Oklahoma native Blake Shelton moved to Nashville in 1994, two weeks after his high-school graduation, to launch a songwriting career that would eventually make him one of the leading males in contemporary country music. Back home, he'd received statewide attention by touring the bar circuit and winning the Denbo Diamond Award, the top award for young Oklahoma entertainers.
Shelton was able to maintain that momentum by selling songs to several
publishing houses, including Naomi Martin Music, Warner/Chappell Music, and
Jerry Crutchfield Music. He also landed a solo contract with Giant Records.
Favoring a traditional style of country music that included sentimental ballads
as well as blue-collar rock songs, he made a splash in 2001 with the
chart-topping single "Austin," which spent five weeks at number one. "All Over
Me" and "Ol' Red" followed in 2002, pushing Shelton's accompanying debut album
-- the self-titled Blake Shelton, released by Warner Bros. after the
dissolution of Giant Records -- to gold status.
Lambert and Shelton attracted more and more media attention as their relationship progressed. Lambert made another appearance on his next album, 2008's "Startin' Fires", and sang about their relationship on her own release, "Revolution". Shelton eventually proposed in 2010, issuing a pair of well-received EPs -- "Hillbilly Bone" and "All About Tonight" -- that same year. The EPs yielded three number one hits, followed in 2011 by another chart-topper, "Honey Bee," which doubled as the lead single from his sixth album, "Red River Blue". Shelton married Lambert that spring, several weeks after joining the judging panel of NBC's prime-time singing competition, The Voice. Shelton and Lambert divorced in 2015.
