Blake Shelton Announces New Single, “Happy Anywhere,” Featuring Gwen Stefani

Blake Shelton will try to score his 28th No. 1 single with the release of “Happy Anywhere” on July 24.

Like his most recent multi-week No. 1 single, “Nobody But You,” which topped the charts in April/May 2020, “Happy Anywhere” features vocals from girlfriend Gwen Stefani.

Penned by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins, “Happy Anywhere” will impact country radio immediately on July 24.

“Even though Gwen and I just had a single out, we decided that, under the circumstances, this year… man, there’s never been a better time for ‘Happy Anywhere,’” says Blake. “We’ve all been in quarantine and lockdown, and hopefully we’ve been doing that with somebody that we really love and enjoy being around. That’s what happened with Gwen and me this summer—and this entire year.”

The new single will make its TV debut on July 24 during the 8 a.m. hour of Blake’s appearance on the Today Summer Concert Series on NBC.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
