One stranded Oklahoma man was rescued from flood waters by one of country music’s biggest stars.
Roho Hartman was driving home when he reached a road that was covered in water.
“There was a car on the other side..he went through it,” Hartman told Newschannel 4. “I thought huh…I believe I’d make it to.”
Hartman wasn’t so lucky. He, along with another man who stopped to help, tried to push his stalled truck up the flooded hill while waist deep in water. Suddenly, a man pulled up in a Dodge truck with a tow rope and a smile.
“The guy said ‘are you ready?’” said Hartman. “I thought…that looks like Blake Shelton.”
The man helped Hartman pull his flooded truck up to a safe point on the hill, but Hartman still had no way to get back home. He asked the familiar-looking man if he could give him a ride home, and he happily obliged. When Hartman answered a phone call from his wife, he revealed
“I said you wouldn’t believe it, Blake Shelton pulled me out,” said Hartman. “Told her ‘you better slick up, we’ll be there in just a minute.’”
Hartman and his wife chatted with Shelton for about 15 minutes and snapped a few quick photos before he left their residence. He made a good impression on the Oklahoma man, who was lucky to have had the chance encounter at just the right time.
“It was great, he’s a good fella I think,” Hartman said. “I like him.”
Shelton will leave his home state of Oklahoma for a string of shows through the summer, making stops at many music festivals across the country. A full list of upcoming tour dates has been posted at his official website.
