She went on to tell People that he was pretty ideal for the spot.
Shelton cracked that his first reaction was "that y'all must be running out of people". 'Like, Wow, we're down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical'.
The musician credited his singer girlfriend, Gwen Stefani, for convincing him to accept the title. "I've been ugly my whole life", Shelton, 41, said in a statement on Tuesday.
She said: "It's interesting because I don't think any of those things like beauty or sexy or whatever way you want to describe humans is necessarily a physical thing that people are attracted to".
Be that as it may, a greater motivating force for the vocalist was having the capacity to stick it to his kindred mentor (and 2013 Sexiest Man Alive) Adam Levine. "I knew I was on to something!"
Shelton, whose album "Texoma Shore" is now topping the Billboard country charts, said that while he has the title, he may as well enjoy it. He shared an image on Instagram with the caption, "Don't hate me because I'm handsome".
Growing up, Shelton told People, he had some awkward years.
Last year, The Rock was named Sexiest Man Alive, and before that, David Beckham nabbed the honor. Despite everything i'm fat today. He hops on the treadmill to stay in shape, though he acknowledges the allure of chips and dip, a bag of Cheetos when he's starving and a trip to Sonic when he's back home in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Wow, I'm gonna look really good huh? "Every day that I'm around her, that's what my goal is".
