In one of those rare once-in-a-lifetime moments, Blake Shelton gets humbled by, then the opportunity to perform with country legend and his personal idol, Steve Wariner on the stage of The Grand Ole Opry. The pair performed Steve’s classic hit, “Lynda” in front of a full house of adoring fans last night. For more information on the performance, see the press release below.
When asked who his dream Opry duet partner was in an interview, Blake Shelton answered “Steve Wariner.” It’s not surprising as Wariner has had one of the longest-lasting and most influential careers in country music history. On Thursday night, during a special star-packed CMA Week Opry performance, the pair sang a duet on “Lynda” — one of the singer/songwriter’s 22 No. 1 hits. 2017 also marks the 30th Anniversary of the song released in 1987.
“I am humbled by Blake’s answer to that question and singing with him on the Grand Ole Opry stage was a heck of a time. He’s one of the giants of today so I am glad we got to do this,” said Steve Wariner.
