Blake Shelton Wants a Grammy for the House, Be It His or Miranda’s
In a house with not one, but two Grammy nominees, you think things would get a little competitive. That’s not the case for Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert. In fact, Shelton says he just wants a Grammy for his house, no matter whose it is.
Shelton and Lambert are both nominated for Best Country Solo Performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Shelton is up for ‘Mine Would Be You’ and Lambert is getting praise for ‘Mama’s Broken Heart,’ so his the couple’s odds of winning are pretty good.
“I hope one of us wins that thing because I want one in my house for sure,” ‘The Voice’ coach admits. “The thing about an actual Grammy is if you set it up high enough on the shelf, people can’t read that plaque, and if somebody comes in the house and they’re like, ‘You got a Grammy,’ it’s like, ‘Yeah. Oh yeah I got one.’ And they don’t actually read that it’s to Miranda.”
Of course, Shelton has some catching up to do. He has never won a Grammy, but his wife snagged her first in 2011. The singer is also up for Best Country Album for his release ‘Based on a True Story…’ but the competition will be tough. In that category, he faces Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and Kacey Musgraves.
“It’s just awesome to be included and thought of in that group of artists,” Shelton reveals. “This is a window of time that will go by quickly and I know that and I want to enjoy it.”
