When Thompson Square sings their hit "Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not?" it's likely they aren't speaking directly to Blake Shelton
– but that didn't stop The Voice judge
from planting a smooch on Keifer Thompson Monday at the American Country Awards
at Las Vegas's MGM Grand.
"He kissed me on the mouth earlier. He's got really nice lips," Thompson
said, his wife Shawna by his side, clearly not minding that her husband was kissing someone other than her. "[Shelton's lips] are very soft."
One question, though: How does Shelton maintain those smackers of his?
"I think he uses a lot of lip balm," Thompson said, "strawberry, I think."
