda happened to be in town. A lot of different producers came up to me and said do you want to do something for Oklahoma, and I said ‘Absolutely.’ I told Miranda we should just do ‘Over You,’ -- that’s a perfect tribute to what a lot of people are going through.”
The singer emphasized that the bigger deal is what is going on in Oklahoma, and he urged the need to raise awareness… and donations.
As for how his family back home is doing, Blake said, “Everybody that I’m friends with and all of my family made it through, but it still hurts and it’s still home.”
