It sounds like we won’t be seeing any late-night Twitter shenanigans from country music superstar, Blake Shelton, anytime soon.
That’s right — evidently, the “God’s Country” singer can’t trust himself online after he has had a few too many drinks. Shelton recently took part in a media session with Ryman CEO Colin Reed. During the sit-down, Shelton said that he has decided to remove the Twitter app from his phone so he doesn’t get into any more trouble.
“He has a habit of saying the wrong thing at the wrong time,” Reed said, smiling next to Shelton.
In addition, the 44-year-old says that he has had other artists tell him that he might want to tone it down a notch.
“Reba (Reba McEntire) has been hard on me,” Shelton admitted. “The Diamond Rio guys have gotten onto me. Oak Ridge Boys have talked to me about it. I finally just took it off my phone because I mean, when you drink you got s–t to say. Take it off my phone, I can’t say it.”
Blake Shelton Still Has an Active Twitter Account
Although Blake Shelton has since deleted the Twitter app from his phone, the country star still has an active Twitter account. So it is not unlikely that he can still post updates from time to time as he and his team see fit. However, we can probably expect a lot less of him tweeting while he is drinking — no matter how much we enjoyed it.
Fans that have followed Shelton closely on Twitter may have noticed that he had been posting less and less. Although in recent weeks, the country star has shared various updates. Just earlier this week he shared a hilarious video of him catching an opossum red-handed feasting on his smoked dinner.
“Am I interrupting you?” Shelton hilariously asks the opossum. “I just thought I would come out here and get the food that I smoked all night. But I’ll wait ’til you are done. That’s cool.”
Shelton posted the video on Monday night. “Guess I’m making a frozen pizza,” he said.
Furthermore, we hope to continue seeing Blake Shelton post updates with his new Kubota tractor. The singer recently upgraded from the tractor that his late father sold him back in 2006. Since getting his new beast, Shelton, an avid hunter and outdoorsman, has shared clips of him seeding alfalfa for a food plot on his property. So, hopefully, his fans on Twitter will still get to enjoy his outdoor lifestyle.
