2017 People’s Choice Awards Country Winners List
In addition to earning a win in the Favorite Male Country Artist category, Shelton received the all-genre Favorite Album award -- the first country artist to do so in the history of the PCAs.
Shelton received both awards at once, following his performance. During his speech, he thanked "the hottest date here tonight, Gwen Stefani, who's sitting out there." The singer also addressed those watching who might be wondering how he won.
"'I mean, how did he win Album of the Year? Isn't that just a country album full of stereotypical country songs?'" Shelton imagined a viewer asking. "And to that person, I say, 'You damn right it is!'"
In addition to the two categories in which he won, Shelton also received a nomination for the all-genre Favorite Male Artist award. The Voice, the TV singing competition on which Shelton is a judge, was nominated for a 2017 People’s Choice Award, for Favorite Competition TV Show, as well -- and won, for the fourth year in a row.
But Shelton was not the night's only country winner, though: Carrie Underwood took home Favorite Female Country Artist, and Little Big Town earned Favorite Country Group. Keith Urban, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Florida Georgia Line and the Zac Brown Band were also nominated at the 2017 People's Choice Awards.
