Happy 42nd birthday to Blake Shelton. The Oklahoma native and boyfriend of Gwen Stefani has a lot to celebrate this year .

Blake now has successfully opened two Ol' Red Bar and Grill's, one in Nashville and one in Oklahoma. He is one major part of the hit series The Voice.

If you ever get the chance to have a drink with Blake, do it! I had the pleasure of hanging out with him before his show in Lubbock earlier in the year. He is so cool and laid back. He is exactly like you see him on TV. He is one funny son of a gun.

Happy Birthday Blake. Thank you for all you do for country music.
