Blake Shelton’s biggest fan might also be his youngest: seven-year-old Daisy Prescott. Daisy and her mother, Kristen, attended the Bayou Country Superfest in Louisiana and got meet-and-greet tickets for Blake’s show. When the big moment came and Blake appeared backstage, Daisy freaked out, shutting down and crying at the prospect of meeting her country idol, but Blake made sure the little fan went home happy. Kristen wrote a lengthy Facebook note recalling the encounter and thanking those who made it possible.
“I walked in first and saw her in the corner. Her face at first was horrified. Then, sobbing, she RUNS about 3 feet and slams into BS giving him a huuuuuge hug. And he melts! He held her, hugged her tight and kissed her head. He bent down and kept on hugging saying, ‘Sweetie! I didn’t mean to make you cry!’,” she said in part.
Daisy has been diagnosed with juvenile dermatomyositis, an incurable autoimmune disease about which her family works to raise awareness.
Blake’s next performance is in Nashville during CMA Music Festival at Nissan Stadium on June 9th.
