Inside The ACM Entertainer Of The Year Nominees: Blake Shelton

The most prestigious honor at the Academy of Country Music Awards each year is the Entertainer of the Year. And among this year’s five nominees is Blake Shelton.

Is he “America’s husband” or our “drunk uncle”? He’s certainly one of the genre’s highest-profile (and most well-loved) artists today. And his reputation has only broadened since he became a coach on TV’s The Voice. He’s married to another country superstar Miranda Lambert, and he’s one of the loudest (and funniest) voices on social media.

Oh, and he’s also cohosting this year’s ACM Awards with Luke Bryan.

Check out what our Radio.com panel of experts has to say about Blake–and see what led to his ACM nomination–in this installment of Inside the Entertainer of the Year.

Our panel of experts included Marci Braun and Drew Walker of Chicago’s US99.5; Dr. Don, Rachael Hunter, and Steve Grunwald of Detroit’s 99.5 WYCD; The Boot‘s Beville DunkerleyGrady Smith and Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly; author Alan Light (The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, and the Unlikely Ascent of “Hallelujah”); and Radio.com’s Annie ReuterKurt Wolff, and Courtney Smith.
