Warner Music Nashville superstar Blake Shelton is sharing his latest song and official music video. “No Body” is out today and is hitting all the notes and dance steps Shelton intended (LISTEN HERE). The song is “soaked in ‘90s country vibes,” according to Billboard, while Taste of Country said, “Not only is the song’s production a hat-tip to the ‘90s country sound, but its narrative pulls from a wellspring of nostalgic memories, including hearing ‘Conway (Twitty) on the radio’ and its ‘scoot the boots’ lyric.”
It's the love of country music that brought the Grand Ole Opry member to Nashville as a teenager, back in the ‘90s. “All I ever considered myself was a country singer,” he recently told Entertainment Tonight. “I love country music and that’s on my horizon – from a career standpoint – just keeping that thing going and having songs on the radio and being able to go out and tour and play. That’s what I do. I am a country singer.”
To complete the retro sound of the song, Shelton travels back in time to a country bar filled with line-dancing patrons wearing classic wardrobe from the age. Shelton dons a mullet for the video that ET calls “joyful.” Catch the music video, directed by Adam Rothlein, HERE.
Shelton, who is celebrating his 12th year as a Grand Ole Opry member, will return to the hallowed stage on Saturday, Sept. 10 for performances in both the early and late shows. He will no doubt perform his new single as well as several of his 28 No. 1 hits.
