Blake Shelton Drove Elvis Presley’s Truck
Blake Shelton appears on an upcoming episode go Jay Leno’s Garage on CNBC and gets behind the wheel of a truck that was owned and driven by the “King of Rock and Roll” himself, Elvis Presley.
Blake drove the 1967 GMC truck while joined by Leno in the passenger seat, when Jay says to him, “This is Elvis’ truck, we had it shipped out here for you to drive. I wanted you to get the feel of it.”
“You’re kidding me,” Shelton responds. “I love that.”
Leno explains, “He did drive a truck. He had a lot of vehicles. So you are sitting where the King sat.” To which Shelton said, “Now I’m getting nervous. That is literally unbelievable. I never would’ve dreamed that Elvis Presley even owned a truck.”
As Shelton continues driving, Leno reflects on some of Presley’s other vehicles that he’s driven in the past. Soon, the pair reach a red light — which Leno insists that Blake drive right through. Blake did it and Jay says, “You see, when your driving Elvis’ truck, you can go through red lights. That’s one of the superpowers you get.”
Jay Leno’s Garage returns Wednesday (5/20) 10 ON ET on CNBC.
