Country Weekly magazine has an exclusive preview of the title track from Oklahoma country music star Blake Shelton’s new album “Red River Blue.”
In this Video Spotlight, Shelton chats about the song and what it means to the “southeastern Oklahoma guy” while the ode to lost love plays. See the video after the break, or to hear just the song, click here.
The plaintive ballad about an Oklahoma boy losing his Texas girl features Shelton’s wife, Texas native and fellow Tishomingo resident Miranda Lambert.
“Red River Blue” is due out July 12, and I’ll have a feature on Shelton around that time.
In the meantime, I’ll have a new interview with Lambert this Friday prior to her Independence Day weekend show at Fort Sill on Saturday.
As a bonus, I’m embedding here Shelton’s duet with Brad Paisley of “Don’t Drink the Water” from Tuesday’s live performance episode of the hit reality TV show “The Voice.” If you want to read how Team Blake finalist Dia Frampton fared on tonight’s season finale of “The Voice,” click here to read my live blog of the show, which featured a Dia-Miranda duet.
