It’s hard to believe that he’s the same guy who released songs like “Austin,” and “Ol’ Red” when he first burst onto the country music scene, but the guy has pretty much been on cruise control with his career since 2010, minus a couple of half decent songs here and there.
I mean c’mon, his last album was titled Body Language…
I feel like I already disliked the album before I even heard a single song, strictly based off the album title.
However, it appears the man is ready to rejuvenate his career, as he’s finally found a song that makes him feel like a teenager again, saying:
“I get excited and feel like a kid every time we release new music. But this song in particular takes me back to the ’90s when I was in high school and first moved to Nashville, because it feels like what the music sounded like at that time.”
Could it be? Does Blake Shelton, who has clung to mediocre pop country for the past decade, have a ’90s style country song coming our way this Friday?
Well, it’s titled “No Body,” so I’m not gonna get my hopes up.
I’m just trying to figure out this “body” obsession Shelton has had for the past year or so.
The song is written by Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, and Josh Kear, and it’s about a guy who wants to be with “No Body” but his girl.
Yeah, I’m starting to dislike this song more and more already.
Nevertheless, Shelton swears by it:
“The hook confused me the first time I heard it – I’m hoping it’s the same way for everyone else so they have to listen to it a bunch of times to figure it out!”
