Blake Shelton is a country singer who got his break in 2001 upon releasing his self-titled debut album. His single, "Austin," immediately topped the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The Oklahoma native later released several more albums, including The Dreamer, Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill, Pure BS, Startin' Fires, and Honey Bee.
Shelton's success as a performer allowed him to pursue other avenues in the field of country music. He started to become visible in the small screen, first as a judge on Nashville Star and then on CMT Insider. At present, he serves as one of the judges on the NBC competition series The Voice.
Shelton is married to another country singer and former Nashville Star contestant, Miranda Lambert.

"This has been an amazing year for me. If you would have told me when I started out that I would have six major awards [including a CMA win for Male Vocalist of the Year, a Grammy nomination, three CDs in the top 10, a sold-out headlining tour and induction into the Grand Ole Opry], I would have thought you were pulling my leg."
