Blake Shelton Was Socially Distanced Before It Was Cool

Blake Shelton Was Socially Distanced Before It Was Cool

While many artists have had to adapt their ways of doing their jobs, and finding music…for Blake Shelton, it turns out that he’s been getting socially distanced music for a decade now.

Blake says “Finding music is no different during this pandemic, and the shutdown and quarantine phase…it’s no different than it’s been the last ten years, because I don’t live in Nashville, I live in Oklahoma, and then when I’m not there, I’m traveling, or I’m in LA filming The Voice. So, most of the music is either emailed to me, or sent to me on a disc, that I just listen to on my own time. So, that part of it hasn’t been much different.”

Blake and Gwen Stefani are nominated for ACM Music Event of the Year for one of those socially distanced discovered songs – “Nobody But You.” Find out if they take home the trophy for it when the ACM Awards air on April 18th

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
