Congrats are in order for Blake Shelton! The country super star and The Voice judge not only just rocked the Microsoft Theater with a performance of “Every Time I Hear That Song,” but he also two People’s Choice Awards back to back. Shelton just earn the PCA for Favorite Male Country Artist and for Favorite Album.
Blake traded his guitar for the awards when Victoria Justice passed him the statues. Shelton makes history tonight as the first country artist to have his album win Favorite Album.
“Thank you to the hottest date here tonight, Gwen Stefani!,” said Blake as the camera panned to smiling Gwen in a frilly blue dress in the audience.
Blake’s 2016 album If I’m Honest dropped in May and featured Gwen Stefani and The Oak Ridge Boys. The album addressed the highs and lows Shelton’s 2015 and featured tracks such as “Came Here to Forget” and “Savior’s Shadow.”
“I know somewhere our there thinkin’ how did he win that? ,” Blake said with a smirk later in his speech. “This is an album full of drinking and tailgating and to that person I say, ‘You’re damn right it is.'”
Congrats to Blake on the double dose of winning at tonight’s 2017 People’s Choice Awards.
