Hell Right – Blake Shelton Featuring Trace Adkins | “God’s Country” that hit #1 on the Hot Country Songs chart and #17 on the Billboard Hot 100, there was a lot of hype over Blake’s new release.

"I still think that Trace Adkins he’s one of the most underrated country artists out there, so I called him and asked if he would be on the record with me and he said something that was close to ‘hell right,’ but it was a different cuss word.”

“Hell Right” was written by David Garcia, Brett Tyler, and Michael Hardy who also co-wrote Shelton previous single God’s Country“. The song was written on May 29, 2019, a few months after “God’s Country” was recorded. Shelton heard the song, and recorded and released it within a month and a half. According to Shelton, the song is about “taking things to the max,” and that “you can raise hell or you can raise hell right”

 

 

I think [“Hell Right,” as compared to “God’s Country”] is still Blake, but, you know, Blake, and a lot of very developed artists, have shades of themselves, and I think this is just that storyteller, “Boys ‘Round Here,” clever, a little more tongue-in-cheek, a little less serious [side] … I think this is kind of just getting back to the “Hillbilly Bone,” “Boys ‘Round Here,” just tongue-in-cheek, kind of cool thing. And he makes it so believable.

“This song is about taking things to the max,” Shelton said of “Hell Right” in a statement. “You can raise hell or you can raise hell right. It’s about cutting loose and having fun the right way. I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles these days, but when I hear songs like this on the radio, I am immediately thinking about being back home and what I’d be doing if I was there.”

 

 

“Everything is icing on the cake for me at this point,” Shelton says, “and all I want to do is make the records that I want to make with the people I want to make ’em with. Outside of that I don’t care how they (his record label Warner Music Nashville) package them or what they do with it.”

Starting with the crickets chirping at the beginning, this is country all the way. Trace adds his amazing low voice to the track, with Blake taking the reigns throughout the song. It’s a great slow party jam that I can just picture Blake rocking out to at his concerts or on The Voice stage. The single is right on par with what we’ve come to expect from Blake Shelton.

 

 

 

Hell Right – Blake Shelton Featuring Trace Adkins

[Intro: Trace Adkins & Blake Shelton]
Hey
Yeah?
Tell ’em that story you were tellin’ me

[Verse 1: Blake Shelton]
Couple boys clock out about 5:35
Tryna put a little hammer in their head
Standin’ in the liquor store, starin’ at a fifth
But they picked up a handle instead

[Refrain: Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins]
Hell right (Hell right?)
Hell right (Okay)

[Verse 2: Blake Shelton, Trace Adkins, Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins]
Couple girls with their boots on got their Bluetooth on
T-shirts sayin’ “Go Sooners”
Then the girl from the small town took off the “Old Town”
Put on a little Hank Jr. (Thank God)
Hell right
She got all her rowdy friends comin’ over tonight

[Chorus: Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins]
Hell right (Hell right)
Hell right (Hell right)
Everybody’s throwin’ down on a Friday night
Somewhere in America
There’s a bottle to burn and a fire to light
And you ain’t done nothin’ if you did it half way
If you gonna raise hell, then you better damn raise
Hell right (Hell right)
Hell right (Hell right)
Hell right

[Verse 3: Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins]
There’s a guitar on the ground that was makin’ some sound
‘Til somebody pulled a hillbilly slip
Now there’s fog on the window, she never woulda kissed him
If he didn’t play a lick like this

[Refrain: Trace Adkins]
Hell right
Hell right

[Chorus: Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins]
Hell right (Hell right)
Hell right (Hell right)
Everybody’s throwin’ down on a Friday night
Somewhere in America
There’s a bottle to burn and a fire to light
And you ain’t done nothin’ if you did it half way
If you gonna raise hell, then you better damn raise
Hell right (Hell right)
Hell right (Hell right)
Hell right

[Bridge: Blake Shelton, Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins]
Now it’s 7 a.m
Damn if there ain’t an empty handle on a square hay bale
Everybody’s passed out drunk, but when they wake up
They’re all gonna hurt like hell right
Yeah, boy

[Chorus: Blake Shelton & Trace Adkins]
Hell right (Hell right)
Hell right (Hell right)
Everybody’s throwin’ down on a Friday night
Somewhere in America
There’s a bottle to burn and a fire to light
And you ain’t done nothin’ if you did it half way
If you gonna raise hell, then you better damn raise
Hell right
Hell right
Hell right
