Blake Gets the Fire Started
Blake Shelton is set to release his fifth album, Startin’ Fires, featuring the hit single “She Wouldn’t Be Gone,” Tuesday, Nov. 18.
The title comes from one of the cuts on the album, “Good at Starting Fires.” “It actually reminded me of a 2008 version of ‘Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On,’ the old Mel McDaniel song,” says Blake. “I just thought it was a throwback to the music I grew up on.” Another tune, “Bare Skin Rug,” was written by Blake and girlfriend Miranda Lambert. The song was written while they were hanging out around a fire pit at Blake’s house in Oklahoma and recorded around a campfire. Miranda also lends her vocals to the song.
