At the 2016 American Music Awards, country music superstar Blake Shelton came out on top, taking home the trophy for Favorite Country Male. This was Shelton’s fourth nomination in that category, which he also won in 2011.
“This has been such a special year for me and the fans have been there all along,” said Shelton. “From the success of If I’m Honest, to the tour and now this is award, it is because of the fans and I’m so thankful. Y’all are the best!!”
The fans who voted him to win this award will also get a special surprise announcement later this afternoon. Keep an eye on his socials (Twitter:@blakeshelton and Facebook.com/BlakeShelton) throughout the day for more information.
Shelton’s new single “A Guy With A Girl” is currently climbing the charts, entering the Top 15 this week at country radio. The song is Shelton's third single from his chart topping new album If I'm Honest, which is the best-selling country album of 2016 and the only country album released this year to be certified Gold! The album has already yielded the hit singles “Came Here To Forget” and “She’s Got A Way With Words” and features three songs Shelton wrote including the gospel-hymn “Savior’s Shadow,” the hit song from the box office smash Angry Birds The Movie “Friends,” and “Go Ahead And Break My Heart,” a song he wrote and performs with Gwen Stefani.
Shelton is also back for season 11 of The Voice, and team Blake fields a powerful team with three contestants still left. The Emmy Award winning show airs Monday and Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
