Is there a more appropriate way to enjoy the Academy of Country Music Awards than with co-host and three-time nominee beverage of choice? The Entertainer of the Year contender isn’t shy about his preference for all things stronger than water, as he demonstrated when he told Kathie Lee and Hoda, “I’m excited because y’all have alcohol on this show.” So in the spirit of his love for spirits, take a swig of your beverage of choice whenever he drops a favorite key word. (And if this show’s anything like last year’s, he will.)
Yes, the country singer doesn’t keep his affinity for, um, aperitifs bottled up, so many of Shelton’s Tweets come with a chaser. Whether he’s celebrating a day off from work or an intense workout, any and all occasions call for a toast. Whenever the co-host drops the word drink, noun or verb form, you know what to do.
Shelton knows all good things must come to end, a sentiment he’s already expressed on Twitter. Since the ACMs are in Las Vegas, we’re already wondering how he’ll be feeling in the morning and how many times he’ll talk about the least favorite side effect of his beloved booze. (Ahem, think of this before you get a bit too carried away with this game.)
After a night of partying, Shelton’s Twitter feed turns into the mass drunk-text you only wish one of your friends sent you in the after-after-hours. Whether he’s pondering the advantages of being a giraffe or, you know, the implication of the word “inbred,” don’t be surprised if things get deep.
Should we be worried about the singer’s wild ways if his liver wants to cut him off? “Yeah, I drink a lot, but I’m not drunk every night,” The Voice coach told Parade in 2011. Plus, wife (and fellow entertainer of the year nominee) doesn’t seem to mind.
