One of the more enduring images of Oklahoma's teacher's walkout this week has been students who bring their old, worn out and tattered textbooks to the Capitol to show legislators what they're working with in the classroom. 

Some have missing covers, missing pages or broken bindings. But none of them were likely used by an Oklahoma country music star. But one Ada student is doing just that. Shelly Parker posted a picture of her daughter Marley proudly holding up a textbook that had been used by Blake Shelton way back in 1982. Shelton is now 41.

Shelton, who grew up in Ada, apparently recorded his name along with other students who have used the book over the years.

The post, which was made public, has been shared on the social media platform more than 3,000 times.

"Marley is EXCITED that her “new” reader belonged to Blake Shelton, but I am EMBARRASSED!!!! I’m 40 and these people are my age!!!," Shelly Parker wrote.
