Blake Shelton Shares Special Gift “That May Top Them All”
Nascar's Jimmie Johnson does the honors
Over the course of Blake Shelton’s long career in country music, he’s received countless awards, accolades and recognitions. Many of these gifts are special to him; however, recently he received something that might have blown them all out of the water.
NASCAR diver Jimmie Johnson — a friend of Shelton’s — presented him with a commemorative military NASCAR helmet featuring his father, Dick Shelton.
“I have been blessed in my lifetime to have received some incredible gifts and awards and things that will always mean a lot to me,” the singer shares on Instagram. “But on a personal level this just might top them all. Thank you @jimmiejohnson. It is an honor and a privilege to call you my friend.”
Johnson was quick to respond in the comments with, “Thanks my friend, the honor and privilege was all mine.”
The helmet was designed by Shelton and Johnson for the Indy 500, which took place at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Memorial Day weekend in 2022. The country singer also served as the Grand Marshal for the event.
