There is no doubt Blake Shelton came into country music, shook it up, and changed it for the good and forever. With nine studio albums; eleven consecutive Number One hits (setting a Billboard Country Chart record); sixteen Number One hits overall; countless awards; a role on one of America’s top television shows; sell out headlining tours; and a high profile marriage, Blake has made his mark on the world in his thirty-eight years here. And something tells us this is just the beginning for this legend in the making!
Happy Birthday to one of our favorite fellas here at #CMchat, Mr. Blake Shelton! Have a drink (or twelve) for all of us!
