Blake Shelton may still be Ten Times Crazier than the average country artist — as evidenced by the title he’s given his 2014 summer tour — but he’s got a sweet side, too. And it’s on full display in the video for his latest single, “Doin’ What She Likes.”
Written by Wade Kirby and Phil O’Donnell, the song is easily among Shelton’s most romantically charged songs, packed as it is with lyrics that focus on his partner’s wants and needs — from lighting “watermelon candles” and “running fingers through her long hair” to telling her “how good she looks in them blue jeans.”
Then again, while his romantic intentions were good, things don’t quite unfold the way he’d planned them. Watch below:
“Doin’ What She Likes,” which is currently in Top 10 on the country singles charts, is the latest single from Shelton’s 2013 album Based on a True Story…, which has been nominated for an Academy of Country Music award for Album of the Year. Shelton has been nominated for a total of five ACMs this year, including Entertainer of the Year. In addition, he’s again returning to cohost the show with Luke Bryan.
The 49th ACM Awards air Sunday, April 6 on CBS.
