Open Letter to Blake Shelton - Country Music Star

Blake Shelton


Country Music Star Blake Shelton

Howdy Blake! Congratulations on being the winning coach for three seasons of The Voice! Here we are in season 5 and I'm rooting for you to win once again.

Also congratulations on your 2012 CMA Entertainer of the Year award! Also kudos on your 2013 CMA awards! I love when you and your wife, Miranda Lambert win matching awards such as Male Vocalist and Female Vocalist. You are just a jack of most trades.

The camaraderie between the four vocal coaches of The Voice is priceless! Personally I prefer having Usher and Shakira as coaches. Nothing against CeeLo and Christina, but the chemistry is much more entertaining with Usher and Shakira.

You rock the coach role! Not that you are a stranger to being a judge since you had a previous gig as a judge on the now cancelled Nashville_Star.

You began singing at age 12 and won your first award at age 16. The Denbo Diamond Award in your home state of Oklahoma.

Way to go BS! What a successful career you have achieved since you released your first hit "Austin" in 2001.

Blake Tollison Shelton aka BS!

Birthday: June 18, 1976

As of November 2014 ... 18 of BS's songs are number one hits!

Kudos to you cowboy!

It took you ten years, but I'm sure it was well worth the wait.

It's better to take things slowly, haste makes waste.

Vocal Coach on The Voice - Blake Shelton

I'd also like to add that I'm a huge fan of your song "Kiss My Country Ass!" That twangy tune was quite a hit and should have also reached number one. It didn't, but it was a number one hit to me! It's one of my favorite songs to play musical chairs to! One is never too old to play musical chairs. You and Miranda should try it at your next party!

Speaking of your new bride Miranda Lambert. I was very excited for the both of you when you finally tied the knot. I'm hoping the second time is a charm for you. Your first wedding only lasted three years, does that really count? I loved the fact that you wore jeans and boots and Miranda wore her mother's wedding dress. I also thought it was sweet that you asked for her father's blessing. I'm sure you were hooting and hollering when he gave you his OK! Were you sweating out his answer? Probably not!

Your wedding weekend was also my daughter's wedding weekend! My daughter was married on May 13, 2011 the day before yours and Miranda's! I really wanted an invite to your wedding. 550 guests? What was one more guest? I could have caught the red-eye from Orlando once my daughter's reception was over and I could have made it in time to your wedding in Oklahoma. Oh well you can't blame a girl for trying. Next time you have a party consider inviting Sunshine, she knows how to get the party started. Hello??? Musical chairs!

Scroll to Continue

I know you and Miranda are sharpshooters and big fans of hunting. I'm not. Just be careful out there in those darn woods! I'm sure your wedding guests truly enjoyed the venison that you both provided for their meal.

You have quite a following on Twitter. How could you not? Your tweets are sarcastic, witty, funny, rude, crude, and awesome! You started the saying "I balls you!" That has become the BS motto! Way to go Blake. You have toned down your twitterverse activity a bit which is understandable since you are a very busy married man. Soon you and Adam Levine will be tweeting for The Voice! Bring it BS and AL!

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert


I would like to offer my condolences on the recent loss of your father. Your pain and anguish was obvious to your fans. You aren't a stranger to loss since your older brother also passed away. In 2001 a young man of twenty-four died in a car accident. You were just a young teenager and had to deal with your grief. I also lost a brother at age 16, I understand your pain. We learn that life goes on. We will always carry their memories in our heart.

You sang the theme song for the remake of Footloose! Outstanding video performance. The movie did okay, but come on it's a remake! Hollywood must know by now that they can't mess with perfection. Just leave it alone. Can you pass that word on to them for me? Thanks!

Congratulations on winning Male Vocalist of the year in 2011. You also won Favorite Country Male Artist. Now, how cool is that? You are going places and that's not BS! Atta boy to you! Keep on doing what you are doing because it seems to be working for you. Feel free to post a comment to your many fans in the section below. I would appreciate hearing from you! "I balls you" Blake Shelton! Now how about a follow? @sunshine625

P.S. "I balls you" = I <3 U the characters in Twitter which mean I Heart U or I Love U

10 Things You Didn't Know about Blake Shelton via Taste of Country...

10. Blake once had a pet turkey, that he named Turkey. (Clever name!)

9. He was invited to join the Grand Ole Opry via Twitter. He gladly accepted with a Retweet. (I'm not surprised, since BS is a Twitter King)

8.His favorite engagement gifts were a flask and shotgun. (I bet Miranda loves those gifts too!)

7. His biggest pet peeves are under-dressed people and bare feet. (Two of my favorite things...being bare foot wearing shorts and a tank!)

