Blake Shelton Releases ‘Bringing Back the Sunshine’ Video
Want to go on a road trip with Blake Shelton in his hometown of Ada, Okla.? Well, here's your chance -- sort of. The singer has released the video for the title track of his latest album, 'Bringing Back the Sunshine,' and it's a picturesque road trip through the small town.
Shelton never actually makes an appearance in the video; almost all of the footage is shot through a windshield, as if the viewer was sitting in the passenger seat. It's fitting that several landmarks in the town, including the water tower that also appears on the cover of the album, are included in the video, since he returned to his roots for the new set of tunes.
“The whole album is searching for parts of me that I think have … not gotten lost along the way, but stuff that I haven’t addressed in my music as much as I used to, whether it’s drinking songs, heartbreak songs or songs about how people treat you," he explains. "Things like that."
It seems like the town of Ada and Shelton share a mutual affection for each other. The town recently renamed a street Blake Shelton Boulevard in his honor.
In addition to returning for Season 7 of 'The Voice,' Shelton also has a few more shows on his Ten Times Crazier Tour this week, in Nevada and California. Keep track of his busy schedule here.
