    One of country music's biggest stars is comforting a Massachusetts school mourning the deaths of three students.

    Blake Shelton recorded a minute-long message that was included in a longer tribute video to the Quaboag Regional Middle/High School students who died in a Nov. 6 car crash in West Brookfield.

    Shelton's brother died in a crash nearly three decades ago.

    Shelton said in the message: "I can understand how you guys feel. It's the worst possible feeling. It's confusion. It's anger. It's just an overall brokenness that's just gonna take a lot of time to heal."
