Believe it or not, in between his time flirting with Adam Levine on NBC‘s The Voice, making number one records, and DWT (drinking while tweeting), Blake Shelton actually does a lot of good in the world. (No, really!) In fact, he and wife Miranda Lambert are being honored for their philanthropy in VH1′s upcoming Do Something Awards. What did they er– do, and what other couples are nominated? Keep reading for all the details.
When you think of Blake Shelton, a few things probably come to mind, and we’re willing to bet that philanthropy isn’t among them (at least not in the top 5).
At the end of August, that just may change!
Shelton and wife, Miranda Lambert, are nominated as a couple for their charity work in VH1′s 2012 Do Something Awards.
And no, it wasn’t for Miranda’s tireless efforts to let the world know how much she despises Chris Brown, or her rant against…what’s his name again? Oh, yeah…Eric Church, defending artists who’ve gotten their start on reality competitions.
This time, the chart-topping country couple is being recognized for their benefit concert, which raised a whopping $70,000 for a veterans’ program and an animal shelter in Oklahoma.
Other so-called power couples nominated in the category are Jay-Z and Beyonce, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, Mariah Carey and Nick
Carey Cannon, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia di Rossi, and Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
Congrats to Blake and Miranda.
The Do Something Awards will air August 21 at 9p.m. ET on VH1. You can cast your vote for the couple you think deserves to win by visiting http://www.vh1.com/shows/events/do_something_awards/2012.
