Before The Voice to me Blake was Kelly's country singer friend that she shared a manager with. So I knew he existed, but I could not name one song he sang. I didn't answer the poll since I think I kind of lie in between yes and no, haha.

I had heard "Austin", and I knew it was by him, but never really dove into his catalogue previously. But yeah, I knew he existed as well. It was after he joined the Voice that I heard his first album.

Sure did, went to a number of his concerts pre-Voice too. Thinking back, I guess I followed country music a bit more then than I do now because I knew his music, Blake and Miranda were a big thing, he was a judge on Nashville Star the season Kacey Musgraves was on there. I also knew of him from another show he did on NBC called Clash of the Choirs. Anyone remember that one?? lol

Never heard of him. Even in the country realm, I only followed Martina, Faith, Carrie(Starting after her Idol win) Reba, George Strait, Tim McGraw, Rascal Flatts. 

 

I couldn't even see him through Kelly or Miranda since I didn't follow their careers that closely. I just saw them as casual rising singers I would listen to on radio. It wasn't until I actually heard of The Voice and Hey Monday's lead singer competing on the 3rd Season(I thought it was a cool band and I watched the underrated ones closely) So Cassadee was really the reason how I got to know Blake(My lowkey emo phase founded The Voice lmao) 

 

Heck, I saw Idol and AGT superior to this new show, if it wasn't for Cassadee/Hey Monday's appearance, I probably would have never gotten into it the way I did.

If you were a country music person, you knew who Blake was, but he hadn't crossed over into more popular culture. He was the reigning CMA male vocalist of the year before he was hired as a coach on the voice, and he hosted ACM's that spring (after he had been hired to coach, but before it began airing) with Reba.

I knew of him as in I knew his name I think, but I didn't know anything about him and didn't listen to his music. I've still barely listened to his music now anyway LOL

You mean back when he made real, decent country music?  Yes of course I knew who he was.  No denying that the show is what made him a household name tho.

Not at all, I don't live in the US and country music is almost non existent here, so that's why.

 

I started watching on S9 and he was the only unfamiliar coach for me. I was very surprised when I found out that he had won the most out of all coaches.
