Many people don't know that Blake Shelton got his singing abilities from his mother. Dorothy Shackleford is a great vocalist and songwriter.


Country Rebel reported that in 2012, the two had a chance to sing a duet together. This happened during Shelton’s first Christmas Special.

Shelton collaborated with his mother, Shackleford, in 2012 to sing a duet of a Christmas song they had written together. The song was called Time for Me to Come Home.

They sang the song during the country singer’s Christmas Special called Blake Shelton's Not-So-Family Christmas. There he took to the stage and asked his talented mother to join him in singing the emotional duet.

The star said, "It's actually a song about how it's not Christmas unless you're with your mama." At the time, Shelton’s hour-long Christmas Special also had festive performances from other famous artists.


"The icing on the cake was having the opportunity to perform with my mom, a song we co-wrote together.”

People like Kelly Clarkson, Reba McEntire, Christina Aguilera, Jay Leno, and Larry the Cable Guy all had special appearances. The emotional Christmas song which Shelton and his mother performed was featured on his 2013 holiday album called Cheers, It's Christmas.


The song not only did wonders for the sales of the album but it also later inspired Shackleford to come out with her own novel. The novel was in a similar theme.


She collaborated with the author, Travis Thrasher. They transformed the record-breaking number into a novel of the same name.

In the same year, Huffington Post shared a clip where the singer opened up about his relationship with his mother. In the video he jokingly said that they were like "Ricky Ricardo and Lucy."

Shelton further revealed that his mother tended to pressure him into singing songs that she had written.
