Blake Shelton is the Sexiest Man Alive…
Thomas Rhett has halftime plans on Thanksgiving…

Yes! Blake Shelton is People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2017. Blake is the only country star to claim the title.
His reaction when he heard the news? “That y’all must be running out of people. Like, wow, we’re down to somebody who is somewhat symmetrical.”
But what Blake is most exiting about - the fact that he can rub it it in fellow Voice coach Adam Levine’s face! Adam held the title in 2013. Adam Levine, David Beckham and now Blake are the only non-actors to hold the honor.

Thomas Rhett will take the field to perform during halftime of the Cowboys-Chargers game on Thanksgiving Day in Dallas.
The halftime performance kicks off the Salvation Army annual Red Kettle Campaign, which helps those in need and provides toys for millions of children at Christmas.
