Blake Shelton Opens Up About Brother’s Death

Blake Shelton’s older brother, Richie, died when Shelton was just 14 years old, and in a new interview, the country singer and star of The Voice admits, “I’m still not over it.”

“Look, you’re never gonna get over it,” Shelton tells Cowboys & Indians. “For me, my brother was my big brother. I mean, I wanted to be him. I wanted to look like him, dress like him, listen to what he listened to and be into the things he was into. So when he was killed in a car accident, it was literally like the world went silent. There was a void in my world all of a sudden, and I’m still not over it. I’m just used to it.”
