Blake Shelton Is 39 And Holding Today [VIDEO]
Blake Tollison Shelton was born on this day in 1976 in Ada, Oklahoma. Blake started singing at an early age but he burst on to the country music scene in 2001. Blake showed up in Nashville with his boots, cowboy hat and his signature mullet!
Blake's impact was immediate. In the 2001, Blake released his debut single "Austin" which rocketed all the way up the charts and spent five weeks in the #1 spot. Blake hasn't stopped since then. Blake has racked up 19 number one songs and has won countless awards including Entertainer of the year and male vocalist of the year.
Tell you what a character Blake is, you should see some of the stuff he posts on Twitter! You can follow him at @blakeshelton. The other day Blake was unable to be at the CMA Festival in Nashville so he posted this on his Twitter and bought any of his followers a beer at any Nashville bar they wanted to go too. Now that is cool!
What a cool guy! I have seen him in concert several times and he was terrific every time!
Happy Birthday Blake! Here is the video from his first #1 single "Austin":
