Blake Shelton Takes All the Credit For Kelly Clarkson’s Engagement
Though Kelly Clarkson is best known for singing anthems of scorned women, the past week has been all about love for the 30-year-old pop star. Last weekend, Kelly got engaged to Brandon Blackstock, aka Reba McEntire’s stepson and Voice coach Blake Shelton’s manager.
Blake is not only good friends with both Kelly and Brandon, but he recently took the credit for convincing Brandon to pop the question! In an interview with Hollyscoop, Blake said, “I told Brandon, ‘Man you need to grow up and you figure out that you need to marry this girl. I am going on the record saying I will do the music at the wedding or whatever you want to do — I’ll be that guy. I will play for four hours if I have to, ‘cause you need to get you head out of your ass and ask that girl to marry you.’”
It seems that Brandon took Blake’s advice, as he popped the question on Dec. 15 with a gorgeous yellow canary diamond, and Kelly’s been beaming ever since. She appeared on Monday night’s live final performance episode and showed off her rock while singing with Cassadee Pope and Terry McDermott.
Kelly was a mentor on Team Blake last season, along with his wife, Miranda Lambert. Not only would we love an invite to Kell’s nuptials, but we wouldn’t mind hearing Blake’s drunken toast, either!
What do you think? Did Blake really convince Brandon to pop the question? Tell us your thoughts below!
