A Load of BS: See How Blake Shelton Has Changed Through the Years
Blake Tollison Shelton (better known as Blake Shelton) was born on June 18, 1976 in Ada, Okla. He came on to the country music scene in 2001 with his single, "Austin." That song's success was just the beginning for Shelton.
"Austin" was a No. 1 hit -- his first -- and it spent five weeks in that spot. That was in 2001, the same year that Warner Bros. discovered the singer and signed him, following his first label's closing. His next two albums were also successful; both were certified Gold, as was his self-titled debut album.
Shelton's two marriages have been in the public eye, but his most recent, to Miranda Lambert, was particularly subject to scrutiny and tabloid gossip. The two wed in 2011 and divorced in 2015. Months later, it was announced that Shelton was dating fellow The Voice coach Gwen Stefani.
Despite tabloid rumors and gossip, Shelton has been able to rise above and still create successful music. Click through the gallery above to celebrate all of Shelton's success.
