Blake Shelton Says Taylor Swift "Truly Deserved" the ACM Entertainer of the Year Award
If you know someone who is irritated that TAYLOR SWIFT picked up another Entertainer of the Year award, send them over to BLAKE SHELTON. He totally has her back and believes she's deserving of the trophy. That's what Blake was telling everyone backstage at the ACMs. He said, quote, "Taylor deserves it, she truly does. I don't think there's anybody with half a brain that would stand up here and say otherwise. "She's done a lot for us in country music, but take that out of the mix even and she's just one of those once in a lifetime stars that comes along that makes a difference and we're lucky enough in country music to call her one of us. "And that's pretty cool." Of course, it wouldn't be a Blake Shelton speech without some of his brilliant irreverence. He then added, "(But) I'm always gonna make fun of her in my monologues, so she might as well get used to that."
