For the past three years Blake Shelton has co-hosted The Academy of Country Music Awards with his buddy Luke Bryan. A few months ago Blake bowed out and was replaced by Dierks Bentley. At Monday's ACM Award nomination announcements, Shelton's name was no where to be found. Coincidence? This one has me scratching my head. Blake had 4 number 1 hits to bring to the table for the 2015 nomination consideration. It's not like he was slacking off. And, he's an award's show darling. But no worries, he took it all in stride and with a sense of humor, as he does. Check out the tweet-master's response below.
Taste of Country tweeted out: We hate that @BlakeShelton was snubbed by the #ACMawards this year!"...which prompted The Voice coach to play along:
Oh well.... I just have to do better. Working on it now! https://t.co/BkM81Dj4R0

Meanwhile, he has been working, very hard...on a brand new album with plenty of material for inspiration! There's a divorce from a country superstar, a new famous rock star love interest, who comes with a ready- made family, a high profile show, hit songs, tabloid accusations, saving lives and his ranch in Oklahoma. And that's just skimming the surface. "Gonna" be a interesting collection of songs, No Doubt! (Sorry, had to do it.)
