out of the spotlight.)

Blake Shelton and his mom wrote a song
together. And as if that’s not already the sweetest thing you’ve ever heard, he talks about her in the most loving way in
the new issue of Ladies’ Home Journal. “My mom, Dorothy Shackleford, never pursued singing, but when I was growing
up, she sang on our karaoke machine. She and I wrote a song called ‘Time for Me to Come Home’ about how it’s not really Christmas
if you’re not home with your mom,” he explains. The song is on his Cheers, It’s Christmas album. Then he talks about
what Christmas morning was like at their house when Shelton was a kid. “My mom would go broke at Christmas just to see the
look on our faces when we’d open something we wanted,” he said.
