Shelton kicked off the week by premiering the first track “At The House, followed by “I Lived It” and today the singer is releasing “Turnin’ Me On,” just two days before Texoma Shore is available to fans now.
“We’re sitting on my bus one day earlier in 2017 and I think I was in Baton Rouge,” Shelton said of writing the song. “I was up there alone and I had my guitar, started playing a little melody that I was hearing in my head and next thing you know I started writing a song. I wrote a verse, then I wrote a chorus, then I realized it was going somewhere and I felt good about it. Like I always [have] in the last couple of years I called up my friend Jessi Alexander and said, ‘Man, I think I’m onto something and I need somebody way better than me to try to bring this thing home.’ She and I and Josh Osborne ended up writing this song, I’m super proud of it – and it’s not hard to figure out who this song is about.”
“Turnin’ Me On,” written by Shelton, Jessi Alexander and Josh Osborne of the Osborne Brothers, has the 41-year-old singing about his feelings for his girlfriend Gwen Stefani. Well, we know one thing…she’s probably turning him on.
“She’s turnin’ me on, turnin’ me on / Pushin’ my buttons like it ain’t no thing / If I’m what she wants, she gets what she wants / The neon’s buzzin’ when she pulls that string / Turnin’ me on like it’s her job / Sometimes I think she must get off on /Turnin’ me on, turnin’ me on,” Shelton sings in the chorus.
