Blake’s CMA Songwriting Trophy Will Be Heavily Guarded

Blake Shelton says he and his wife, Miranda Lambert, will honor and cherish their 2012 CMA Song of the Year trophies—with tripwires.

"It will have its own shelf. It'll have like spotlights on it, and an alarm and everything. Tripwires," Blake told reporters recently.

"There will be landmines if you walk towards it. All that stuff. It's a real big deal to Miranda and I."

OK, Blake was joking—kind of.

He and Miranda do truly cherish the award for the song "Over You," a very personal remembrance of Blake's older brother, who died in a car crash when Blake was a teenager.

"Miranda's a songwriter first. She's said it to me a hundred times. She's a songwriter first," Blake said. "And for me as a songwriter, that is as personal as I can get also."

Look for more on Blake and Miranda's big win in the Nov. 26 issue of Country Weekly, on stands Nov. 19.
