Blake Shelton's latest hit, “Turnin' Me On,” was not surprisingly inspired by his lady love, girlfriend Gwen Stefani. Blake had the idea for the song, but he tells us he called in reinforcements in the songwriting world to help him complete the tune. “I’m sitting on my bus one day earlier in 2017 and I think I was in Baton Rouge, and I was up there alone. I had my guitar. I started playing a little melody that I was hearing in my head, and next thing you know I started writing a song. I wrote a verse, and then I wrote a chorus, and then I realized it was going somewhere and I felt good about it. Like I always do in the last couple of years I called up my friend Jessi Alexander and said I think I’m on to something and I need somebody way better than me to try to bring this thing home, and so she and I and Josh Osborne ended up writing this song. I’m super proud of it, and not hard to figure out who this song is about.”
“Turnin' Me On” is the latest from Blake's latest album, Texoma Shore.
He returns to the set of NBC's The Voice for it's new season which premieres on September 24th at 8 p.m. ET.
