Blake Shelton is on a roll. The 44-year-old country music singer took home the award for Top Country Artist at the 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards on Sunday.
“Wow. This is crazy. This is absolutely insane,” Blake said at The Barker Hangar in Southern California. “I’m so happy that we’re able to have this award show in spite of everything,” The Voice coach added.
Shelton expressed his gratitude towards his record label and thanked the fans who cast thousands of voices to make this big win possible. “Me and my team should be thanking all the fans out there who voted for this thing,” the “Happy Anywhere” singer explained.
“And I don’t spend a lot of time on social media anymore, but when I do look at it, all I see is fans retweeting and voting for—lately, for the People’s Choice Awards. Thank you so much,” he said. Before stepping off the stage, Blake thanked one special VIP fan, Gwen Stefani.
“Thank you to my new fiancée, Gwen Stefani,” he said. “That’s S-t-e-f-a-n-I, if you need to Google it to figure out who she is. Thanks for the inspiration and I love you guys, thank you.”
Less than a month ago, Blake had confirmed his engagement on social media. The No Doubt alum went on Instagram after the award was announced, and revealed that she was in the car outside the venue cheering Blake on. It is hardly surprising that they are touted as one of the most adorable celebrity couples. Watch this space for the latest celebrity news.
