After a week of anticipation leading up to Blake Shelton’s new single, the mystery is solved: “Hell Right” is a rap-influenced party song that features Trace Adkins and namechecks both “Old Town Road” and Hank Williams Jr.
“This song is about taking things to the max,” Blake explains. “You can raise hell or you can raise hell right. It’s about cutting loose and having fun the right way.”
“I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles these days,” he continues, “but when I hear songs like this on the radio, I am immediately thinking about being back home and what I’d be doing if I was there.”
The star of The Voice says his new single also has something in common with his most-recent, multi-week number one.
“The first time I heard ‘God’s Country,’ I was on my ranch in Oklahoma,” Blake recalls. “As a guy who actually lives this lifestyle, ‘Hell Right’ hits me in the soul now just as much as ‘God’s Country’ did then.”
“Hell Right” is available to stream or download now.
On Saturday night, Blake plays Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts with George Strait.