6. He believes he has one of the crappiest tattoos in the world. (I'm sure there are many more bad tats out there BS.)

5. A fan once gave him an iguana as a gift and "scared the crap out of him." (Ewwww!)

4. He continues to defend the mullet he rocked in the 90's. (Just as long as you never sport the 'do again, we'll forgive him.)

3. His mother was more excited than he was, when he was named one of the sexiest men alive via People magazine. (Mama Shelton earned the right to be proud.)

2. Even though he is coach of The Voice, he used to detest reality shows. (I agree)

1. Blake used to be a pageant child. (Awwww, must have been one cute kid.)

Sadly on July 20, 2015 it was announced that Blake and Miranda were divorcing after 4 years of marriage and 10 years together.

Will you please check out my daughter Jordan Igoe on YouTube?

Thank you so much, your endeared fan Les.

Alex on March 13, 2017:

Is it possible to sing songs of Blake in Russia?

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on March 29, 2015:

I will take that into consideration dancote, I was thinking Johnny Cash is due for a tribute! Alan Jackson also. I need to bring some oldies and goodies back to the front line :) on March 25, 2015:

Can we get some love for artists like Travis Tritt and Confederate Railroad. If there's a better country song than "That's what brothers do", please enlighten me.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on November 02, 2014:

What's not to love about Blake Shelton! :)

Barbara Tremblay Cipak from Toronto, Canada on August 30, 2014:

loved your page on Blake! He and Adam make The Voice, they're the reason I watch! - you captured his sense of humor here too, what a clown!

Shauna L Bowling from Central Florida on August 30, 2014:

I love Blake Shelton and the Voice. In fact, that's how I first came to know him. He's funny and down to earth. His fame has really climbed. He's now a spokesperson for Pizza Hut and Pepsi. Not too sure how I feel about that. I think it's a tad cheesy for him. I love him anyway!

Susie Lehto from Minnesota on August 30, 2014:

Well, it was fun camping out on this hub awhile.

I like Blake a lot!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on June 18, 2014:

Happy 38th Birthday to Blake Shelton! June 18, 2014

Ihdal on August 02, 2013:

The AMP is too small to host Miranda Lambert. And my goodness, who wants to die oiduste roasting at a festival in the late August heat and humidity in Arkansas?! They need to do away with the AMP and have concerts indoors at the U of A. Much better for the artists and the fans. The AMP's been a huge waste of money. Especially when two large venues (or 3 with Randall Track Center) are available on campus.

Aomy on July 29, 2013:

, a more "sensual" Barnabas. Handsome, charming, and ddlaey. That being said, he is the BEST thing about this poor pilot, which was all kinds of wrong although it COULD have been beautiful in the right hands. I hope it turns up as a bonus feature on some future DVD release. Maybe when "House of Dark Shadows" and "Night of Dark Shadows" are finally released on DVD, this interesting little gem could show up THERE as a bonus feature.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on March 26, 2013:

Hey FFC...I think that Ed just isn't much of a fan of neither Blake or Miranda. I hear ya.

Keith Abt from The Garden State on March 26, 2013:

Wow. If that dude a few posts above me seriously thinks Miranda Lambert is "a fat cow" then he needs some eyeglasses. She's a hottie!!

Just sayin'.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 04, 2013:


That's a harsh comment to Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. It is your opinion.

ED HERNDON on February 04, 2013:


Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on December 17, 2012:

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on September 11, 2012:

TT, Thank you for the reminder...I kinda forgot about this letter, BUT I'd never forget about Blake Shelton. Giddy up!! :)

Terrye Toombs from Somewhere between Heaven and Hell without a road map. on September 11, 2012:

I just adore Blake Shelton and now that The Voice is back on, I love watching him and Adam Levine battle each other for the contestants. Great information on a great country singer, Miss Sunshine! :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on July 13, 2012:

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on July 13, 2012:

Hi Cosmic, I agree Adam and Blake really rock on The Voice. They make awesome team mates. Thank you for sharing!:)

Hi Josh, I'm going to have you liking Country Music a little bit more and more each day! :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on July 13, 2012:

Docmo...absolutely not! C&W songs do rock, in a country sorta way! Blake and Miranda and the new "it" couple in Nashville. They are superstars! Thanks for your comment :)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on July 13, 2012:

Hi VocalCoach! Thank you for sharing your story about Nashville Star and Kristen, that's awesome! Blake is an awesome coach on The Voice...I'm glad he's part of that team. BTW...We are sharing Johnny. Enough said :))

Joshua Zerbini from Pennsylvania on July 12, 2012:


I didn't know you liked Country Music? ROFL :) Great letter to Blake!

