ARDMORE, Okla. – Blake Shelton is making headlines once again for coming to the rescue of some stranded Oklahoma motorists.
Bryar Blanton, Lenyell Blanton, Josh Turner and Adrian Poplin were checking out the Washita River last Friday when two of the young men became stuck in the mud.
“Me and my buddies were checking out the river, when some of my buddies [accidentally] slid into a big mud hole and got stuck for about two hours,” Blanton explained to Entertainment Tonight. “Me and Adrian started walking down the road [looking for help] and [that’s when] Blake and his dog, Betty, stopped and picked us up in his truck.”
“He told [Adrian and I] to hop in,” he continued. “Then, we went back to the river [where my friends were stuck] and he tried to get them out with his truck. He couldn’t do it, so he said he would be back in 15 minutes with his tractor.”
After Shelton helped the young men out, Blanton took to Twitter to thank Shelton for his efforts.
“Just wanna thank you for helping us yesterday man,” he tweeted.
“No problem.. Now you boys stay outta jail!!! Ha!!!” Shelton replied.
This isn’t the first time Shelton has rescued a stranded motorist.
In June, Shelton helped Roho Hartman when his truck stalled in waist deep water.
