Blake Shelton Covers Eddie Rabbitt’s “Every Which Way But Loose” in Final Song on Throwback Series [Listen]

After announcing his 2019 Friends & Heroes Tour with the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, Trace Adkins and Lauren Alaina, Blake Shelton decided to cover a trio of classic country songs leading up to the tour in his Friends & Heroes Session.

Blake rolled out covers of Bobby Bare’s “Tequila Shelia” and George Jones’ “The King Is Gone (So Are You)” earlier this month.

In his final cover for the throwback series, Blake croons to Eddie Rabbitt’s “Every Which Way But Loose,” which was recorded in 1978 as the title track to the comedy film starring Clint Eastwood.

“One of the coolest things I’ve been able to do in my career, because I’ve been fortunate, is be a little selfish along the way and be able to record some songs that I grew up loving,” says Blake. “I feel like they have helped shape who I am as an artist and were what inspired me to want to be a country singer.”