Cosmic Bus from Maryland on July 07, 2012:

What a cutie! I love the chemistry he and Adam Levine have on The Voice!

Terrye Toombs from Somewhere between Heaven and Hell without a road map. on July 04, 2012:

I just adore Blake. And when he gets together with Trace...omg. More fun than a slip'n'slide covered in baby oil with a hot cowboy! VUMS!

Mohan Kumar from UK on July 04, 2012:

What a great guy. I'm warming more and more to C&W songs ( thanks sunshine!) and Blake's tunes truly rock. ( is it weird saying C&W tunes 'rock'?) After my Hill billy bones duet, I need to look forward to another song to learn! He is such a talented and handsome man and I'm sure he's landed the right way with Miranda. sigh. Wonderful letter as usual, Linda. I love this format.

Audrey Hunt from Pahrump NV on July 04, 2012:

Blake Shelton was responsible for voting my vocal student Kristen McNamara into 2nd place on the television show "Nashville Star." He just has it all doesn't he?

What a wonderful fan letter. He'd love to ge this in the mail. You already know that Johnny Depp is my man. But Blake Shelton can share the stage with Johnny anytime. And no...I'm not writing a poem about him. :-) Up across and sharing!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on June 18, 2012:

Happy Birthday to Blake Shelton!!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on June 06, 2012:

Thank you Jon! Blake was excited to win The Voice! So were his fans!:)

Jonathan McCloskey from Cinnaminson, New Jersey on May 14, 2012:

I have followed the voice slightly and hadn't known that Blake won the competition so I'm glad I read this hub today! Thanks for the information and the great hub, Sunshine625!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 14, 2012:

Happy first wedding anniversary to Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on May 10, 2012:

Hi Sharilee! I'm also so proud of Team Blake and Jermaine. They are both so humble and down to earth:)

Sharilee Swaity from Canada on May 10, 2012:

Sunshine, this is a great hub! I really like Blake on the Voice and I was so glad to see him win this season. I did not know all of this about him, although I always liked him. He's a great singer and he seems so sincere.

I think he would love this fan letter and who knows? Maybe he will someday see it! Have a wonderful day.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 16, 2012:

StarringU I hope you find a date and have a blast at the concert!! I'm sure you will:)

StarringU on February 16, 2012:

I want someone to go to his concert with me tonite.... WHO lives close to Cinci ?

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 13, 2012:

Thank you Bobbi! I am watching The Voice right now and you are correct this hunk does make the show more exciting!:)

Barbara Purvis Hunter from Florida on February 13, 2012:


You have enlighten and brighten my day.

What a handsome hunk he is. I will put him on my list under the "Rock"(Dewayne Johnson).

You are the greatest at writing these "Fan Letters" you have this niche solely with a star on top.

My mother loved Conway Twitty--and I like some of his songs. Especially, I don't know the name of it, but he sings. "It takes a man with a slow hand, one with an easy touch."


Anyway, I voted up, awesome, and beautiful.

Your Hub Friend,


Alecia Murphy from Wilmington, North Carolina on February 05, 2012:

I have to say Blake and Miranda sounded good singing America the Beautiful. But I can't wait for the Voice.

iamaudraleigh on February 01, 2012:

Will do!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 01, 2012:

The above comment applies to BS also:))

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 01, 2012:

If you are on Facebook look me up! Linda Bilyeu ... us country music fans need to stick together!:)

iamaudraleigh on February 01, 2012:

:)is my response that was too short to originally post! Thanks!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 01, 2012:

Ah heck you have great taste also! I sure hope Blake sees your comment!:)

iamaudraleigh on February 01, 2012:

She does indeed! Blake is a hotty in my eyes though and new to me. I will have to look him up!

I saw Garth Brooks (who rocked) twice.

I love old school; Johnny Cash!

My favorite is Dweight Yokum's "The lLast Heart In Line"!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on February 01, 2012:

Your sister has good taste iamaudraleigh!:)

iamaudraleigh on February 01, 2012:

Your hub was definitely refreshing! I voted up! My sister would love this!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 30, 2012:

Feel free to visit Blake whenever you like Martie :))

Martie Coetser from South Africa on January 30, 2012:

How can one not be a fan of Blake Shelton? He is absolutely gorgeous! Yummy!

Thanks for an enjoyable read, Linda!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 30, 2012:

@tammy, I do adore BS as do millions of other fans. I suggest following him on Twitter @blakeshelton he's very entertaining!:)

@justateacher, I so TOTALLY understand! Blake has got me through some rough patches. Keith Urban and Tim McGraw got me through the roughest.

