SINGLE REVIEW: Blake Shelton “Neon Light”

The beat, the banjo, the bye-bye … leave it to Blake Shelton to find a neon light at the end of the tunnel.

“There’s a neon light at the end of the tunnel

It ain’t all that bright, but even though it’s subtle

It’s got me feeling alright, gonna make it a double

There’s a neon light at the end of the tunnel”

Could “Neon Light“, the first song off his 11th studio album, Bring Back the Sunshine, become his 13th consecutive #1 country single?

“The song, the melody, the chorus is so George Jones or George Strait. It really is. … We do include elements in our music today that sonically make them different. But the heart of country music is still alive, and still there.”

Yes, Blake, it is.

“I got down on my knees and I pray, pray, pray

For a sign, sign, sign

Now there it is in the window, it’s about time, damn time”

Even the lyrics have Blake praying his streak continues … oh, wait, they’re probably meant to help him get over his ex.

“I take a shot of I don’t care what you’re doing now

Chase that one with a cold screw you

When that’s done I just might wash it down with a big pitcher of someone new

That blonde, blonde, blonde at the bar, bar, bar

See if she wants to try and unbreak my heart, heart, heart”

Think he has successfully gotten over his ex here.

The single impacts radio August 25th. The Warner Bros Records/Warner Music Nashville album, produced by Scott Hendricks, will be released September 30.

I’ve been privileged to write album reviews for Got Country Online since 2012. John Berry,John Michael Montgomery, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Alan Jackson their music caught my ear, their lyrics caught my heart. Country music is my go-to, whether my day is great or not. I love to crank up old and new tunes, kick back and enjoy!
