It’s been almost two years since this beloved country singer released his last full-length album, Texoma Shore, and you can bet your bottom dollar, fans have been begging him for more!
Blake Shelton, a world-renowned country music superstar, (and beloved Voice coach) released just three singles from his last album – but now, it appears he’s already done with a new one.
Shelton, who’s currently smack-dab in the middle of The Voice‘s 16th season, also has announced a brand new one-day-only show with none other than The King of Country – George Strait.
For this history-making show, the two are headed to Boston with fellow country singer and Texas country star Cody Johnson. It’ll be an epic show, for sure, but it looks like Blake might be singing some new jams for folks there, too…

Today, Blake Shelton decided to tease fans with a preview of his sure-to-be-amazing single “God’s Country” – a new song that’s due out on March 29th, 2019.
The single opens with a deep chord and is quickly followed by the twangy plucking of a guitar over a heavy bass sound.
“‘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 of the song in a statement.
“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.”
The new song was co-written by Shelton’s fellow country singer from his same label, Devin Dawson, and has been called “electrifying” – similarly, it is said to be a song about reminding us all where our roots are.
