UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- Blake Shelton likes his odds when it comes to this year's Grammy Awards.
Shelton's Mine Would Be You and Miranda Lambert's Mama's Broken Heart are both nominated for best country solo performance, doubling his chances of nabbing a golden gramophone in his home.
"I hope one of us wins that thing because I want one in my house for sure. The thing about an actual Grammy is if you set it up high enough on the shelf people can't read that plaque, and if somebody comes in the house and they're like, 'You got a Grammy.' It's like, 'Yeah. Oh yeah I got one.' And they don't actually read that it's to Miranda," Shelton said in an interview Tuesday while promoting the televised singing competition, The Voice.
Shelton has yet to win a Grammy; Lambert, his wife, won her first in 2011. Both of their tracks are also nominated for best country song, though the singers didn't earn nominations because they didn't write the tunes.
