Blake Shelton is flexing his power in Hollywood these days as the star of NBC’s The Voice. He's so influential these days that he got NBC to move The Voice in early November so Blake could make it to the CMA Awards – broadcast on ABC – in Nashville.
Blake said in an interview, "I would like to sit here and tell you it was like John Wayne calling… You ever see a girl cry to get out of a speeding ticket? It was more like that type of begging and pleading and crying." Blake joked that on the phone with NBC’s Bob Greenblatt he had to pull out the charm, "I really got to him and he said, 'Man, I can’t take it. We’ll move the show for you so you can be at your CMA Awards.'" The 47th Annual CMA Awards will air on November 6 on ABC.
