Reading Between Blake Shelton’s Tweets

New Songs With Co-Writers Range From "Fun" to "Important"

Blake Shelton recently tweeted something other than how badly he needed a drink or how drunk he was or how much firewood he was chopping.

Jessi Alexander is one of Nashville’s most well-loved songwriters, with hits like Shelton’s “Mine Would Be You” and “Drink on It,” Lee Brice’s “I Drive Your Truck” and even Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.”

And whatever she wrote with Shelton this month must be good because they were also writing together back in April. I know this because I remember that he tweeted about that session, too. “Me and my little @JessiLAlexander working on something that’s s*** your pants fun today in Nashville!”

So if they were writing songs that were, well, that much fun back in April, and then four months later are writing songs that are “so important,” I’m anxious to hear what they came up with.

Jon Randall, Alexander’s husband, is also a prolific songwriter, with hits like “Whiskey Lullaby,” “She’s So California” and some of the best tracks on Dierks Bentley‘s bluegrass album Up on the Ridge.

I just know this trio is up to something genius.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
