Blake Shelton, a country music star, likes to spend his time outside when he’s not being a judge on the hit TV show “The Voice.”
So when he was asked to take care of a group of foster kids, he couldn’t wait to show them one of his favorite things.
The person who has won 10 Country Music Awards invited some foster children to go fishing on one of his farms in Oklahoma.
Shelton was born and raised in Oklahoma and is one of the few country music stars who does not live in Nashville. He owns several properties in the Sooner State.
He taught them how to fish and how to clean the fish they caught with the help of volunteers. At the end of the day, they had a big fish fry.
Blake talks about his love of wildlife conservation on a recent episode of “Call of the Outdoors.” Blake is the director of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, which is a job he loves.
Fostering Outdoor Oklahoma Families and the foundation are working together to help foster kids and their families get out into nature.
Wildlife officials told ABC News, “Thank you, Blake, for being so kind and taking the time to invest in the kids from your home state by showing them what the outdoors in Oklahoma are all about.”
All of the fishing gear was given to the kids by the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation, and they got to take it all home with them so they can keep fishing.
Blake is said to be spending more time with his girlfriend Gwen Stefani and her three boys in Oklahoma. He would normally be filming “The Voice” in Los Angeles, but COVID rules mean he has to do it from home.
According to Distractify, Blake owns at least two properties in Oklahoma. With Gwen, he has also bought a lake house on Oklahoma’s Lake Texoma, which has a swimming pool, swim-up tiki bar, and palm trees.
