Blake Shelton heads into next week’s CMA Awards with a total of five nominations including one for “Entertainer of the Year” and looks to repeat as winner of “Male Vocalist of the Year.” Shelton received nominations for “Album of the Year” for All About Tonight¸ his sixth studio album which was released in July and quickly reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. Shelton’s hit single from the album, “Honey Bee” yielded CMA Awards nominations for “Single of the Year” and “Music Video.”
Shelton holds the record for the fastest-selling digital Platinum single for a male country solo artist. The single held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country chart for four weeks in a row with over 40 million in audience. No country artist has held this record in almost six years. The single marks Shelton’s fourth consecutive No. 1 hit “Honey Bee,” “Who Are You When I’m Not Looking,” “All About Tonight” and “Hillbilly Bone.” Shelton has nine No. 1 hits and has not had a single peak outside the Top Ten since 2007.
Justin Moore heats up the stage with his recent #1 hit, “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” Having come a long way since his days in with a population of 300, Moore has been taking country music by storm since the release of his self-titled album in 2008. Hits such as, “Backwoods”, reaching #6, “How I Got to Be This Way” (#17) and “Back That Thing Up” (#38) have made Justin a true country music contender. Blake Shelton was the coach of Dia Frampton on the past season of NBC’s hit show “The Voice,” where the Utah-native was the runner-up.
