Blake Shelton’s “God’s Country” was named Single of the Year at the ACM Awards.
Blake scored his 26th No. 1 single with the tune in July 2019. Penned by Michael Hardy, Jordan Schmidt and Devin Dawson, “God’s Country” is Blake’s first win in the ACM Single of the Year category.
“This is such a powerful song and I’m so proud to be a part of it,” said Blake in July 2019. “When I first heard the song I thought it sounded like a remedy. Like a cure. It just sounds like a missing link in country music for the last 10 or 12 years. It feels like a combination of ‘Ole Red’ and ‘Country Boy Can Survive’ to me, which definitely have a place in country music. Those songs are just rare.”
The ACM Awards aired live from Nashville on Sept. 16 with first-time host Keith Urban. The show took place at three iconic Nashville institutions: the Grand Ole Opry House, The Bluebird Cafe and Ryman Auditorium.
