Michael Bublé has revealed he was inspired to become a singer by fellow Canadian Bryan Adams’ 1984 album, Reckless.

Speaking to NationalPost.com 37-year-old Bublé paid tribute to Adams saying: ''I was nine years old when I bought this album, it wasn't even a CD, it was a cassette, and I remember going: 'This is a guy from Vancouver; if he can make it, maybe I can, too.'

"Reckless has the greatest songs: Heaven, Cuts Like a Knife, Run to You, One Night Love Affair, so many. I remember studying the album cover, like - someday."

He also remembered the excitement he felt when he wrote his first hit, Home, although confesses it has faded a little over time.

He said: "One thing I do remember is I wrote a song called Home, and I remember thinking, 'God, this is a good song. I wrote a good song.'

"Then I remember the 57th million time I sang it, thinking: 'I don't know if I want to sing this another 57 million times.' Then, of course, I sang it a billion times again."

Michael's new album To Be Loved is out now.
