The current king of country Blake Shelton has announced that “Turnin’ Me On” is the latest single from his 2017 album, Texoma Shore.
It’s a chilled-out, loved-up ode to his pop star girlfriend Gwen Stefani. “I was [on my bus] alone, and I had my guitar, started playing a little melody that I was hearing in my head,” Shelton recently said of the song’s roots. “Next thing you know, I started writing a song… I’m super proud of it—and it’s not hard to figure out who this song is about.”
Kicking off with a classic, laid-back guitar strum inspired by Fleetwood Mac and The Eagles, the track hears Shelton crooning the reasons why he can’t get his lady love out of his head. “Her kisses taste like whiskey / Burnin’ through my veins / She don’t know how to miss me / She hits right where she aims,” he sings on the track’s opening verse before the chorus kicks in.
