|Known for:||His Singing|
Blake first gained popularity in the early 2000s when his debut single "Austin" reached #1 on the Hot Country Songs on August 11, 2001. Blake continued his #1 success with "The Baby" in 2002 and "Some Beach" in 2004. Blake is also known for his 16-consecutive #1 singles streak which began with "Hillbilly Bone" in 2010 (a duet with Trace Adkins) and continues to this day. This surpassed a previous streak set by Brad Paisley, who had a consecutive streak of 10 #1 singles.
Blake has appeared as a judge on Nashville Star, Clash of the Choirs and since 2011, The Voice where he has won 6 seasons thus far with singers Jermaine Paul, Cassadee Pope, Danielle Bradbery, Craig Wayne Boyd, Sundance Head and Chloe Kohanski, though Blake has had an act in finals in every season except for Season 5 when his remaining act, Cole Vosbury, was eliminated at the semi-finals. He shares a bit of a bromance with fellow coach Adam Levine and they are usually heard trading friendly insults back and forth during episodes. Currently, Blake and Adam are the only coaches to appear in every season of The Voice thus far.
In 2011, Blake married country singer Miranda Lambert (who also was a contestant on Nashville Star). The pair later filed for divorce in July 2015 and since then, Blake has been in a relationship with No Doubt frontwoman and fellow Voice coach Gwen Stefani.
