Each member of Team Blake has got to feel pretty confidant going into this season of The Voice 2013. Their returning coach has taken the last two seasons consecutively; which is a thought that must have crossed their minds when the teams were formed. Now that the blind auditions have wrapped, the real work is about to start. Can country artist Blake Shelton pull out all the stops for another win?
Meet his team of contenders.
Coach: Blake Shelton
Perhaps the most outspoken artist of the bunch, is returning country artist and two-time Voice coach winner; Blake Shelton. Taking Seasons 2 and 3, Blake hopes he can keep his winning streak alive. Shelton is a multi-talented country artist who got his start in Oklahoma, only to move to Nashville two weeks out of high school, to pursue a career in country music. Blake says he grew up listening to and loving the genre. Shelton has earned multiple Grammy nominations, 6 gold and platinum albums, has had 12 No. 1 singles including eight in a row, and is the three-time host of the ACM (American Country Music) Awards. His honesty, wit, and downright Southern “charm” have won audiences over since his first appearance as a Voice coach on Season 1. Blake is married to fellow country music artist, Miranda Lambert.
