OFFSTAGE: Blake Shelton Lets Fans Brag

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

For somebody who tweets as often as Blake Shelton does, he sure isn’t saying much about his great new single “Sure Be Cool if You Did.” You’d think he’d be all over social media telling his nearly 2.5 million followers to go download it or else. But so far, all he’s done is respond to a few fans who love it.

When one told him she was in love with the new song, he replied with, “Well I hate to brag… But you can!!” And when another follower sang the song’s praises, Shelton said, “You already heard it?!! Yeeeee Haww!!”

You can hear the slow groove of a falling-in-love song on Shelton’s site , on a few country radio stations and/or you can buy it on iTunes. And be sure and tweet Shelton your thoughts on the tune, and see if he tweets you back.
