Blake Shelton's Tearful CMA Speech and Full Winners List

When Blake Shelton isn’t fighting with Christina Aguilera or getting especially bromantic with Adam Levine on “The Voice,” he sings.

And accepts major awards to country boot like this year’s country music award for “Entertainer of the Year,” in addition to his third consecutive “Male Vocalist of the Year” and his duet with wife Miranda Lambert for “Song of the Year.” (I’m sure we’ll see all three of these make cameos on “The Voice” next season as he tries to win contestants over to his team. Shameless!)

The most heartfelt moment came when accepting that last trophy with Miranda for a song the real life couple wrote called “Over You” about the death of Blake’s brother Richie in a car accident 15 years ago.

"For me as a songwriter that is as personal as I can get," said Shelton on stage. "So that songwriter award, song of the year award, it will have its own shelf. It will have spotlights on it and an alarm and everything. Trip wires and there will be a land mine if you walk towards it. It is a real big deal to Miranda and I."
