Watch Blake Shelton’s Fearless Performance of “God’s Country” on “The Voice”

Blake Shelton took a break from his coaching duties on The Voice on May 14 to perform a fiery rendition of his new single, “God’s Country.” The gritty performance elicited a standing ovation from his fellow judges Adam Levine, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend.

The new tune is the first sample of music from Blake’s upcoming 12th studio album. Penned by Michael Hardy, Jordan Schmidt and Devin Dawson, “God’s Country” follows Blake’s previous Top 10 single, “Turnin’ Me On,” which was featured on his 2017 album, Texoma Shore.

“‘God’s Country’ is a song that has a strong and deep meaningful lyric, but at the same time it leaves it up to the listeners interpretation,” Blake said. “But no matter where you are from or where you’re standing it is my belief that you’re standing in God’s Country. It’s really about a state of mind. Wherever you’re from and how you feel about that place. For me it’s about being from Oklahoma—where I was born, raised and still live today.”
