Leapin’ Lizards!!!

Thousands of fans will be meeting their favorite country stars in Nashville this week during the CMA Music Festival, and many of them will come bearing gifts.  Blake Shelton recently shared the story of one of the craziest gifts he ever received from a fan.  “The most shocking thing I ever got was, somebody handed me a paper bag at a meet and greet one time,” he said, “and I walked back to the bus and sat down and opened the bag and a freakin’ lizard, like an iguana, jumped out of the bag and onto my shirt.”  Blake says, “I realized we were playing a fair and they must have won it in the ring toss or something, and they gave me their iguana.  And I think I crapped my pants when it jumped out onto my shirt.” Blake says he receives a lot of interesting gifts, including the one time somebody brought him a toilet seat.  We can only imagine what he’ll get this week.  The CMA Music Festival officially kicks off in Nashville on Thursday.  Listen for LIVE updates from Becca on the Stafford and Frigo morning show on 104.9 The Fox!
