BLAKE SHELTON HAS A TRUCK IN HIS VACATION HOME
Blake Shelton got quite a surprise last week when he found out that while he was making the media rounds in New York City to promote his brand new album, Texoma Shore, his vacation home was in a truck accident. Someone accidentally drove into the front of his home via a phone call. The accident happened around 930 Friday morning when a landscape and pool company worker was trying to get through Blakes gate to do some scheduled work... when his truck rolled through the gate and crashed into the house. No one was behind the wheel of the truck at the time of the crash. Blake is taking it all in stride and says, "That's why you have insurance."
