‘The Voice’ Star Blake Shelton Uses ‘Country Boy Superpowers’ to Topple Giant Tree

by Jonathan Howard

The Voice star Blake Shelton worked hard on his music video for Come Back As A Country Boy and that means a lot of work was put into the making of it.

It seems that Shelton has been hitting the gym because in the video he pushes a tree right over without a problem. Except for the fact that he isn’t actually pushing the tree over. While Shelton is doing his own stunts without a stunt double, he isn’t pushing trees down.

In a behind-the-scenes video, the crew and Blake showed how they made the effect happen. There was a lot of CGI going on in the video. Now, we see what went into making this a reality.

So using a backhoe and clever camera tricks, Shelton was able to knock down a “200-year-old” tree. We don’t know how old it was, but the final product was great, anyway. His song is already a hit and it is going to go up there with God’s Country and other songs that have been all over the radio the last few years.

It has been over 20 years since Shelton blew up on the scene with his hit song Austin. Since then he has continued to pump out hits and stay relevant. Of course, he has spent the last 10 or so years as a coach on The Voice. His role on the show as the longest-running coach is impressive. When it comes to mainstream country music, he is at the top of the list.

Even though his favorite contestant ever didn’t win this season, he isn’t too heartbroken.

Blake Shelton Praises Wendy Moten After ‘The Voice’ Finale

Earlier this week we saw the finale to The Voice. While it was clear that Shelton felt that his singer Wendy Moten should have won, that wasn’t the final result. America voted and Girl Named Tom from Team Kelly took the win.

However, Shelton praised Moten in the finale. “We’ve never seen anything like you on this stage in 21 seasons. Ladies and gentlemen this is, when I say world-class talent, I’m talking about, this may never happen again.” Even those words couldn’t bring the vote of viewers around for Moten.

After the final result was announced, he took to Twitter to talk about his two finalists.

“Paris Winningham [and] Wendy Moten[…] I couldn’t be more grateful y’all chose [Team Blake] this season! The talent y’all hold is unreal[…] and we’re just getting started!!!! Get ready world! Love ya fam!!!”

While Shelton didn’t win this year, he has shown time and again why he is still coaching on The Voice. He really knows how to work with artists and bring the best out of them.
