Biography


Blake Tollison Shelton was the son of a used car dealer named Richard and beauty salon owner named Dorothy. He was born on June 18, 1976 in Milburn, Oklahoma where he began singing in his bedroom at the age of eight. His mother entered him to a singing contest against a lot of little girls and he was glad of the experience despite being embarrassed.

At the age of 17, Blake met songwriter Mae Boren Axton who was so impressed of his talent. She recommended him to move to Nashville, Tennessee. Blake followed her advice right after graduating from high school, but he did not realize how quickly fame came to him. His first job in the town may be painting Mae's house wall, but he signed to Giant Records not long after that.
