blake shelton cma awards 2013 CMA Awards 2013: Blake Shelton wins Male Vocalist, Album of the Year

It was a big night for “The Voice” coach Blake Shelton, as he won two big awards at the CMAs. The singer took home Album of the Year for “Based on a True Story” and Male Vocalist of the Year.
Shelton won Male Vocalist shortly after his wife, Miranda Lambert, won Female Vocalist of the Year. As she cried tears of joy, Shelton echoed Lambert’s acceptance speech, exclaiming, “I really, swear, did not think this was going to happen!”
Clearly overjoyed by his achievements, Blake finished his quick speech, saying, “Thank you to my wife, thank you fans, country radio … Thank you every body! Thank you!” This was the fourth time Shelton has won Male Vocalist of the year, but his first Album of the Year award.
Now he’s just got to take the awards with him to “The Voice” to intimidate his fellow coaches. Take that, Adam Levine.
