Blake has also managed to keep his famous sense of humor, joking about the various rumors of rehab and depression that have circulated in recent weeks.

"I have to pick up a magazine every now and then to see what's going on with my alter ego, I guess," Blake said, laughing off tabloid speculation about his personal life.

Blake also opened up about his recent weight loss, which he attributed to working his push lawn mower in the wake of his divorce.

"We had all this rain in Oklahoma the first part of the year, and one day, in the middle of crisis and chaos in my personal life, I walked out and I was just thinking like, 'What's going on in my life?' [then] 'What the hell is going on with my yard?! It's like three feet tall!'" Blake explained.

"I'd like to sit here and tell you that I've been exercising," Blake told Hot 20 Countdown host Katie Cook, "but I haven't been."
