The Blake Shelton Pageant days started when he used to tag along with his mom and watch his sister compete in the local beauty and talent competitions. Then the pageants expanded and added a boy competition category. The rest is history and Blake became an official competitor in the Oklahoma kid pageant competitions.
Blake Shelton’s Siblings (older half-brother Richie and his sister, Endy)Blake shared that his musical influences at the time came from his half-brother Richie who was killed in a car accident. Shelton’s 24-year-old brother, Richie, died in a car accident in 1990 when Blake was just 15-years old. Richie’s death inspired Blake and Miranda to write the tune “Over You” together, which was then recorded by Lambert. Blake used to listen to Richie blaring Ted Nugent, Bob Seger, and country music from his room. Blake’s go to songs in the childhood pageant competitions were Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock and Roll” and Ted Nugent’s “Cat Scratch Fever”. Blake’s mom shared that he often did not do that well in the beauty competition, but typically performed well in the talent portion of the pageant competitions.
