NBC’s ‘The Voice’: Blake Shelton’s new single has connection to show’s past

Blake SheltonThe idea of Blake Shelton putting out some new music is hardly a surprise on its own. The man may very well be the biggest thing going in country music at the moment, and he also is just a matter of weeks still removed from unveiling a Christmas-themed disc on the world. However, who would have thought that he would be turning to a former contestant from his hit show “The Voice” to help out with the writing process?

The artist who we are specifically talking about here is Nicolle Galyon, who was ironically not even a member of Blake’s own team (who he has made a real effort to support in a variety of ways over the past few years). Galyon wrote “Sure Be Cool with You Did” along with the team of Jimmy Robbins and Chris Thompkins, who have worked with a pair of former “American Idol” winners in Carrie Underwood and Scotty McCreery. (She has also worked with a season 2 contestant from Blake’s team in RaeLynn.)

As for this song itself, it does not necessarily reinvent country music in any way, but Blake sings the emotional ballad well. It’s a nice move for the guy to open up an upcoming album by showing off his tender side, especially since this is something that you often forget about when you see him joke around on the show or read his very-colorful Twitter account.

Blake will once again be a part of the NBC singing competition when it returns in March, though this time around he and his pal Adam Levine will be joined by a pair of new coaches in Usher along with Shakira, who are temporarily replacing Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera while they tour and pursue other projects.
