Hospital Honors Blake Shelton's Father

(Radio.com) Blake Shelton's father is being honored by a hospital in Shawnee, Okla. The singer posted a photo of the fountain located at St. Anthony's hospital new wing that pays tribute to the late, Richard Lee Shelton, who passed away in 2012.

Richard "Dick" Shelton was hospitalized in December of 2011 with pneumonia. At the American Country Awards that year, his son sent him a shout out form the stage.

"I want to say hi to my dad back home he's been having a pretty rough couple of weeks, and I know he's watching tonight," Shelton said. "I love you, Dad, and I dedicate this to you, man. Thank you." Read more here.
