Watch Blake Shelton Emerge From The Fiery Embers And “Come Back As A Country Boy” In New Music Video

Blake Shelton just released a music video for his latest single, “Come Back As A Country Boy,” and it’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

The superstar tapped into computer-generated imagery to bring the song to life as he rises out of fire ignited by an asteroid that lands on Earth from outer space.

Rising from the fiery ashes, Shelton is reincarnated with a beer in his hand as he declares, “When I die, I wanna come back as a country boy.”

The video goes on to show the longtime The Voice coach around his Oklahoma property, showcasing his country lifestyle while doing things that country boys do best.

“This video is an adventure,” Shelton said. “But at the end of the day it’s just me, my dog and my truck… and, of course, a beer. It’s me being a country boy in my favorite place on Earth.”

The video made its debut across CMT platforms, including Viacom CBS billboards in New York City’s Times Square, just hours before Shelton is set for the live TV debut of the song at the 55th Annual CMA Awards.

“Come Back As A Country Boy” is Shelton’s latest single and will appear on the forthcoming deluxe version of his Body Language album, due out on December 3.

The song was written by Michael Hardy, Josh Thompson and Jordan Schmidt.

“I think this song is an anthem for everyday hardworking country people out there,” Shelton previously shared in a statement. “We have so much pride in who we are and what we do that, if we ever died and got the chance to live life over again, we probably wouldn’t do it if we couldn’t be country.”

The Oklahoma native moved to Nashville as a teenaged country boy to chase his dream of having a hit song on country radio, which he achieved with his chart-topping debut single, “Austin.”

That same country boy has now enjoyed 36 Top 10 singles – 28 of them No. 1 hits – on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, and has nearly a dozen Gold and Platinum-certified albums to his name. Over the past two decades he has accumulated more than 8.5 billion global on-demand streams, 13 million career album U.S. sales and award wins approaching the hundreds.
