Hey, it's Caddy, I've had the honor of knowing Blake Shelton for a long time, almost 20 years. I have some good stories I can share (and a few that I should maybe keep to myself). One thing I can say about him is that he is exactly how he seems and is a very kind person. He is also about as witty as they come. He has not changed a bit over the years since his first single, even as popular as he has become.

I was at Blake's bachelor party right before he married Miranda in Vegas, and no it was not your typical one. Blake wanted to have Karaoke, and we had a blast. I have a video on an old phone of him singing "Play that Funky Music." Miranda showed up later with her girlfriends and it was a night to remember.

Another time at the ACM Awards right after his 2nd single came out around 2003, Blake walked by me at a blackjack table. He sat down and did not have his wallet, so I gave him a hundred bucks. He lost every hand and I told him to not give up his singing job to be a professional gambler; he agreed.

The last time I saw him before the pandemic, I told him, "Hey man you never did pay me that a hundred bucks from 16 years ago." He laughed and said the statute of limitations expired a long time ago as he let out a big belly laugh. Well, maybe he was just a little short of cash that day. HMMM.

Those are just a few of my many stories about Blake. Now, to the really fun part. We're giving you a chance to win a digital download of Blake Shelton's new album called Body Language.
