Blake Shelton, ‘All About Tonight’ – Story Behind the Lyrics
Rhett Akins talks to The Boot about Blake Shelton‘s latest single, ‘All About Tonight,’ which he co-wrote along with Ben Hayslip, Dallas Davidson — the same writing trio behind Blake’s ‘Country Strong.’
We decided that we wanted to write a song about how we just don’t care about tomorrow because tomorrow can wait until tomorrow … it’s all about tonight! We just went from there and touched on things like I know I’m going to have a headache in the morning, and I’ll probably be broke. There’s no telling what we’re going to do, and I don’t even care because it’s all about tonight. That’s all I’m worried about! It’s a good, fun party song about where the night is going to go. After we wrote it, we thought it sounds just like a Blake Shelton song. It’s his life!
