Jay Leno Takes Blake Shelton For Joyride In Elvis’ Truck
Last Wednesday, Shelton appeared on former “The Tonight Show” host Jay Leno’s new CNBC show “Jay Leno’s Garage”, where he got to go for a joyride in a vintage GMC truck.
In the clip below, you’ll see the moment when Shelton learns that the truck once belonged to the late great Elvis. Leno tells Shelton after he is already in the vehicle, and the singer’s reaction is priceless!
“This is Elvis’ truck, we had it shipped out here for you to drive,” Leno told Shelton. “I wanted you to get the feel of it.”

“He did drive a truck,” Leno explained. “He had a lot of vehicles. So you are sitting where the King sat.”
“Now I’m getting nervous,” the country superstar admitted. “That is literally unbelievable. I never would’ve dreamed that Elvis Presley even owned a truck.”
