Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert Win Big at American Country Awards!
Blake Shelton may have had kind of a crappy night on the December 11 episode of The Voice, but he did alright by a mile at the fourth annual American Country Awards! While Blake was saying goodbye to his final contender, Cole Vosbury, he was winning awards in absentia at the ACAs.
By the end of the night, Blake had won Album of the Year for “Based on a True Story...”, and three honors for his single “Sure Be Cool If You Did” and its accompanying music video. Talk about a night of highs and lows! Meanwhile, his partner in crime, Miranda Lambert, didn’t do too bad either, picking up guitar trophies for Female Artist of the Year and Single of the Year for “Mama’s Broken Heart”. Despite the pile of awards they received,
Miranda and Blake didn’t exactly clean up. Blake had been nominated for Artist of the Year awards both in the overall and male categories, which both went to Luke Bryan. Somehow, though, we doubt these two country juggernauts have too many complaints. At their current rate of accolade accumulation, Blake and Miranda are going to need to build a wing onto their home just to house their trophy room.
Sadly, one honor Blake won’t be taking home this month is that of The Voice Season 5’s winning coach. Though his artists have finished on top the last three seasons, his reign came to an end Tuesday when America’s votes failed to keep blues artist Cole in the competition. With both Blake and Cee Lo Green out of contenders, the December 17 finale is a showdown between Season 1 winner Adam Levine and Christina Aguilera, who is still gunning for her first win.
