Shelton believes in "God's Country"
Tuesday, March 26, 2019
– Blake Shelton is releasing "God's Country" this Friday, the first song from an upcoming CD.
"'God's Country' is a song that has a strong and deep meaningful lyric, but at the same time it leaves it up to the listeners interpretation," Shelton said. "But no matter where you are from or where you're standing it is my belief that you're standing in God's country. It's really about a state of mind. Wherever you're from and how you feel about that place. For me it's about being from Oklahoma - where I was born, raised and still live today."
"God's Country"was penned by Michael Hardy, Jordan Schmidt and Devin Dawson.
Shelton headlined the "Friends & Heroes 2019" tour, which wrapped this past weekend in Albany, N.Y.. Joined by special guest Lauren Alaina and with special appearances from the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson and Trace Adkins, the first nine shows of the 18-date arena tour sold 103,434 tickets and averaged more than $1 million per night.

The beat switches to hip-hop on "Money," but the sentiment ...
This six-song "Blake Shelton Live EP" seems a little odd. It's not as though Shelton had an especially noteworthy tour to document. Besides, at only six songs long, it's a relatively short document, anyhow. While it may be little more than a post-it note of a project, though, it also packs a powerful punch.
