You can tell from Blake Shelton’s reaction to winning People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” honors that the award is one to be taken lightly. The tall and talented Okie has been appreciative, yet modest about the recognition and, at times, he’s even self-deprecating. But his good friends, like Tim McGraw, have got his back.

Sort of.

Tim and wife Faith Hill appeared on the nationally-syndicated “Ty, Kelly & Chuck” radio show Nov. 16, and it turns out there are several country fans who would have liked to see the “Humble and Kind” singer win the magazine cover instead.

And those country fans aren’t shy about sharing their feelings.

Tim read one tweet from a fan who said, “We all know that Blake Shelton is not the sexiest man alive, especially in country music. We know that nobody holds a candle to George Strait or Tim McGraw, so how about we redo the Sexiest Man Alive thing?”

After a solid chuckle, Tim admitted, “I think Blake is pretty sexy,” and Faith added, “He has a great sense of humor, and that is sexy.”

No doubt, Faith!

Host Ty Bentli also shared a tweet that read, “Blake Shelton looks like the dad in a drug commercial where they list the side effects at the end while you watch him build a birdhouse.”

OK, we love Blake to pieces, but that’s hilarious, y’all!

And we imagine Blake would find it funny, too, because as Ty confirmed, “The best part is, he was just in here and he totally will take this and he loves it.”

Tim added, “When you’re the sexiest man alive, you can take anything.”


Also true.
