Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are gearing up for their upcoming nuptials and they have a special guest lined up to play at their wedding reception….Neal McCoy.
Blake and Neal have been friends for a while, and he was so impressed with Neal’s performance last summer in Oregon, that he asked Neal to play the wedding reception.
“He and Miranda pulled up chairs on the side of the stage in Oregon and watched my show, and they were kind of blown away by the spontaneity and goofiness of my show I guess,” says Neal. “And so they asked me to play their wedding reception. They wanted to pay me, and I told them, ‘Of course you don’t have to pay me, that’ll be an honor, and I’m sure it’ll be a who’s who kind of thing.’
“He’s actually a good friend—he reminds me of myself, in fact!” Neal says of Blake. “He’s a little goofy—he’s a lot goofy—and he’s funny, and he just says what he says, you know.”
