Who Are Blake Shelton's Celebrity Friends Who Could Show Up On 'Barmageddon'?
Blake Shelton and Carson Daly are getting their friends to play games on 'Barmageddon.' Let's look at who Blake might call.
As the premiere of “Barmageddon” rapidly approaches, Blake Shelton is tapping into his Rolodex of celebrity friends to compete in bar games for a chance to redeem some viral sensations while having some good old-fashioned fun.
The show promises to have Shelton and his best buddy, Carson Daly, bring in their celebrity friends to test their mettle in heightened bar games all for the sake of earning their Viral VIPS (aka people who embarrassed themselves online and need some redemption) the chance to win a prize.
While the world wait to see who they enlist to join them at Shelton’s Ole Red bar and restaurant for “Barmageddon,” we thought it may be worth taking a look at some of Shelton’s most noteworthy celebrity friends who may be willing to grace us with their presence.
Before the Maroon 5 singer left “The Voice” in 2019, he and Shelton were the only two consistent coaches for 16 seasons. Anyone who watched the show knows the duo had a playful rivalry, trading wins back and forth over the years. However, when it was all said and done, the two musicians share a real friendship, bonded by their mutual love of competition.
The two country artists have been very friendly in the public eye over the years. In fact, when it came time for Shelton to be inducted as a member of the illustrious Grand Ole Opry, it was his buddy Trace Adkins who was there to give him the honor. At the time, Shelton noted that Trace is one of his absolute heroes. Since then, they’ve collaborated on several of Shelton’s tracks such as “Hell Right” and “Hillbilly Bone.”
The friendship goes both ways. Adkins recently called Shelton his “stupid, younger brother” and noted that he’s his dream guest for his new drama “Monarch,” according to Hello Magazine.

Shelton and Craig Morgan showcased their friendship during a surprise appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in 2019. He came to congratulate Morgan on having his heartbreaking and very personal song “The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost” reach number one on the iTunes charts.
When Morgan suffered the tragic loss of his son in a tubing accident, he channeled his grief into a song that moved Shelton to launch a viral campaign to get the song to No. 1, even if it meant his song “God’s Country” would lose its spot. The only thing more touching than Morgan’s reaction to the surprise visit from Blake was his performance of the song, as ET Canada notes.
After Levine left “The Voice,” John Legend took over the fourth chair and the duo quickly developed a bromance for the ages. Not only did they sometimes spin their chairs at the exact same time, but they even commemorated their newfound chemistry in 2020 when they sang a modified duet of “Just The Two Of Us” for the show.
In addition, they’re both one-half of two Hollywood power couples. Shelton married fellow “The Voice” coach Gwen Stefani while Legend is famously married to Chrissy Teigen. So, they have quite a bit in common, which is the foundation for any good bromance.
It’s pretty obvious if someone is in country music and from Oklahoma, there’s simply no way that Blake Shelton won’t be friends with them. Such is the case for fellow music and TV legend Reba McEntire.
In addition, they share some pretty important professional ties. According to The Boot, Reba’s husband, Narvel Blackstock, manages her while his son, Brandon, manages Blake. So, they each have a vested interest in the success of one another.
You can catch “Barmageddon” on USA Network later this year. In the meantime, you can watch "The Voice" on Peacock right now.