@tammyfrost, thank you!

@Kitty, I know! Isn't he!?

@Eddy, Always a pleasure!

Thank you all for stopping by... now if Blake would stop by and comment that would be awesome also!:)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 30, 2012:

@ardie, don't Miranda and Blake make an adorable couple? I could so picture them with their hunting gear on waiting for their next prey. Haha!

Eiddwen from Wales on January 30, 2012:

Billiant sunshine although I am not familiar with this star.

However now i am so thank you.

Take care and enjoy your day.


Kitty Fields from Summerland on January 30, 2012:

Not a big country fan, but you may have turned me with this one! How cute is he?! Voted up and awesome!

Tammy Winters from Oregon on January 29, 2012:

Great Job...I like Blake Shelton too.

LaDena Campbell from Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Near Oz... on January 29, 2012:

Love love love Blake Shelton! He helped me get through my divorce - ok...not him personally, but his songs! I agree with you - I wouldn't mess with Miranda! I don't think I would have to worry about her shooting ability - I am sure she would just knock me out if I got too close to Blake!

Thanks for SHARING!

Tammy from North Carolina on January 29, 2012:

Wow, what a labor of love. I learned a lot about this country music icon. I didn't realize he was such a hottie! Well done and your love for him shines through.

Sondra from Neverland on January 29, 2012:

These letters are such a nice way to learn about a celebrity without just reading the facts. I wasn't very aware of BS before. All I knew was that he married my sweet girl Miranda :) now I feel better knowing all about dear Blake. Keep going girl, only 3 left!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 29, 2012:

Hi Alecia, Blake took season one to heart. He was visibly upset when his singer (???) didn't win. Someone has to win and someone has to lose. Yay for season two. I hope the idea about airing the first show right after the Super Bowl works. It seems risky. Thanks for stopping by!:)

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 29, 2012:

Hi drbj, Blake's first wife was his Kaynette Williams who was a longtime GF. I considered mentioning her name in the hub, but I didn't want to tick off Blake when he stops by to post his comment:))

Alecia Murphy from Wilmington, North Carolina on January 29, 2012:

I have to say he's my favorite Voice coach. He seemed the most passionate about it besides Adam. And he gave great comments. I'm definitely looking forward to the premiere post-SB but I'm not sitting through that game. Great hub!

drbj and sherry from south Florida on January 29, 2012:

I dunno if I balls him, but Blake is kinda cute. Who was his first wife, Linda? Just wonderin'.

Thanks to you I now know way, way more about him than I did before.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 29, 2012:

Blake is also one of the four vocal coaches on The Voice. You will enjoy the show plus you get to see more of Blake:)

Suzie from Carson City on January 29, 2012:

SS.....I'll wear a bullet-proof vest! I don't get the connection to "The Voice?" I hear it's a good show, but I cannot allow myself more than 2 hrs. of TV viewing per day. I'm very strict with my self-discipline. Otherwise I'd be an out-of-control-spoiled-brat!!!!

Aurelio Locsin from Orange County, CA on January 29, 2012:

You definitely have to send this one out. I was unfamiliar with him, so thanks for all the videos. Voting this Up and Awesome.

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 29, 2012: above again: Miranda Lambert is a sharpshooter and has a great aim! She shot, harvested and served the venison to her wedding guests that she caught. I wouldn't mess with her. She is also an awesome country singer. Her letter is coming up soon. I hope you watch The Voice now!:)

Suzie from Carson City on January 29, 2012:

R U kidding me? This cannot be a real human! He has to be a CREATION of a group of female scientists!! WOO HOO!

FORMULA: 200 lbs of GORGEOUS....20 scoops of SEXY...2 pinches of DIMPLES....Unlimited TALENT...Lots of SWEETNESS.....Preheat by "gawking at"...flirt at 500 degrees...get rid of Miranda....wrap him in satin and toss in the trunk...Drive to the beach and Sail off to Sea! Good-Bye world....HELLO BLAKE BABY!!!!

Linda Bilyeu (author) from Orlando, FL on January 29, 2012:

Hi Debbie! I was just admiring Blake's photo, he does look mighty fine!:) I'm also a fan of the original Footloose, not the remake even though I haven't seen it.

If you haven't heard Blake's music yet I highly suggest a listen to one of his videos.

Have a wonderful day!:)

Deborah Brooks Langford from Brownsville,TX on January 29, 2012:

Ohhh Sunshine Blake is so cute and talented .. great hub.. and I love Foot of my favorite movies..the original. I haven't seen the new one. I want to. Thanks for sharing.. love this hub..
