How about y’all?! – Team BS”
Fans flocked to the comments section, hoping for some news from Team Blake. They hoped that this meant that Blake would make his return to the road after a year. Like most country artists, Blake had to stop touring amid the COVID-19 pandemic. He spent most of his time on his Tishomingo Ranch with Gwen Stefani and her three sons.
