Shy Blakeman calls Kilgore, Texas home. Country music wasn't always in Shy's blood. The first album he ever bought was from the rap group Public Enemy and he only began singing at age 15. Now, Shy is all about his music, citing his personal goal as being able to make a successful living playing music. He counts playing guitar and the mandolin as his other musical talents.
If Shy could perform a duet with one artist, it would be Bonnie Raitt. And although he doesn't sing karaoke, he imagines he would belt out "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey for his debut. Heroes? Shy has one: his mom.
