Country music has its fair share of tall country singers, and at 6’5, Blake Shelton is one of the tallest male country singers today. It’s clear when you see images of Blake next to his wife, Gwen Stefani, who stands at 5’6, that he’s a big guy.

While to date, Lady A’s Charles Kelly and Trace Adkins tie for the tallest country singers, standing at 6’6 each, Blake is the superstar that most people think of when they talk about the height of country singers. Just this past May, his star shined brightly as he got his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, making him appear larger than life.

Shelton is a foot or more taller than several country superstars, including Carrie Underwood (5’2) and Kenny Chesney (5’5), as well as country icons Willie Nelson (5’5) and Dolly Parton (5’0).

Most of us would have to we look up to see Blake Shelton if he was standing next to us. And here, we point out five things that are also not as tall as this country superstar.

    Most of them stand about 6 feet tall. Even the fancy brands with all the bells and whistles stand lower than Blake. If Gwen ever needs something from the top of the frig, she just has to ask her man.

    There are some really long couches out there. But the average living room couch is a little over 6 feet in length. So if Blake wants to crash in your living room, odds are, his feet will be hanging over the edge of the couch.

    This is the trophy is awarded to the winner of the Indianapolis 500. It is one of the tallest trophies in sports. And while it stands 5’2 feet tall, it’s nowhere nearly as tall as Blake.

    Most motor scooters are about 5 and a half feet long. While a Harley Davidson motorcycle is seven feet in length, Blake stands a foot taller than a scooter standing on its back wheel.

    Yes, Shelton is taller than this Golden State Warriors’ 2-time MVP and 3-time NBA champion basketball player. Curry could very well be the most impactful point guard in NBA history. Blake did not play basketball in high school, but if he did, he could have gone NBA instead of CMA.
