11-12-04 – A local music star who made it big came back to Texoma for a live show Thursday night. Blake Shelton, of Ada, left Oklahoma when he was 17 years old to try his luck in Nashville.
After three years of trying, he got a record contract and after seven years, he had his first hit single with “Austin.” He says it was a long road to get where he is today, but it was his love of country music and performing that kept him going.
Blake’s concert at the Cutter’s club in Denison was sold out.
