Blake Shelton’s reflective “Bible Verses” is available everywhere you buy or stream music now.
Known for his larger-than-life personality and his quirky and outlandish sense of humor, Blake Shelton has secured his spot not only in country music as a star but also has won over the hearts of so many throughout his career. With over two decades of hits under his belt, it seems like he has recorded and released songs about everything. Trucks, heartbreak, being a red red red red redneck, and most recently, finding happiness in love.
With his latest release, however, Shelton tackles a different kind of battle, one of self-reflection. “Bible Verses” written by Brett Sheroky, Andrew Peebles, and Joe Fox uses clever wordplay and double meanings to translate a struggle with finding and holding on to your faith. “I keep praying for the day that I can open up that good book and heaven don’t look like it’s out of reach / When it feels like those apostles are giving me the gospel and not the third degree / I just want it to read like Bible verses and not the Bible verses me”
“No matter where you are in your faith, there are times you feel like you just don’t measure up. ‘Bible Verses’ is an honest take on that conflict but, without preaching too much, it’s hopeful that everything will all work out in the end,” Shelton shares in a press release. Proving how personal a spiritual journey can be, this song can be important and healing to anyone struggling with their faith.
28 chart topping singles to his name, he is no stranger to success but by releasing a song like “Bible Verses” it shows his authentic nature, and allows this superstar to suddenly become relatable to his fans and to the rest of the world just hoping to find their path in life.
Fans can pre-order Shelton’s 12th studio album, Body Language here which is slated for release on May 21st.
