Blake Shelton went on the Bobby Bones Show Monday where he and the host shared their frustrations with California’s COVID-19 curfew.
Most of California is under curfew, requiring non-essential workers to stay home from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., the L.A. Times reported. Bones normally lives in Nashville and Shelton prefers to stay at his ranch in Oklahoma with fiancee Gwen Stefani. But both men are working in Los Angeles at the moment.
“You can’t do anything here,” Bones complained. “…I go to work and then I go home. (Other than that) I don’t even leave the house.”
Shelton, who was on the show to promote the two-night season finale of The Voice, said Bones should still be wary.
“You better be careful going home and going to work, you may get arrested for being out on the street in this town,” Shelton joked.
Shelton, who has been in Los Angeles filming the singing competition, said he’s been worried driving home. He said the show finishes filming at 10 p.m. He also joked he’s scared he’ll get a ticket or arrested leaving work.
California’s curfew began last month and runs until Dec. 21. State officials hoped it would help slow the spread of the coronavirus in the state.
California added more than 200,000 new cases of coronavirus last week, The Mercury News reported. And the infection rate in the state is reportedly up 127 percent over the past two weeks.
Blake Shelton Hid Engagement Ring in Truck Door
Blake Shelton also opened up to Bobby Jones about his recent proposal to Gwen Stefani. The couple got engaged at the end of October at their home in Oklahoma. They’ve been dating for five years.
“The scariest thing was I had that ring in the compartment on the door of my truck for about a week, and I don’t know about you, but stuff falls out of that damn thing on my truck all the time,” Shelton shared. “I’m digging in there looking for a flashlight or chains and kept thinking, man somebody’s going to hit the jackpot whenever I drop this thing out of my truck.”
“I wanted to keep it in there all the time because I didn’t know when I would have the exact right moment,” he said. “But thank God I didn’t lose her ring.”
