The coronavirus pandemic has put a damper on this year’s summer concert season, but some artists are finding innovative ways to entertain their fans. Back in March 2020, Blake Shelton canceled the remaining dates on his 2020 Friends & Heroes Tour.

Now, the country star is teaming up with his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, and fellow country crooner Trace Adkins for a one-night-only drive-in concert on July 25.

“This is is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe,” Shelton said in a press release. “I’m excited we’re getting the chance to perform a concert for fans and we’re going to go back and play old hits like ‘Austin,’ newer songs like ‘God’s Country’ and we might even introduce something brand new! So fill up those popcorn tubs and get ready for some country music!”

How exciting!

On July 8, Shelton tweeted about the special show, which is part of Encore Drive-In Nights, saying “Can’t wait for July 25th”:

On June 27, Garth Brooks performed a drive-in concert event as part of the Encore Drive-In Nights series. More than 350,000 fans enjoyed that show from the comfort of their cars.

On June 28, Brooks tweeted about the incredible experience he had performing for his fans in this unique way, writing, “Last night I saw everything great about the old days, but it happened right in the middle of the most uncertain times I have known in my life. #ThisIsAMERICA! I can’t thank you enough!! love, g”:

Here’s hoping that Shelton’s show is just as epic!
