Country music superstar Blake Shelton like to spend his free time outside when he isn’t serving as the lead judge on the popular TV program “The Voice.”
So when he was invited to host a group of foster kids, he was eager to share one of his greatest hobbies with them.
The ten-time winner of a Country Music Award asked several foster kids to go fishing on one of his properties in Oklahoma.
Shelton owns a number of properties in the Sooner State because he was born and raised in Oklahoma and is one of the few country music celebrities who does not reside in Nashville.
He assisted in teaching them how to fish and fillet their catch with the assistance of volunteers, capping up the day with a sizable fish fry.
As the head of the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, Blake discusses his love of wildlife conservation in a recent edition of “Call of the Outdoors.”
To assist in exposing foster children and their families to nature, the charity has partnered with Fostering Outdoor Oklahoma Families.
According to ABC News, wildlife authorities thanked Blake for being so kind and spending the time to teach the kids from his home state what outdoor Oklahoma is all about.
All the equipment was provided by the Oklahoma Wildlife Conservation Foundation, and the kids got to take it all home with them so they could keep fishing.
According to rumors, Blake and his partner Gwen Stefani and her three boys are spending more time together in Oklahoma. He would often be recording “The Voice” in Los Angeles, but COVID constraints require him to do so from home.
According to Distractify, Blake has at least two homes in Oklahoma and, together with Gwen, has increased the size of his real estate portfolio to include a lake property on Lake Texoma in Oklahoma, which comes replete with a pool, swim-up tiki bar, and palm palms.
