Trace went on to tease Blake saying, "I probably wouldn't want to come, anyway, because I didn't want to witness that woman throw her life away like that," he said. "So, I didn't wanna go, anyway."

While Trace seems to have found “relief” in not being invited, Shelton says other celebs have been a bit more upfront about it.

“I've had awkward conversations with so many of my friends since it’s ‘Oh, oh yeah. I read y’all. Yeah, I read about that. How was that?’” Blake said during an interview with Storme Warren. “You know, I was like, ‘Listen, you know, we kept it small, get over it, you know, it’s not about you.’”
