Blake Shelton is kind of the man.

This is true as a general statement, but particularly if this anecdote is true. According to reports, one of the contestants on The Voice chose a Chris Brown song to sing.

Blake? Not pleased.

Blake Shelton's acceptance speech after winning Song of the Year honors made his co-winner and wife, Miranda Lambert, cry at the CMA Awards Thursday.

Blake and Miranda co-wrote her song "Over You," and when he reflected on the emotions behind the track, she couldn't hold back the tears on stage:

"I lost my brother in a car wreck when I was 14," said Blake, one of the big CMA Awards winners. "When I decided I wanted to be a country singer, my dad always told me, ‘Son, you should write a song about your brother.’"

Shelton also lost his dad earlier this year, but he was clearly with him last night.

Miranda Lambert didn't exactly love Ashton Kutcher's get-up at this year's Academy of Country Music Awards.

Was Ashton Kutcher making fun of country or is it just me? Watching it back now and I'm kinda wondering? the beloved country star asked about Kutcher presenting an award at the event, while donning a giant cowboy hat and belt buckle.

But whatever tension may have existed between the stars is now gone, as Lambert Tweeted the following photo of herself and the Two and a Half Men star at a pre-Kentucky Derby charity event Saturday night:

"Here it is y'all. He is sweet and lives country music! For real!" Miranda wrote along with the image.

It's nice to see this pair getting along. As for Lambert and Chris Brown? We probably shouldn't hold our breath for a similar type of detente.

Note to future celebrities asked to present at an awards ceremony: do not make fun of the stars and the industry honored at said ceremony.

This may seem like common sense to most, but not to someone who needs to hire a management team to oversee his Tweets. Yes, we're looking at you, Ashton Kutcher.

For some reason, the actor took to the stage at Sunday's Academy of Country Music Awards and handed out the Female Vocalist of the Year trophy to Miranda Lambert… while donning an oversized cowboy hat and painfully singing a few bars of George Strait's "I Cross My Heart."

"Was Ashton Kutcher making fun of country or is it just me? Watching it back now and I'm kinda wondering?" Lambert Tweeted last night in response to Kutcher's shenanigans, while singer Justin Moore didn't have to wonder:

"Seen Ashton kutcher at the acms tonight. What a douche! I don't care for people making a mockery of the way country artists' dress."

Sources also tell Us Weekly that Kutcher was rude backstage and at the afterparty, continuing to wear his silly garb and wandering around with a "with a massive posse." Clearly, no one in that posse has actually watched Two and a Half Men.

Miranda Lambert was an outspoken critic of last Sunday's Chris Brown Grammy lovefest, ripping CBS and the music extravaganza for Brown's prominent role.

She's still not over it, calling out the R&B star in concert this week.

Country star Lambert wondered aloud on Twitter why the convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances during the Grammy Awards.

"Chris Brown twice? I don’t get it. He beat on a girl," Miranda tweeted, adding "He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put back in his place."

"Gunpowder and Lead" is her song about a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband. She performed it in concert Thursday - with a message for Brown.

Before singing, Lambert pulled a poster out of the audience reading "Take Notes Chris Brown." "Get a good picture now, put it on Twitter," she said.

"I’ve been in a world of hurt with Chris Brown fans ... but see, I have to speak my mind because where I come from beating up on a woman is never okay.”

As she sang, Lambert added "So that's why my daddy taught me early on in life how to use a shotgun." The Amherst, Mass., crowd went wild:

Brown has come under heavy criticism for his response to the "haters" as much as for the infamous 2009 incident in what has become a never-ending story.

Should people just get over it and move on? Or is Miranda right in standing up against abusive men, and the Grammys? Choose a side in this feud:

Chris Brown managed to stir up some controversy once again at the 2012 Grammy Awards ... even if all the singer did was show up, perform and win.

Some stars, including Miranda Lambert, wondered why the Best R&B Album winner / convicted felon was featured on not one but two performances.

On Monday, the country superstar tweeted "Chris Brown twice? I don't get it. He beat on a girl ... Not cool that we act like that didn't happen."

  • Miranda Lambert at Grammys

"He needs to listen to Gunpowder and lead and be put in his place. Not at the Grammys." That's a reference to Lambert's 2007 hit "Gunpowder and Lead."

The lyrics to that song describe a woman preparing to kill her abusive husband when he gets out of jail. "His fist is big but my gun's bigger," she sings.

Lambert isn't the only celeb who questioned Brown's Grammy presence. "Chris Brown ... (bites tongue) have we forgiven him?" Michelle Branch asked.

Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet posted, after watching Brown's Grammy performance, "Are Chris Brown's mom and dad CBS and Grammy Brown?"

"Looks like all is forgiven (with) Chris Brown," Sherri Shepherd tweeted. "That's all I'll say." As of right now, Chris has not responded to these Tweets.

"Team Breezy we have come such along way and I'm so appreciative of you guys!!!! No matter what anyone says.... WE MADE IT!!" was all he wrote.

Chris infamously assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammys, an incident some feel should have kept him from this year's show.

Your take: Did the Grammys show Chris too much love?

It didn't get the attention of Kelly Clarkson's national anthem or Madonna's halftime show (both great), but Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton performed a beautiful rendition of "America the Beautiful" at Super Bowl XLVI last night.

The married country stars did justice to the classic, often overshadowed by "The Star Spangled Banner" and "God Bless America," but a wonderful tribute to our nation.

Watch their duet below:

After the Giants pulled off an insane comeback, Blake Shelton ran it back as one of the coaches/judges on NBC's hit singing competition.
