Country music’s wild card and most envied fiance, Blake Shelton is another artist hoping to win big at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards.
With an award list slightly more modest than many of his fellow nominees, Last.fm Trends looks at Blake’s potential chances of adding to his collection.
All of Blake’s four award wins to date came in 2010, suggesting he may be on a roll heading into this year’s awards. One of them was an ACM Award for his track “Hillbilly Bone” which won Vocal Event of the Year, an award he’d been nominated in before but lost. This year he is nominated in the categories for Top Male Vocalist and Video of the Year for, again, “Hillbilly Bone”.
Aside from picking up awards Blake was also very musically active in 2010, releasing two EP’s – Hillbilly Bone in March and All About Tonight in August. Despite gaining considerable chart success (his nominated track “Hillbilly Bone” reached #1 in the Billboard Country Singles Chart), Blake’s latest weekly top tracks chart shows no sign of any of the tracks scaling the top spaces.
The top spots are instead occupied by earlier material, most notably with tracks such as “Ol’ Red” and “Austin” from his 2001 self-titled debut album. The album has been scrobbled 437,078 times, making it his most popular to date.
