Blake Shelton has had an outstanding year both professionally and personally, so why not polish it off by crowning him People's Sexiest Man Alive (2017)? Rumor has it Shelton will be given the title this week, with Gossip Cop outlining why they think he's the man filling this year's hole.

No doubt, he's a strong contender.

Shelton recently released his Texoma Shore album, which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums Chart. With a primetime slot as a coach on The Voice and a 2018 tour in the works, fans just can't seem to get enough of the tall, blue-eyed country singer. Nevermind that he's hilarious and wins people over both on Twitter and weekly on The Voice. That ongoing bromance/feud with Adam Levine? People love it — and they love Shelton's relationship with Gwen Stefani, too.

It's rare that Blake Shelton is not in the public eye.

If Shelton is dubbed Sexiest Man Alive, he'll join the ranks with his fellow The Voice coach, Levine. Previous winners include Dwayne Johnson and Channing Tatum. The face of 2017 will be revealed later this week.

Shelton charmed his way to winning Top Country Artist at the Billboard Music Awards in May, as well as became the first country artist ever to win the all-genre Favorite Album category at the People’s Choice Awards, along with the title for Favorite Male Country Artist.
