The #PartyInPendleton, more widely known as the Pendleton Whisky Music Fest, was last Saturday in Pendleton, Ore.

My wife and I had the opportunity to not only attend, but to meet Blake Shelton prior to the show.  As we were waiting our turn to meet Blake, we watched every person who had just met Blake exit. Every single person had a smile on their face, and each had a great experience meeting Blake!

My turn came and I headed behind the curtain. I shook his hand and we shared a laugh after I told him that "I can't believe that the fact you drink Sprite Zero & Vodka made news." He said "It must have been a slow news day." Granted, it wasn't headline news.  Just an excerpt someone ran with from this People Magazine interview.

We took the picture you see above, and as he was signing my hat, I told him I'd see him at Watershed.  That's when he said "I think I'm going to bring Gwen (Stefani) to that one".  

So MAYBE there's a special treat in store for the 'Shedders this year!  Let's keep our fingers crossed! Blake will be headlining one of the nights at Watershed Music Festival, a three-day country party at the Gorge Amphitheatre Aug. 3-5.
