The show also included performances from other well-known country artists, such as Carrie Underwood and Darius Rucker. Blake served as the event’s host, and one of his performances included the following:
There is no lack of cover songs for Elvis Presley, but country music superstar Blake Shelton really knocked it out of the park when he delivered a version of “Suspicious Minds” during a tribute to the King of Rock and Roll in 2019.
In February of last year, a special show was produced to pay homage to Elvis for his many accomplishments in the music business. A number of prominent figures from the world of music participated in the event. According to Billboard, the memorial included performances by a number of famous people, including Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban, John Legend, and Ed Sheeran, among others.
Shelton was the host of the event as well as a performer, and he stole the spotlight both times. Shelton not only participated in the stirring performance of Suspicious Minds, but also in the closing performance of If I Can Dream, Trouble, Guitar Man, and other songs.
It should not have come as a surprise that Shelton was selected to perform “Suspicious Minds.” The song was a huge success in the country music scene, and as a result, numerous singers afterward covered it in their own performances. Dwight Yoakam’s rendition of the song from 1992 remains one of the most well-known versions of the tune. Gwen Stefani, who is dating Blake Shelton, performed a performance of the song with her band No Doubt in 2002 as part of a tribute to Elvis. With his own unique take on the well-known song, we have no doubt that Shelton has succeeded in making Stefani proud.
