Blake Shelton dropped his new album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country, on Dec. 13.
The 12-song offering features five new tunes—including “God’s Country” and current single, “Hell Right”—with seven previously recorded hits, including “Came Here to Forget” and “I Lived It.” The upcoming album aligns titularly with past compilations, Loaded (2010) and Reloaded (2015).
One of the album’s new tracks, “Nobody But You,” is a duet with girlfriend Gwen Stefani. The new tune was penned by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James.
“This was one of those songs where the more I heard it, the more I fell in love with it,” Blake says. “I also realized how important it is for me and where I am in my life, and I think that’s why Shane [McAnally] was trying to get it to me. It fits my story. I was about to go in and record when I decided that it needed Gwen on it—because it is our song. I think it’s magic.”
