When it comes to inspiration it starts at home; at least for Blake Shelton.
In a new promo for his television competition show The Voice, Blake Shelton reveals that his biggest musical inspiration growing up was his brother.
“Whoever he was listening to, that’s what I listened to” Shelton said in the video. “Because it was so loud.”
Shelton’s older brother Richie was killed in a car accident, when the country singer was just 14-years-old.
In his brother’s honor, Shelton helped write Miranda Lambert’s 2012 song “Over You.”
