The people have voted. And they voted for Blake Shelton‘s If I’m Honest Album.
Shelton became the first ever country artist to take home the award for Favorite Album during the People’s Choice Awards beating out Rihanna’s ANTI, Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman, Beyoncé’s Lemonade and Drake’s Views.
“It’s so cool to be recognized by the people who are spending the money and taking time out of their day to vote,” Shelton said. “I could not be more thankful. All I’ve ever wanted to do is sing country music, so to win Favorite Male Country Artist is incredible. And to be the first country artist to ever win Favorite Album is beyond words. I’m so proud of If I’m Honest and to know that it’s resonating with fans is why I make music.”
