Our song spotlight this week focuses on a tune by a superstar who’s on top of the world right now. Whether it’s making people smile as a judge on “The Voice,” putting on killer shows while out on tour, hanging out with his beautiful wife, Miranda, or driving #1 hit after #1 hit up our countdown… it’s hard to imagine that things could get any better for Blake Shelton.
Blake’s latest tune, titled “Lonely Tonight” is the handiwork of songwriters Brent Anderson and Ryan Hurd, and features the vocal talents of Ashley Monroe from “The Pistol Annies.” It’s the second single out of his album, “Bringing Back The Sunshine,” and Blake maintains it’s the toughest vocal out of the album. He says, “That song is just so range-y, and on top of that, I knew Ashley was going to come in and sing on it, and I knew that people were gonna hear her singing in a way they’d never heard her sing before.” Well, Blake’s accolades are certainly not misplaced, and between the two of them, we believe they’ve got a song that could easily make quick work of the countdown. Haven’t heard it yet? No worries, you can check it out right here, right now at CT40.com. Simply find the tune under the “Hear” category… click, and enjoy!
