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.

Cant understand why none of your country singers have done any of Joe Diffie’s songs.

The world needs a great song about dating people with kids.
Everyone gets attached to the kids and vice versa. If the relationship doesnt work, your heart hurts more because of the loss of the unconditional love that child has for you. And of course the child's pain in the loss. I've dated girls with kids. The hardest part of the breakup is the disappointment the child feels. Its heart breaking:( I've said many times that I loved the girl, but was In Love with the child💞

A perfect Blake and Gwen duo!

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!

My wife to be and I just want to let you know that you and Gwen's relationship and your music have been an inspiration to us. I used your song Nobody but you on Karaoke night to propose to the very women that make me feel rich on minimum wage. As we get married on the 29th of January 2021 we hope to continue to be inspired by you and your beautiful lady. keep up the good work Blake and thank you for being the patriotic country valued voice America needs

My mother’s maiden name is Shelton and I jokingly asked her for years if we might be related. She always said no. Well she just turned 91 and all of a sudden she said to me you know Blake Shelton and you are 4th cousins and did you know he is a pretty good singer! She has photos of my grandfather with Franklin and others and a picture of who she says are your great great grandparents and several other photos. Would love to send them to you but not sure how. She was born in Oklahoma and raised in Salem Illinois. Her father was Robert Shelton. I guess old age brings people back to early memories.
