It must be Christmas in July for Blake Shelton’s fans.
After a surprise open rehearsal at his Ole’ Red bar in his hometown of Tishomingo, Okla., Blake Shelton just dropped another surprise that left us with major déjà vu.
On Friday, the newlywed took to Instagram to surprise his fans with yet another open rehearsal set for later in the day. “That was a blast yesterday!!! Let’s do it again today at @OleRed’s The Doghouse in Tishomingo!!! Rehearsal starts around 4:30! It’s not a show, but it’s fun.”
On Thursday, the couple surprised fans at the Tishomingo location of his Ole Red franchise after he tweeted that he was planning an open rehearsal for some upcoming shows without mentioning Stefani.
“It may not be good, but at least it’s free!” he wrote just hours before the afternoon performance. On Thursday, a local radio station shared a video on Facebook of the newlyweds performing at the restaurant.
The first song the two performed was their 2020 joint-project “Happy Anywhere,” featured on Shelton’s album Body Language. They followed that up with a rendition of their duet “Nobody But You,” which the country singer released in December of 2019 on his album Fully Loaded: God’s Country. Shelton even sang with Stefani on Stefani’s throwback hit, “No Doubt.”

Additionally, the impromptu performance marked the couple’s first public performance since their wedding, which seems fitting since music was a significant part of their love story.
While we don’t know what the lovebirds will choose to rehearse for Friday’s show, it’s bound to be a good time— and hey, it’s free.
The couple is well on their way to a busy summer and fall. Following their July 3 wedding at Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma, the singers returned to their home in Los Angeles, Calif., to get back to work.
Gwen Stefani is currently working on her fifth solo album and preparing for her Las Vegas residency that resumes in the fall. Meanwhile, Blake Shelton is busy filming as a coach on season 21 of The Voice and preparing to hit the road to embark on his Friends And Heroes tour in August.
“They’re both very, very busy this year with work, and this was the only time they could fit in the wedding,” a source close to the couple told People.
The couple married six years after unexpectedly finding love while working on “The Voice.” The two tied the knot in an intimate ceremony surrounded by close friends and family and officiated by Carson Daly on July 3. The ceremony took place in a new chapel on Shelton’s property, which he had built for the big day
