Blake Shelton Says He Would've Warned His Younger Self About This

Blake Shelton is celebrating the 20th anniversary of his first Number One hit,"Austin". He was asked what advice he'd give to his younger self, and he went with a carefully worded, very thoughtful message about life's lessons, according to People

"I would have told that kid, 'Hey man, the mullet's not as cool as you think it is.'" He did admit that he and the mullet should NOT have burned the candle at both ends back then. He also said, "I would've told myself to get more rest. When I started I was 24 and lived life to the max. It's probably why I ran out of battery so soon."

Blake is only 44, but he's already in old man mode saying, "These days I'm just kind of a slow slug. Luckily I got the job on 'The Voice' and I get to sit in the red chair most of the time for a living."
