Christian Views on Country Music

Welcome! This is the blog of DaveLoneRanger which entails only his commentary on country music, from a Christian conservative perspective. Thus, he takes a dim view of some songs many consider "staples" of country, such as drinking songs. Ye be warned.

Blake Shelton Helps Thwart Intruder

Country singer corrals burglar

Country recording star Blake Shelton helped police corral a would-be burglar when Shelton responded to a frantic call from a relative who reported a drunk man in his house.

Shelton's mother, Dorothy Shackleford of Ada, said her brother Dempsey Byrd called for help late one night recently and she and her famous son responded.

"Blake was over at the house, and Dempsey called and said there was a strange man in his house," Shackleford said. "He said he woke up and there was a big man in his house, so Blake and I just jumped in the truck and went over there."

When they arrived, Shackleford said, they looked in through the window and saw a man inside.

"Blake knocked on the door and the man sort of stumbled over and opened it, and Blake said, 'Hey, you're in my house, man,'" Shackleford said.

Shelton then told the man to step out on the porch and Shackleford went inside to check on her brother, she said.

"He wasn't even in the house anymore," Shackleford said. "He had gone over to the house next door and called us. That's when we called the police and they came and took that man into custody."

Shackleford laughed when asked if Shelton had signed any autographs after the ordeal.

"I'm not even sure they (police) recognized him, to be honest," Shackleford said. "Blake just happened to be home in Tishomingo and had come over to the house. I don't think he would have guessed he'd end up helping arrest a man and then end up in the police reports."

Shelton is best known for his recent singles on the country charts, including "Some Beach," "Goodbye Time," "Nobody But Me" and "Don't Make Me."
