There’s “Nobody But You” for country music superstar Blake Shelton – at least when it comes to the duet partner on his latest single, available now (listen HERE). Shelton teamed up with Gwen Stefani for the “soaring power ballad” (Rolling Stone) written by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James. It is one of four new tracks on Shelton’s recently released Fully Loaded: God’s Country album, which hit No. 1 on both the Top Country Albums and Country Album Sales charts and went Top 10 on the all-genre Billboard 200.
“I was at The Voice compound and Shane McAnally is on Songland, so they were there doing some cross-promotion. Shane came to my trailer and said, ‘Man, I got a song for you,’” Shelton said. “I knew he had Gwen’s number from a write, so I told him to send it to her as I was being called to set. I actually got the song twice because my producer Scott Hendricks emailed it to me right after. Then one day I was driving with Gwen and I said, “Hey let’s listen to that song from Shane, because Scott sent it to me too – it must be pretty incredible.” When I heard it, I was just floored. I realized how important that song was for me and where I am in my life right now. I just think it’s magical. I literally think it’s important of a song as I’ve ever recorded.”
