Shelton Fan Votes
Winning a fan favorite award is no small deal and Shelton is clearly very excited to have been given this honor.
The American Music Awards likes to call themselves “the world’s largest fan-voted award show,” and consequently, fans vote on every award available. Each fan gets to cast their ballots to decide the nominees. Billboard Magazine and Billboard.com each host the voting, but more importantly, use their data on their mediums to help decide the winners.
So, all of the fans’ purchases, streams, radio plays, social media interaction, and touring help determine the winners. People are allowed to vote 30 times per day on their favorite artists. All in all, Shelton won this award because of his fans.
Indeed it is a huge honor to win a fan choice award, Shelton, just like his newest song, seems to be happy anywhere.
In conclusion, congratulations to Blake Shelton on Favorite Country Album.
