Blake Shelton: GRAMMY® Winners Playlist

With the GRAMMY Awards only weeks away, we asked some of our favorite artists to make playlists of their favorite GRAMMY-winning songs from years past.

Country star, Voice coach, and social media funnyguy Blake Shelton created a list that does a smart job of blending country's exciting present and its historic past, with a cool selection of pop and soul songs included to round out the mix. It's a sort of cross-genre thinking that feels similar to the influences behind Blake's brand-new, pop-savvy single "Sure Be Cool If You Did."

All the artists on Blake's playlist are past GRAMMY winners. And from legends like Merle HaggardStevie WonderBruce Springsteen, and Willie Nelson on to Kelly Clarkson and Miranda Lambert (who happens to be Blake's wife), all also make for great listening. Dig in!
