VIDEO - Blake Shelton Nearly Falls Off Cliff!


Check out this TikTok that Blake posted while out on location shooting a new music video!  The look on his face is priceless when he starts to lose his balance.

@blakeshelton I think it’s time to look into a stunt double for these videos.. #ComeBackAsACountryBoy ♬ Come Back As A Country Boy - Blake Shelton
