Review: Blake Shelton charms a sold-out Florida Strawberry Festival
Here's an amazing fact: For the first time in its storied 78-year history, the Florida Strawberry Festival on Sunday had two sold-out shows in the same day.
Backed by a seven-piece band, the 6-foot-5 Oklahoma native played a relaxed 90-minute set made up mainly of his more recent hits (She Wouldn't Be Gone, Drink On It, Some Beach), although he did sneak in covers of George Strait (All My Exes Live in Texas) and Kenny Loggins (Footloose).
"I believe absolutely, 100 percent, no doubt about it that I am the most misunderstood person in country music," Shelton said. He was bragging about his belt-buckle bona fides, but he was also telling the truth.
