DURANT, Okla. — Blake Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert were among the thousands who attended the Ray Price concert on Thursday at Choctaw Casino. But Shelton was there for a duel purpose. Backstage, before the concert, Blake reportedly made a complete and sincere apology to Price for the controversial statements Shelton had made last week regarding “grandpa’s country music” that did not set well with Price.
That said, the two superstars shook hands, both backstage and again on stage. Price also got a kiss on his cheek from Lambert. Then the Nashville power couple swayed to the rhythms as they watched the rest of the show through the backstage curtains.
