Country Music poster boy Blake Shelton took himself home another award at the CMT Music Awards last night, but it wasn’t the one he expected. Shelton is CMT’s first “Social Superstar,” and graciously accepted the award in typical Shelton manner, by being completely honest. He reportedly told fans and peers, “CMT’s Social Superstar, that’s not what I was going for but what the hell. I have a few drinks and get on Twitter once in a while. I didn’t know you could get paid for that but damn.” Yes,¬†The Voice¬†star has proven that his “what the hell” attitude has landed him a lot more than just an award on stage, his continued success on the charts, on television, and even in his romantic life, seems to all stem from his honest charm. His latest album is even titled, If I’m Honest. Congrats Blake!
