A new book about Blake Shelton has hit the shelves. Blake Shelton: Happy Anwywhere was written by a longtime friend of the country superstar named Carol Cash Large.
Large helped move the award-winning musician to Nashville just two weeks after he graduated high school and has been with him every step of the way since.
According to the book’s description, “[Large] takes you backstage for personal and unique insight into the life of the young singer. From Shelton’s work with producer Bobby Braddock, recording his number 1 song “Austin,” and performing on the Grand Ole Opry to his record-breaking seventeen consecutive number 1 songs and beyond, she has been right there.”
The book shares her favorite stories, delves into his personal life and includes fifty personal photos of the “Happy Anywhere” singer.
Blake Shelton wrote the forward to the book which reads, “Growing up in Ada, OK, with absolutely zero connection to the music industry made my dream of making it in country music feel like a crazy fantasy. Luckily for me, as a very young teenager, I met Larry and Carol Large, who also shared the same love for country music as I did!!!”
“Even though we really had no clue how I was gonna make it, we all believed somehow I would…These stories of our journey are directly from Carol’s point of view. I wouldn’t trade these times in my life for the world and I hope you love Carol and Larry’s stories as much as I love Carol and Larry themselves. I would still be roofing houses in Ada, OK, without them,” he concludes.
