I was able to see Blake Shelton perform live last night at a Super Bowl party in NYC. He pulled up a chair and sat down and played and sang solidly for over an hour.
I know that people truly love him and his music. He is a very personable guy and has a great voice and really can connect with an audience. I was amazed at the people around me who knew every word of every single song. It was funny because since the concert was in NYC, Blake Shelton asked, “Do we have any rednecks or hillbillies in the crowd?” There was a large roar from the audience. He said, “so … this isn’t a typical New York show.” It is funny how there is this very regional idea of music tastes that is very real, but not necessarily exclusive. I am sure there are plenty of people in NYC who like country music, but it is obviously not the norm, and the fact that the Super Bowl brought in so many people from all over the country made the mix different from the norm.
Anyway, as I have said before, I am not a huge country music fan, so I only knew a few of his songs. So, nerd that I am, I prepped for the show. 🙂 I put Blake Shelton on Spotify for a couple of days, so that I was familiar with all his music. Besides the normal ones that I am sure everyone already knows … because I knew them (“God Gave Me You,” “Honey Bee,” and “Drink On It“), I found another one that I really liked and so I have decided to share that one today. He played it last night and it is just a great song. All the men out there need to listen to the words! 🙂
