Blake Shelton Turns 28 … Again

What Difference Does a Decade Make, Anyway?

Don’t think I’m going to sit here and judge Blake Shelton for turning 28 again Wednesday (June 18). Heck, I’ve been turning 21 again for the last …well, that’s not important.

What is important is that we take a moment today to celebrate the birthday of country music’s most beloved wiseass and ambassador who is now officially 38 years old.

Shelton got the conversation rolling Tuesday night on Twitter by posting the gem, “Still can’t believe I’m turning 28 tomorrow … oh well,” which prompted a barrage of loving and supportive and occasionally hilarious tweets from fans.

One fan tweeted, “You don’t look a day over 20,” which got a chuckle from Shelton. Another post was a sweet video montage of birthday messages put together by fans from all over. The outpouring prompted Shelton to gush back to them, “This makes my week!!.I love y’all.”

What a perfect gift to give the guy who pretty much has everything he ever wanted.

Think about it. What do you get Blake Shelton for his birthday?

He has one of the hottest careers in entertainment, a smokin’ hot and successful wife in Miranda Lambert, hit songs, a wildly popular tour, high visibility on The Voice and a beautiful farm in Oklahoma.

I am curious to know what Lambert is eyeing as Shelton’s birthday present this year. He recently came up with an extremely thoughtful anniversary present for her when he got their old boat running just in time for them to rest and relax in the aftermath of the CMA Music Festival.

Something tells me she’s planning to make Shelton’s big day just as special.
