Country music superstar Blake Shelton released today a video taking fans behind the scenes of his recent “Friends & Heroes Tour” featuring opener Lauren Alaina and icons John Anderson, the Bellamy Brothers and Trace Adkins.

As previously reported, a sold-out home-state crowd helped the Tishomingo resident get his “Friends & Heroes Tour” off to a boisterous start Feb. 14 at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The chart-topping superstar and his stalwart band packed the set list for the tour with hits from throughout his 18-year career, from early smashes “Austin,” “Some Beach” and the fan favorite “Ol’ Red” to recent releases like “I’ll Name the Dogs,” “Guy with a Girl” and the crowd pleaser “I Lived It.”

But some of the best moments of Shelton’s OKC show took place when he wasn’t even on the stage, as he graciously made way for some of his country music heroes: Anderson swept in to croon “Seminole Wind” and “Swingin’” in his distinctive weathered voice; the Bellamy Brothers showed off their signature tight harmonies on “Let Your Love Flow” and “Redneck Girl”; and Adkins tapped the full range of the emotions as well as his lower register on “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk,” “You're Gonna Miss This” and “Ladies Love Country Boys.”

"These are my heroes, and I want them to have a better time out there than even I'm gonna have, because I want them to go away with a good feeling about this - and who knows, maybe do it again," Shelton says on the behind-the-scenes video. 

Could we possibly see a sequel to the "Friends & Heroes Tour?" Sounds like fun to me.
