Blake Shelton started his release day this morning (3/2) by joining Reba McEntire to announce the ACM nominations live on CBS’s The Early Show. He scored a nod in the Vocal Event Of The Year category for “Hillbilly Bone” ft. Trace Adkins. The song is the fastest rising single of his career and the title track to his new Six-Pak album.
“This is the best day of my life,” said Shelton. “I got to read the nominations with the queen of country music, Reba. And, then I find out ‘Hillbilly Bone’ is nominated! I’m glad that my first nomination in years is with one of my great friends, Trace Adkins. The only thing that could make this day better is if Betty White was there to give me the award should I win!”
Also today, Shelton was set to appear on NBC’s Today show, and tomorrow (3/3) he visits Fox News Channel’s FOX & Friends and Hannity’s America. On Thursday he heads to Good Day New York and on the 22nd he stops by E!’s Chelsea Lately.
The new album is Shelton’s sixth studio effort and was produced by Scott Hendricks.
