Shelton set his sights on Nashville and a career in music when he relocated to Tennessee at the young age of 17. He’d already begun playing the guitar and singing at age 12, writing songs when he was fifteen. It took several years of hard work. However, Blake was signed on by Giant Records when he was 25. His first single to be released was “Austin” and it spent five weeks at the top spot on the Billboard Country Music charts. “Ol Red” was another signature song to come off of his self-titled album. It went gold, shipping out 500,000 copies and showing there was a demand for the artist’s music. His second album, The Dreamer also made it to the gold level. His third album, Blake Shelton’s Barn and Grillalso went gold. Shelton’s success continued, but he really came into his own in 2010, the year he did a duet with Trace Adkins called “Hillbilly Bone” and was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Many awards have come with his success, his wife experiencing many triumphs by his side. It would appear that the performer has carved his niche in the world of country music and is here to stay.
