April 7, 2008 – Blake Shelton: Life, Loss & Love

The young star on his brother’s death, his traumatic divorce and loving Miranda Lambert.

“It’s funny,‭” ‬declares Blake Shelton as he relaxes on a stool in the kitchen of his secluded,‭ ‬testosterone-filled house—an unpretentious,‭ ‬comfortable former hunting lodge‭—‬on his‭ ‬1200-acre spread‭ ‬outside Tishomingo,‭ ‬Okla.‭

“‬I have these in-depth conversations on the bus every night after a show with my manager and road manager.‭ ‬And we were talkin‭’ ‬the other night about datin‭’ ‬and bein‭’ ‬married and careers and travelin‭’ ‬and all that stuff.‭ ‬And I told‭ ’‬em—and I‭ ‬mean it—I’m in my favorite spot that I’ve been in in my life.‭

“It’s real easy to lose yourself and lose focus in this music industry thing.‭ ‬I just feel like,‭ ‬all the sudden,‭ ‬bein‭’ ‬back here‭ ‬in‭ ‬Oklahoma and four albums into this thing and kinda able to take control of my own destiny a little bit‭ ‬.‭ ‬.‭ ‬.‭ ‬I just love how my life is at the moment.‭”‬
