Blake Shelton honors Elvis Presley with  «Suspicious Minds» performance

Carrie Underwood and Darius Rucker, two more country music giants, also performed in the program. There is no lack of Elvis Presley cover songs, but country music singer Blake Shelton certainly knocked it out of the park when he sang a rendition of Suspicious Minds during a tribute to the King of Rock and Roll back in 2019.

In a special tribute concert last February, a slew of musical talents gathered to commemorate Elvis for his contributions to the music industry. According to Billboard, Jennifer Lopez, Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban, John Legend, Ed Sheeran, and others performed at the memorial.

Shelton took center stage as both a performer and a host. Shelton sang If I Can Dream, Trouble, Guitar Man, and other songs in addition to the raucous version of Suspicious Minds.

It was hardly a surprise that Shelton was chosen to perform Suspicious Minds. The song was a great hit in the country music world, and numerous musicians covered it. Dwight Yoakam’s 1992 cover of the song was one of the most popular. Gwen Stefani, Blake’s girlfriend, sang the song with her band, No Doubt, in a 2002 tribute to Elvis. We’re confident that Shelton did Stefani proud with his own take on the classic song.

If you missed Shelton’s incredible performance, you can see it all in this video.
