Singer James Blunt credits being sent to a British boarding school at just seven years old with inspiring his songwriting. The You're Beautiful star recalls the "intense" emotions he felt when he was separated from his parents as a child every time he writes a song. He says, "Being sent away to boarding school at seven is as great an inspiration as any songwriter could have - to be taken away from one's family and locked away for 10 years. "It does create an incredible intensity of emotion."
