Shelton released full-length album Startin’ Fires in 2009, followed by EPsHillbilly Bone and All About Tonight in 2010. That same year, he released his first collection of greatest hits, Loaded: The Best of Blake Shelton. He went on to win several awards at the 2010 Grand Ole Opry, including an Academy of Country Music award, a Country Music Association award, and a CMT Music award.
Shelton married Kaynette Williams in 2003, but their union didn’t last long. The pair divorced in 2006. In 2011, Shelton set both personal and professional milestones. He married longtime girlfriend and country music star Miranda Lambert, became a judge on the TV singing competition The Voice and debuted his new album, Red River Blue, which became his first Billboard 200 No. 1 album, debuting in the top spot. The album also spawned three No. 1 singles, “Honey Bee,” “God Gave Me You” and “Drink on It.”
In 2012, Shelton and Miranda performed together at the Super Bowl XLVI. In the weeks following the performance, Shelton signed on for season 3 of The Voice. He also released a holiday album, Cheers, it’s Christmas, in October 2012.
In 2013, Shelton released his eighth studio album, Based on a True Story…, and entered his fourth season as a judge/coach on the hit reality television series The Voice. He appeared alongside Adam Levine, Shakira and Usher on the show. (Shakira and Usher replaced former judges/coaches of the series Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green in 2013.) For third time on the show, Shelton coached the winning contestant. Teenaged Texan Danielle Bradbery took the top honors for the fourth season of The Voice.
That November, Shelton picked up two important CMA honors. The Country Music Association named him male vocalist of the year and gave Based on a True Story… the award for album of the year.
Shelton quickly followed up Based on a True Story… with Bringing Back the Sunshine (2014), which proved to be a hit with country music fans. The album, which features “Neon Light,” reached the top of both the country and pop charts. He also picked up another CMA Award for male vocalist of the year in 2014.
In July 2015, Shelton and Lambert announced they were getting divorced after four years of marriage. “This is not the future we envisioned,” the couple said in a statement. “And it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately. We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter.”
