Childhood: Shelton was born in Ada, Oklahoma to his beauty salon owner mother Dorothy and car dealership father Richard.

Instead, Giant released "Austin", Shelton's first single which would later go on to spend five consecutive weeks at number one in the US Country Charts. Shortly after its release Giant Records was closed and Shelton was pursued by parenting company, Warner Bros. Records whom released his self-titled debut album containing the top 20 hit songs: All Over Me and Ol' Red which became his signature, live song, despite not being a major radio hit.

‘The Voice’ singer was joined by his wife Behati Prinsloo, and their daughter Dusty Rose.
Adam Levine received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Friday and made the special occasion a family affair.
The Maroon 5 singer was joined by his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, at the ceremony, along with their four month old daughter Dusty Rose, who was making her first public appearance.
Country star Blake Shelton features his nativity song 'There's a New Kid in Town' from his 2012 album 'Cheers, It's Christmas' on the soundtrack to the epic History Channel miniseries 'The Bible' which tells of most important stories of the Old and New Testament.
The video is a clip taken from the series depicting the birth of Jesus Christ in a stable, including Mary's gruelling journey to Bethlehem on a donkey and the shepherds and wise men following the star and offering their gifts to the baby boy. The song is a slow and melodic country tune with infectious lyrics; it is also a far cry from some of the other soundtrack numbers such as Cee Lo Green's 'Mary Did You Know' which only serves as a positive thing for this diverse 10 hour series.
With direction from Crispin Reece ('I Shouldn't Be Alive'), Tony Mitchell ('Flood') and Christopher Spencer ('Stonehenge: Decoded'), 'The Bible' is the brainchild of producers Roma Downey (who also stars in the series) and Mark Burnett ('Survivor', 'Shark Tank'). The first episode of the show reached 13.1 million viewers giving it the largest cable television audience of 2013 so far; altogether it has reached 50 million, and the series hasn't even finished yet! There is even further excitement with a brand new New York exhibit displaying various ancient religious artefacts that usually rest in the Vatican as well as a gallery of the series' stunning photography. 'The Bible' will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on April 2nd 2013.
