Look what just surfaced! KFOR TV in Oklahoma City has released interview tapes with Blake Shelton from over 12 YEARS AGO.

Now, I'm not bragging but I was fortunate enough to be one of the first to hear Blake in 2000. I immediately fell in love with his music and got to know him back in those days of the mullet. I was one of the first djs to add 'Austin' on my radio show. I swear Blake will confirm this if you ever ask him!! Or, he might say he was too drunk to remember. But truth is, I feel blessed to be in Country music where I am blessed to have a front row seat watching amazingly talented people like Blake blossom.

The Blake everyone knows today from the 'Voice' is there even back in the early days with all of his rough edges. Enjoy this flash back on a star in the making!!!
