An unmanned landscaping truck crashed through the gate and front wall of Blake Shelton’s lakehouse November 3. The driver of the landscaping truck was attempting to open the gate when the truck rolled through the gate and hit the front wall of the house. The extent of the damage is not known.
Shelton learned of the accident shortly before appearing on Live with Kelly and Ryan. Shelton said the following on Live with Kelly and Ryan: “So, I’m talking about Texoma Shore, and I made the album at my lake house. There is a studio at my lake house in Oklahoma, and I just got a phone call. Somebody drove their truck through the front of my lake house, so if this album doesn’t hit, then that’s bad luck. It was an accident,” Shelton says. “I’m trying to figure it out, too. There’s a truck sticking out of the front of my freakin’ house out there. I gotta sell some records now for sure! It’s one of them things. That’s what you have insurance for. I’m not too worried about it.”
Shelton wrote most of the tracks for his new album, Texoma Shore, at his lakehouse.
