The popular “Voice” coach opened up about the first job that somehow turned him on the path of becoming the iconic country singer he is today.

Speaking during a special interview with People about a new series “Voice Coaches on Blast,” 42-year-old Blake Shelton revealed that he once used to roof houses in Ada, Oklahoma, which is also his hometown.

The country icon added that he continued the job for about two summers, but in the course of that time, the job made him want to be a country singer.

Shelton revealed about his job during a rapid-fire styled interview, in which he also talked about several of his other “first” experiences and favorites.

One of the most surprising things about Shelton is that he once used to sport a long hair in the style of a mullet. However, not many remember it because he always donned a cowboy hat in the first few years of his career’s beginning.

In another surprising revelation, the “Voice” isn’t really the first reality TV competition that he has been a part of. He previously coached on a show of similar style named “Clash of Chorus.”

Very few people know that the singing legend has derived his amazing vocal talent from his mother, Dorothy Shackleford, who is a gifted country singer.
