Looks like Blake Shelton's dad is going to pull through after being hospitalized, which had the country singer so emotional during the American Country Awards Monday night (Dec. 5).
You might remember Blake referred to his dad, Dick Shelton, after accepting an ACA trophy, saying, "He's been having a pretty rough couple of weeks, and I know he's watching tonight. I love you, Dad, and I dedicate this to you, man." Blake also got a little choked up during his performance of "God Gave Me You" later in the show.
Turns out Blake's dad had gone into the hospital that night with pneumonia, and Blake flew home to Oklahoma right after the show to be with the family.
