On Friday (August 19), Blake Shelton released a new song called “No Body,” and it’s giving some ’90s country vibes, taking you a trip down memory lane.
“This song in particular takes me back to the ’90s when I was in high school and first moved to Nashville because it feels like what the music sounded like at that time,” the country superstar said.
Written by Rodney Clawson, Chris Tompkins, and Josh Kear, the nostalgic tune finds Shelton singing about not wanting to be with anybody but the person he’s with. But what’s even more interesting is that its narrative draws from a spout of wistful memories, such as “Conway [Twitty] on the radio” and references to Brooks & Dunn’s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.”
Blake Shelton Giving Us Some Fun Throwback
“No Body” was released with a music video that’s totally pulled straight out of the ’90s, as well.
Not only did Blake Shelton bring back one of his most iconic hairstyles – the very same mullet he used to wear when he had just started making a name for himself – but he traveled back in time when country bars were filled with line dancing.
Directed by Adam Roghtlein, the three and half minute short clip was filmed in a country music bar in Los Angeles and kicked off with some throwback magic. Fans were immediately taken to the days of ’90s country-western charm the moment the door to the old-timey bar opened. Neon signs were glowing at the center stage where Shelton stood out, sporting his longer hairstyle and cowboy, stealing our hearts with that wink. Meanwhile, line dancers are boot-scooting on the dance floor.
It ended with Shelton flirting with a gorgeous curly redhead until a watermelon melon out of nowhere hit him in the face.
