Blake Shelton’s ‘Wishin’ Boot’ Song From ‘Saturday Night Live’ Now Available on iTunes
'Wishin' Boot,' Blake Shelton's country music parody song from his recent appearance on 'Saturday Night Live,' is now available for download.
Shelton hosted and performed during the episode, which aired on Jan. 24, acting in all but two sketches and playing twice during the show. One of the best skits from the night was a "music video" for the parody song 'Wishin' Boot,' which featured Shelton, Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon singing about a magic cowboy boot while dressed as country superstars Alan Jackson, Wynonna Judd and Reba McEntire, respectively. (See the video here.)
Apparently the tune made quite an impression, as 'Wishin' Boot' is now available via iTunes. The artwork for the track features Shelton, Bryant and McKinnon standing amidst sheer fabric and candles -- a subtle but funny nod to '90s-era album covers.
In addition to his musical performances of 'Neon Light' and 'Boys ‘Round Here,' Shelton also broke out his guitar during the opening monologue, which can be seen here, as well as for fake news story about a 97-year-old widower, which you can watch here. Throughout the night, Shelton also played a dating show contestant, himself on a ‘The Voice’ vs. ‘American Idol’ episode of ‘Family Feud,’ a parole board member and a doubtful magic show audience member.
