OFFSTAGE: Blake Shelton Names His Grammy Favorites

Published on January 16, 2013 by CMT News

Blake Shelton
(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Sure, celebs are celebs. But, they’re country fans, too. Especially Blake
Shelton
. Because when he put together his playlist
of Grammy-winning songs
, it’s packed with country. Not necessarily the current stuff but still very country. He definitely
has tastes that lean a little 1980 something, with Rodney Crowell‘s
“After All This Time” from 1987, Merle Haggard‘s “That’s the Way Love
Goes” from 1984 and George Jones‘ “He Stopped Loving Her Today” from
1980. But Shelton even went back as far as 1975 when he put the classic Willie
Nelson
“Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain” on the list. And maybe in the name of keeping the peace at home — or just because
it’s one of the best country songs we’ve heard in ages — he has his wife Miranda
Lambert
‘s “The House That Built Me” on his
list, too. The other songs Shelton loves include artists Kelly Clarkson,
Stevie Wonder, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen. What Grammy winning songs would make your playlist?
