Blake Shelton Featured As First Country Artist For People’s Sexiest Man Alive

Blake Shelton has been selected as the first country music artist for People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive list.

Shelton, who coaches NBC’s The Voice, said exclusively to the magazine, “Y’all must be running out of people. Like, Wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”

Fellow The Voice coach, Adam Levine, was picked as the only other, and first musician for People‘s 2013 Sexiest Man. Shelton’s comments continued of his 2017 ‘SMA’ appointment:

It’s going to be used in every conversation, whether it’s at The Voice, or at the feed in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, or in a conversation with a doctor,” he says. “When [people] would say to Adam, ‘Mr. Sexy,’ you’d always see him go, ‘Well, awwww…’ If you say that to me, it’s going to be, ‘You’re damn right, I’m Mr. Sexy! I’ve been ugly my whole life, if I can be sexy for a year, I’m taking it. I’m taking it.

The 41 year old, 6’5″ Oklahoman released his latest project, Texoma Shore on Nov. 3.
