Go inside the Blake Shelton childhood home and see where an epic country music career began
It’s no wonder Blake Shelton reached musical superstar status—he grew up on Broadway! But not that Broadway. His childhood home in Ada, OK, is located on South Broadway Boulevard, and knowing what we do now about Shelton’s stunning future success, it seems the perfectly named street for a superstar of his stature to get an inspiring start.
And now you too have the chance to begin your own musical journey drawing from the same inspiration and environment, since Shelton’s mother, Dorothy, has listed the three-bedroom, 2.5-bath home for a very reasonable $250,000.
I chatted with listing agent Tyler Thompson about the home for an article on realtor.com, and he said there’s no celebrity tax on the current list price, meaning that the family isn’t asking a premium for the place just because a superstar grew up there. “It’s a lot of house for the money, and a fair price for the area,” he says of the 3,140-square-foot home, which was remodeled since Shelton grew up and moved out.
Thompson notes some of the home’s virtues include an updated kitchen,
an enclosed porch,
But the home’s most striking feature is the “rustic room,” which has been paneled with reclaimed barn wood and made to look like an Old Western town, complete with an outhouse door and shingled roof. It’s a new addition, built especially for Dorothy, according to Thompson.
Shelton’s mother moved to the Lake Texoma area a few years ago and had rented out the Ada house out. Even though Blake and Dorothy have Texoma Lake homes about an hour outside of Ada, they still visit Ada frequently, as they have many relatives in the town of about 18,000, according to a local. Blake Shelton also has another home and some businesses in nearby Tishomingo.
Of course Shelton spends a good portion of his time these days in Los Angeles, serving as a judge on the NBC’s “The Voice,” stealing talented contestants from Adam Levine, and stealthy kisses from paramour Gwen Steffani. His music career hasn’t missed a beat, either. Singles from his latest album, “If I’m Honest,” continue to top the charts.
