You can tell from Blake Shelton's reaction to winning People's "Sexiest Man Alive" honors that the award is one to be taken lightly. The tall and talented Okie has been appreciative yet modest about the recognition and, at times, he's even self-deprecating. But his good friends, including Tim McGraw, have got his back.
McGraw and wife Faith Hill appeared on the nationally syndicated “Ty, Kelly & Chuck” radio show Thursday, and it turns out there are several country fans who would have liked to see the “Humble and Kind” singer win the magazine cover instead.
And those country fans aren’t shy about sharing their feelings.
McGraw read one tweet from a fan who said, “We all know that Blake Shelton is not the sexiest man alive, especially in country music. We know that nobody holds a candle to George Strait or Tim McGraw, so how about we redo the Sexiest Man Alive thing?”
After a solid chuckle, McGraw admitted, “I think Blake is pretty sexy,” and Hill added, “He has a great sense of humor, and that is sexy.”
Host Ty Bentli also shared a tweet that read, “Blake Shelton looks like the dad in a drug commercial where they list the side effects at the end while you watch him build a birdhouse.”
OK, we love Shelton to pieces, but that’s hilarious, y’all!
And we imagine Shelton would find it funny, too, because as Bentli confirmed, “The best part is, he was just in here and he totally will take this and he loves it.”
McGraw added, “When you’re the sexiest man alive, you can take anything.”
Shelton is sexy, McGraw is sexy, Hill is sexy, Bentli, Kelly and Chuck are sexy … there's just a whole lotta sexy goin' on in country music. But of that group, only Shelton, McGraw and Hill are nominated for Rare Country Awards.
Hill leads with four nominations, while Shelton and McGraw are tied with three apiece. It's up to you to decide the winners! Vote now through Dec. 13 at RareCountryAwards.com. Winners will be revealed during a livestreamed concert event on Dec. 14 in Nashville.
