WASHINGTON, December 10, 2012 -Since Blake Shelton made his debut in 2001 with his country album “Austin,” he has taken Nashville and Hollywood by storm. He has had twelve number-one singles and has twelve musical awards under his belt as well. He was recently named entertainer of the year at the 46th annual CMA awards. As if all this is not enough, His recent Christmas special, Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas, drew in over 10 million viewers.

He is also one of the musician coaches on The Voice, and seems to be everywhere on television these days. A willingness to just be himself has paid off in spades for Shelton. Well liked and respected within the industry, Shelton continues to be one of country music’s most popular as well as visible goodwill ambassadors.

Shelton makes two appearances on TV tonight: first on The Voice, and later in the evening on Michael Bublé: Home For The Holidays. Be sure to tune in tonight and see why the sky is the limit for Blake Shelton.

I was born and educated in Southwest Virginia, traveled with my job all over America in my twenties and early thirties then came back to the mountains to raise my daughter.

I’ve been employed as everything from a quality control technician in industrial construction, to a mail processing plant manager, to postmaster of a small town. I’ve been to forty nine of the fifty states, as well as many other countries. Traveling will always be a passion I indulge, and something I’ll call upon often in my writing. 

I come from a long line of story tellers, and will shamelessly exploit a family tree resplendent with colorful and unique characters, both past and present.

In short my perspective will reflect the pride and familiarity I have of my Appalachian heritage. My stories will be a reflection of the values I believe we hold dearest here, all embellished with a healthy dose of Southern Appalachian flare.
