Blake said, “I was atThe Voice compound and Shane McAnally is onSongland, so they were there doing some cross-promotion. Shane came to my trailer and said, ‘Man, I got a song for you.' I knew he had Gwen’s number from a write, so I told him to send it to her as I was being called to set. I actually got the song twice because my producer Scott Hendricks emailed it to me right after. Then one day I was driving with Gwen and I said, 'Hey let’s listen to that song from Shane, because Scott sent it to me too – it must be pretty incredible.' When I heard it, I was just floored. I realized how important that song was for me and where I am in my life right now. I just think it’s magical. I literally think it’s important of a song as I’ve ever recorded.”
Earlier this week, it was announced that Blake and Gwen will perform the song live on the Grammy Awards,on January 26th and air live on CBS at 8PM.
Blake is also nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for “God’s Country,” which took home Single of the Year honors at the CMA Awards in November.
