Country music star Blake Shelton‘s first job as a 15-year-old was far from glamorous! The Voice coach got his first taste of the real world by roofing houses in his hometown of Ada, Oklahoma with his stepfather as his boss.

“I did it for two summers,” Shelton shared with PEOPLE in a past interview, “It made me want to be a country singer.”

We can see how climbing around a roof in the hot sun could be a real turn-off. After graduating from high school at 17-years-old, the star relocated to Nashville, Tennessee to pursue a country music career.
