The country superstar is in for a big night on Feb. 15, as he is nominated for a Grammy alongside fellow singer Ashley Monroe. The two have been nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 58th Grammy Awards for their duet, "Lonely Tonight."
Although Shelton is excited, he believes someone else deserves the award... Joey + Rory.
On Feb. 1, Shelton responded to a fan's question with a sweet Tweet. The fan asked Shelton, "what are you gonna do if you win a Grammy??"
Husband and wife duo, Joey + Rory, were nominated for the same category as Shelton with the song, "If I Needed You."
When the news broke of the nomination, Rory was quick to tell his wife. He shared the special moment with fans via Facebook, saying,
… Woke my bride up this morning with a baby in my arms and the news that our version of ‘If I Needed You’ was nominated for a Grammy. As her excitement and tears flowed into mine. She said, ‘how can that be?’
….the song received no radio airplay … no press … no critical acclaim … and the only music video we made for it was to celebrate the day our little Indiana was born.
God is so good.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Following the news, the couple interview with the Tennessean and Rory shared his wife's newest goal: to see the Grammys, to be there for the duo's album release, and to celebrate her daughter's second birthday. Rory said,
Joey set a personal goal (Monday) morning of being here for all three. She’s so faith-filled and determined, don't be surprised if you see us sitting in the audience at the award show, holding hands and smiling when they open the ballot and read the winner’s name.
We pray Joey will be there for all of these big milestones!
