Blake Shelton seems to have friends everywhere.

Maybe it's because he's so dang likable

Anyway, one of Blake's friends is NASCAR driver Dale Jarrett who is set to be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame next week and guess who's going to be there to do the inducting. 

Yep, that would be Blake. 

Dale, whose father is NASCAR Hall of Famer Ned Jarrett, asked Blake to do the honors.  

“I couldn’t have all four of my kids as inductors, and I couldn’t just ask one,” Jarrett said in a press release. “I wanted my dad to be able to enjoy the moment with my mom and the rest of my family. So it just kind of opened up the opportunity.

“This sport brought a lot of really good things to me. It gave me a chance to be a competitor, an opportunity to compete at the highest level and win, but it also has allowed me to make some really good friendships and Blake Shelton is one of those people.”

Blake will take the stage next Wednesday, Jan. 29 at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte, N.C. to help induct his friend. Four more legends will also be honored that night: Maurice Petty, Fireball Roberts, Jack Ingram, and Tim Flock. 

Fans can watch the Induction Ceremony live on FOX Sports 1, Motor Racing Network, and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio starting at 7 p.m. ET.
