The gold-certified debut album also produced two more top 20 hits ("All Over Me" and "Ol' Red"). Although the album was released on Giant Records Nashville, he was transferred to Warner Bros.

His second and third albums, 2003's "The Dreamer" and 2004's Blake Shelton's "Barn & Grill", were each certified gold as well. His fourth album, "Pure BS" (2007), was re-issued in 2008 with a cover of Michael Bublé's pop hit "Home" as one of the bonus tracks. His fifth album, "Startin' Fires" was released in November 2008. It was followed by the extended plays "Hillbilly Bone" and "All About Tonight" in 2010, and the albums "Red River Blue" in 2011, Based on a True Story... in 2013, "Bringing Back the Sunshine" in 2014, and "If I'm Honest" in 2016. Overall, Blake Shelton has charted 31 country singles, including 21 number ones, 16 of which were consecutive. The 11th No. 1 ("Doin' What She Likes") broke "the record for the most consecutive No. 1 singles in the Country Airplay chart's 24-year history". He is a six-time Grammy Award nominee.
Shelton is also known for his role as a judge on the televised singing competitions Nashville Star, Clash of the Choirs, and The Voice. He has been on The Voice since its inception, and four out of the ten seasons (2-4, 7) his teams have won. From 2011 to 2015, Shelton was married to fellow country singer Miranda Lambert.

«People» Magazine’s Sexiest Man Blake Shelton Says
«There Is Nobody Talking George Strait Into Doing a Photo Shoot»
When Blake Shelton was bestowed People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” title, he knew a bad mood was looming.
As far as Blake is concerned, photo shoots are the worst part of his “job.” But as the Oklahoma crooner told Kix Brooks on American Country Countdown, he can be talked into it, unlike the King of Country, George Strait.
“Photo sessions, without question, are the [worst thing I have to do],” says Blake. “In fact, I did a magazine [shoot] - it’s been like three years ago now - and it was Men’s Journal. And it was a photo shoot and interview, and they did great, they didn’t do anything
wrong, but that’s when it hit me, ‘I absolutely don’t care . . . I am not doing them anymore.’ And, I’ll be damned if they didn’t talk me into doing one about three weeks ago again.
“I’m in a bad mood the days I wake up and know there’s a photo shoot for an album or anything or for The Voice promo . . . it’s a waste of a day. To me, you outta be able to get away with a picture once every 10 years. George Strait—you can’t tell me George Strait doesn’t use the same pictures from album shoots since 1989. There is nobody talking George Strait into doing a photo shoot.”
Watch Blake and Kix talk about photo shoots, George Strait and much more.

During a filing Thursday (April 13) in a Los Angeles federal court, lawyers for Blake and In Touch asked the judge to dismiss the defamation lawsuit filed by Blake. The filing did not include any details of a settlement.
