If you are a country music fan, you know the name Blake Shelton. Even before he was a judge on The Voice, Shelton was taking names and numbers in the business. Now that he has become a household name, there are a few things you may not know about the country star and here they are.

Number Fifteen: He Had a Unique Pet

If you’re going to get a pet, usually the choice is between a cat or a dog. Shelton skipped the common choices though and had a pet turkey, named Turkey. Sadly, Turkey passed away from heat stroke in 2003.

Number Fourteen: He Has Some Interesting Pet Peeves

What rubs the singer the wrong way? Under-dressed people and bare feet apparently. He said that he hates seeing people at formal places dressed in a t-shirt and hat. And as for shoes, flip flops do not cut it either. Feet should always be covered in his presence.

Number Thirteen: Fans Have Given Blake Shelton Some VERY Unique Gifts

One of the gifts he has received from fans that freaked him out the most was a live iguana. Shelton had no idea what it was until he got back to his tour bus and it jumped out of the paper bag it was in making him scream his lungs out.

Number Twelve: He Used To Hate Reality Television Shows

The country star never used to watch reality shows before he was on one. And when asked which one he would want to be on, he did not say The Voice, go figure.

Number Eleven: He Was a Pageant Kid

With his great hair, it comes as no surprise that Blake was in a few pageants as a kid. It was not his doing, though, his mother did all the entering for him and he has said that it was one of the worst experiences of his life.

Number Ten: He Was Invited To The Grand Ole Opry In The Modern Way

Unlike most members of the Opry, Shelton was asked to join via Twitter in 2010. His reply was ““Hmmm…Let me think…OK!!!!!!!!”

Number Nine: His Favorite Engagement Gifts from Ex-Wife Miranda Lambert Were Quite Manly

Shelton is a good ole’ boy and nothing says that more than his favorite engagement gifts from Miranda Lambert. Lambert gave Shelton matching his and hers flasks and shotguns. Of course the two had to try both out immediately. There is still so much to learn about Blake Shelton, so stay tuned for part two coming soon!
