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”
“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.
