Blake Shelton Gushes About Wife Miranda Lambert & Taylor Swift: "She's a Once-in-a-Lifetime Star"
Blake Shelton has found a ton of success both in and outside of the country music world thanks to his stint on The Voice, but his wife, Miranda Lambert, says her hunky husband is and always will be a down-to-earth, Southern guy!
"We’re really normal people. We go home to a farm in a little-bitty town in Oklahoma and all of this goes away. I could just tell he felt the way I did tonight looking in his eyes, like, ‘Holy crap, what are we doing up here?'" Miranda told reporters at Academy of Country Music Awards last night. "We’re really thankful and humble and excited to celebrate together."
Blake walked away with the award for top Male Vocalist, while Miranda won not only Female Vocalist, but Album of the Year for Four the Record. And although Blake didn't win the title of Entertainer of the Year, he's thrilled that the award went to Taylor Swift, whom he calls a "once-in-a-lifetime star."
"I'd hoped I would win, but I remember saying Taylor deserves it. She truly does," Blake explained in the press room at the ACMS. "I don't think there's anybody with half a brain who'd stand up here and say otherwise. I mean, she's done a lot for us in country music. She’s just one of those once-in-a-lifetime stars that comes along and makes a difference, and we're lucky enough in country music to call her one of us."
As for whether Miranda deserved to win Album of the Year, Blake believes she has earned everything that has come her way.
"As a fellow artist, it’s refreshing to see Miranda win those awards," he explained. "I’m glad they recognize how great Miranda’s records are and how unique they are and how she pushes the envelope and tries new sounds and new things all the time, and she nails it every time. I’m blown away by her, I really am. As her husband, I want to see her win all that stuff."
Blake is just the sweetest!
