Shelton is "Happy Anywhere" with Stefani
Monday, July 20, 2020
– Blake Shelton will be "Happy Anywhere," his new single with girlfriend Gwen Stefani, which is out on Friday.
The feel-good tune was written by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins. "Happy Anywhere" will impact country radio immediately. The song will make its TV debut on release day during the 8 a.m. hour of Shelton's appearance on the TODAY Summer 2020 Citi Music Series (NBC).
"Even though Gwen and I just had a single out we decided that, under the circumstances, this year... man, there's never been a better time for 'Happy Anywhere,'" Shelton said. "We've all been in quarantine and lockdown, and hopefully we've been doing that with somebody that we really love and enjoy being around. That's what happened with Gwen and me this summer - and this entire year."
"Happy Anywhere" follows Shelton and Stefani's Platinum-selling, multi-week chart-topper "Nobody But You." The duet was on his "Fully Loaded: God's Country album."
Shelton recently announced that he will partner with Encore Drive-In Nights to host a one-night-only concert event on July 25. The experience will include interviews with and all-new performances from the entertainer as well as special guests Stefani and Trace Adkins.
"This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe," Shelton said. "I'm excited we're getting the chance to perform a concert for fans, and we're going to go back and play old hits like 'Austin,' newer songs like 'God's Country' and we might even introduce something brand new. So fill up those popcorn tubs and get ready for some country music."

Blake Shelton's 11th studio album finds The Voice advisor in a contented, one might even say homey, frame of mind. The opening track and first single "I'll Name the Dogs" sets the tone. It's a rollicking ode to domesticity that manages to make household chore distribution ("You find the spot and I'll find the money / You be the pretty and I'll be the funny") both romantic and amusing.

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.
