Short bio: 

Blake Shelton was born June 18, 1976 in Ada, OK. After graduating from high school at seventeen, he moved to Nashville to pursue a singing career. There he got a job at a music publishing company and, in 1997, Bobby Braddock helped him get a production deal with Sony Music. Then in 2001 he was signed to Giant records who released his debut single "Austin". It spent five weeks at Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. The gold-certified debut album also produced two more Top 20 hits ("All Over Me" and "Ol' Red"). Although the album was released on Giant Records Nashville, he was transferred to Warner Bros. Records Nashville after Giant closed in late 2001.

Shelton's second and third albums, 2003's The Dreamer and 2004's Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill, were each certified gold as well. His fourth album, Pure BS (2007), was re-issued in 2008 with a cover of Michael Bublé's pop hit "Home" as one of the bonus tracks. Shelton's fifth album, Startin' Fires, which had an appearance by his then-girlfriend Miranda Lambert, was released in November 2008. It was followed by the extended plays "Hillbilly Bone" and "All About Tonight" in 2010, and the albums Red River Blue in 2011... Based on a True Story... in 2013, and Bringing Back the Sunshine in 2014.

Overall, Shelton has charted 24 country singles, including 11 number ones. The 11th No. 1 "Doin' What She Likes" broke "the record for the most consecutive No. 1 singles in the Country Airplay chart's 24-year history". He is a five-time Grammy Award nominee. He's also known for his role as a judge on the televised singing competitions Nashville Star, Clash of the Choirs, and The Voice. He has been on The Voice since its inception, and four out of the seven seasons (2–4, 7) his teams have won.

I would like to complain about your choice at the beginning of the knockouts. I would like to inform you that you made the wrong decision sending Levi home. Me and my family were rooting for him, and he was the obvious choice. And we can’t believe that Levi was sent home. ☹️ 🥵

I took a video of my child signing God's country and she wanted me to make sure I share it with Blake so he knows it's her jam but I don't know how to do that.

My boyfriend and I are huge fans not just of your music. You are a lot of fun to watch on The Voice and in your interviews. I am watching to see if you ever tour in New York State (near Syracuse). It is my boyfriend's sincere desire to meet you one day. He is a bass player. Until then, keep being Blake!
