Blake Shelton’s “Happy Anywhere” Debuts in Top 20: “Thanks for Letting Me Do What I Love the Most—Sing Country Music”

Blake Shelton’s new single, “Happy Anywhere,” featuring Gwen Stefani, debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart. Penned by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins, “Happy Anywhere” also skyrocketed to No. 1 on the iTunes all-genre chart after its release 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.

Directed by Todd Stefani, the feel-good video for the new tune includes footage of Blake and Gwen spending quality time in their homes in Oklahoma and California.

“As I’ve said, ‘Happy Anywhere’ feels like the perfect song for right now,” Blake says. “I’m proud to see that fans feel the same way about it that Gwen and I do. Thanks everyone for listening to the song, watching the video and coming to the drive-in. Most importantly, thanks for letting me do what I love the most—sing country music.”

Blake headlined a one-night-only concert event, which was filmed exclusively for drive-in theaters across North America, on July 25.

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.”
