Blake Shelton (Courtesy Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
Blake Shelton (born June 18 1976) is an American country music singer.
Shelton moved to Nashville, Tennessee from his hometown of Ada, Oklahoma at the age of 17. After several years in Nashville, he signed to Giant Records in 1998. Shortly after the release of his debut single, "Austin", in 2001, Giant Records folded, and Warner Bros. Records picked up the single, which eventually reached No. 1. He has followed up with two more number one songs and several other top 20 songs, all on Warner Bros.
Shelton released a DVD of music videos on October 19 2004 titled Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill: Video Collection, and preceded his latest CD release, Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill. In 2005 he toured extensively in support of the album, including a coveted opening spot on Rascal Flatts's sold-out Here's to You tour, which also featured Shelly Fairchild.
Blake released his album, Pure BS, on May 1, 2007. The disc contains 11 songs and was produced by Bobby Braddock, Brent Rowan and Paul Worley. Blake's manager at the time of this album is Narvel Blackstock, husband of Reba McEntire.
On December 18 2005, several of Shelton's songs, including "Nobody But Me", appeared on the TV movie The Christmas Blessing, starring Neil Patrick Harris, Rebecca Gayheart, Angus T. Jones, and Rob Lowe. Blake had a small role at the end of the movie, playing himself at a benefit concert, singing Nobody But Me.
Blake also has a cameo in the video for Craig Morgan's single, "Redneck Yacht Club." He can be seen standing in a boat, fishing, when Craig rides by on his jet ski. The jet ski causes a large wave which splashes Blake.
Blake has signed a contract to appear as one of the judges on the 2007 season of the television singing competition Nashville Star.
