Blake Shelton co-wrote one song on his upcoming new album, Texoma Shore, “Turnin’ Me On.”
“Turnin’ Me On” features a subtle reference to Shelton’s girlfriend, Gwen Stefani. The song was written by Shelton, Jessi Alexander and Josh Osborne, and includes the lyric “She’s Revlon red in the blackest night,” a reference to Stefani’s work with the Revlon cosmetics brand (and her penchant for red lip color). In a press release, Shelton explains that he began writing “Turnin’ Me On” earlier this year, during some downtime on his tour bus. He brought Alexander and Osborne in to help him finesse the idea.
Unfortunately, Nashville isn’t immune to its own sexual assault scandals. A publicist named Kirt Webster has been accused of molesting four people, including a former country performer who believes he was drugged and raped. Webster issued a statement saying he plans to “combat the untrue allegations.”
