The people have spoken and Blake Shelton was officially crowned The Country Artist of 2019.

The 43-year-old singer accepted the honor on Sunday (Nov. 10) during the 2019 E! People’s Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

“I’m really glad I won this, because I was the only person at my table who hasn’t won anything tonight, and it was starting to get a little bit embarrassing. Zendaya was making fun of me earlier. I want to say thank you to the people, to the fans, country music fans and thank you to my NBC Voice family, it’s been awesome. It’s been an incredible ride,” the “Hell Right” singer said during his acceptance speech.

He then took the time to give his longtime girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, a shout-out from the stage.

“Thanks to Pink because now I know we can cuss on this show and I want to say Gwen Stefani, I love the s–t out of you. Thank you.” he added.

Shelton, who also took home the same award in 2018, beat out fellow country stars Luke Combs, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris for the E! People’s Choice Awards trophy.

The superstar is set to perform at Wednesday’s CMA Awards, airing live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday, Nov. 13 at 8/7c on ABC.
