The Voice star looked so different rocking long, glossy, curly locks and extended sideburns instead of his usual salt and pepper hue in a throwback photo shared on Instagram. The image appears to have been taken at the start of Blake's career, although his style hasn't changed as much as his hair.

While he loves to don a colorful plaid shirt nowadays, in the photo, Blake wore a dark grey shirt over a simple T-shirt which he teamed with a tan jacket with fringe detailing and a classic cowboy hat.

Captioning the youthful image, he wrote: "It's all that I know how to be… #ComeBackAsACountryBoy."

A third remarked: "You were so cute! You still are." A fourth added: "Still as handsome now as he was then! Gwen is a lucky woman, and he is a lucky man."

Blake's throwback comes after he invited six-year-old Wyatt McKee up on stage with him in Oklahoma last week to perform a rendition of God's Country.

The little boy was spotted by Blake after he held up a sign which read: "Your smallest, biggest fan from Lake Texoma, 6 years old waiting on a heart transplant."

Blake reacted by reminding the crowd: "Think y'all are having a bad day? Put that in perspective right there, man."

The moment was shared on social media by Wyatt's mother, Harley McKee, with Blake reposting the message on Twitter and writing: "This little buddy made my night. Thank you for singing 'God's Country' with me Wyatt!"

According to his mom's message, Wyatt suffers from a condition called hypoplastic left heart syndrome in which the left side of the heart is badly underdeveloped.
