More than 60,000 people went to the beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Thursday to enjoy a free Blake Shelton concert, Philly.com reports.
Shelton greeted the huge crowd by declaring, “I didn’t drag my big ass out here today to play volleyball or go swimming or build sand castles. I came here to drink and play country music.”
The free concert was presented by The Atlantic City Alliance and Live Nation to showcase the New Jersey city and attract visitors.
Shelton was joined on stage at one point in the concert by Danielle Bradbery , the season 4 winner of The Voice .
Dan + Shay opened for Blake.
Blake’s Ten Times Crazier Tour 2014 continues Friday night with a show at Madison Square Garden in New York.
