So come to find out it was Miranda who informed Blake about his 3 CMA nominations during a phone call. When Miranda told Blake she'd tied her own record for the most nominations of any woman in CMA history, Blake could tell she seemed a little embarrassed about her good fortune. Or GREAT fortune. 9 nominations is a bucket load!
He tells People, "If it was anybody else, she probably wouldn't even talk about it, but with me she's pretty excited about it."
Blake is also excited to see those new country stars he helped shape from the The Voice, The Swon Brothers, get a Duo of the Year nomination.
He says, "They've worked really hard and to see them capitalize on the opportunity is just so gratifying."
Seems like we should be calling Blake the new Midas because everything he touches seems to turn to gold!
