Upon reminiscing about the sets he used to play early on in his career, Shelton decided to make the most of his free time on Thursday by putting together a gig at a bar in Greenville, S.C.

Teasing his Twitter fans with the news, he wrote, "Hey..... I know!!!! Maybe I should just set up somewhere and play country music FOR FREE ALL NIGHT LONG. Like we did back in the old days.

"Brain storming... (not easy for me). If I do this it will include a s--t load of classic country music... 80's are my favorite. I'm talking one of those nights that takes days to recover from. A party. A celebration of country music. A celebration of country fans!"

He then declared: "Greenville, South Carolina... You!!!!!! Blind horse saloon tonight!!! Be there."

Shelton had so much fun at the unexpected gig, he has chosen to repeat the free feat in Georgia.

In a series of posts on Friday, he writes, "My god last night was epic... Thanks again Greenville!!! I love my fans and I live for country music!!!! And even though we played over 3 hours I still have several PAGES of songs we didn't get to do... This is a problem.

"That's it!!!! I have got to do another free country music celebration!!! Macon, Georgia.. YOU!!!! Whiskey River tonight!! Be there..."

I think this is awesome of Blake to play free shows.  I think he and Miranda are the best looking couple and I hope the rumors are not true that he is running around.  He is SO handsome tho and I know women would be all over him but he needs to stay strong and be there for the beautiful Miranda.
