2012 CMA Awards: Blake Shelton Takes Home Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Song of the Year!
Let’s all raise a glass (or three) to one Blake Shelton. Last night, the rootinest, tootinest Voicecoach took home three major titles at the 46th Annual Country Music Association Awards (CMAs.)
First, he and his wife, Miranda Lambert, both accepted the Song of the Year award for their ballad, “Over You.” The touching tune was written for Blake’s brother who passed away after a car accident when Blake was just 14. Miranda turned to tears as Blake talked about the emotional journey that had led them to write the song, and the couple received a standing ovation from the CMA crowd.
Up next, Blake snagged Male Vocalist of the Year, beating out Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, and Keith Urban. Blake had won the same award last year, but was truly shocked when it came time for the biggest honor of the night, Entertainer of the Year.
For the past few years, Taylor Swift, had dominated the category — both at the CMA Awards and at the ACM Awards — but last night, the title went to Blake.
“I don’t know how this happened,” he said when accepting the award. “I love it, though!”
How adorable! Do you think Blake deserved his awards? Weigh in below!
