Blake Shelton began singing at an early age, and by the age of 12 he already knew how to play the guitar. When he was 15 Shelton wrote his first song, and at the age of 17 moved to Nashville to pursue a singing career, although initially obtaining a production contract with Sony Music. Eventually in 2001 Shelton signed a record deal with Giant Records, and released his debut single entitled “Austin”, which became a #1 hit on the US Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks, plus peaking at #18 on the Billboard Hot 100. Such an instant success significantly increased Shelton’s net worth.

However, shortly afterwards, Giant Records was closed, and Shelton moved to Warner Bros. Records, and released a rendition of George Jones’ song “Ol’ Red”, which became another commercially successful single, and is considered by Shelton to be his signature single. His first, self-titled album sold 500,000 copies, receiving gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and showing that the public’s demand for Shelton’s songs was increasing. Shelton continued what became a stream of successful albums with his second solo work entitled “The Dreamer”, which was also certified gold. Shelton has released 10 solo albums to date, the most recent being “If I’m Honest”, released in May 2016, with the first single “Came Here to Forget” released to country radio in March 2016.

During his career, Shelton has also released over 30 singles, 15 of which sold over 500,000 copies worldwide. Shelton’s success has been reflected in nine Country Music Association Awards, four Academy of Country Music Awards, numerous Teen Choice Awards, along with four Grammy Award nominations among many others.

Blake Shelton is not only a successful singer, but a TV personality as well, appearing as one of the judges in the reality TV singing competition “The Voice”, and is reputed to have earned Blake 187,000 dollars per episode, six million dollars per season, substantially contributing to his net worth. He has also appeared in many music specials. On film, he starred as Wyatt Earp in 2015’s “The Ridiculous Six”, and in other films as himself, no doubt adding to his bank account.

In his personal life, Shelton was married to Kaynette Gern from 2003 to 2006, and subsequently married another country music artist Miranda Lambert in 2011, but they divorced in late 2015. Since then Blake has been dating Gwen Stefani.
