Blake Shelton's brother may be gone but he's certainly not forgotten.
On Monday, the 41-year-old country star shared a moving message about his late sibling, 27 years after he died.
"Lost my brother 27 years ago today. I was only 14 at the time but it changed my life forever," Shelton wrote. "Made me realize that life is precious and there's no time like RIGHT NOW to go for it... We still miss you Richie!!"

Richie Shelton was 24 when he was killed in a car accident in 1990.
Though that loss will always weigh heavy on Shelton, it's good to see he has the love and support of those in his life. On the crooner's latest album, Texoma Shore, Shelton sweetly muses on his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.
