Country music entertainer Blake Shelton isn’t shy when it comes to giving credit where credit is due. Earlier this week, the star posted a Facebook video message thanking Nashville songwriters for their contributions to his red hot music career.
“I never really considered myself a great songwriter, and the reason is because there’s so many incredible songwriters in Nashville that I can’t even begin to compare my songs to the work that they put out and the brilliant songs that these writers in Nashville come up with time and time and time again,” Blake expressed. “And I wouldn’t be sitting here with a career right now if it wasn’t for the songwriters in Nashville and the publishers who took a chance on me, especially as a young artist.”

“I’ve got one song on there that I wrote, and the rest are all from other writers in Nashville because I’m always hearing something that blows me away,” he confessed about his forthcoming album. “I love being a songwriter, but I am more excited about making a great album. I’m gonna be honest with myself, and the only way to do that is to lean on the incredibly talented writers in Nashville.”
Besides thanking Nashville’s creative community, Blake also recently extended his gratitude towards his loyal fan base.
As announced early last week, the artist’s Blake Shelton (Live) EP will be available to stream on Friday, August 25th. The six-song project features some of his most popular chart-topping hits, including “Honey Bee,” “Boys ‘Round Here” and, from his most recent album If I’m Honest, “A Guy With A Girl.”
