Yesterday, friends, family, and industry folks gathered at LP Field to celebrate Blake Shelton‘s latest No.1 success for “Sure Be Cool if You Did” and “Over.”
“Sure Be Cool If You Did” was co-written by Jimmy Robbins, Rodney Clawson, and Chris Tompkins. It was the lead single on Shelton’s current project, Based on a True Story. Keith Urban was also in attendance as the owner of the publishing company who represents Jimmy Robbins.
“Over” was written by Paul Jenkins and David Johnson. It was the fourth single from Shelton’s Red River Blue album. Jenkins and Warner Bros.
“I tell you, man, you do everything. You do everything. Once we make the record, once they write the song, it’s you guys that push it all the way up there. And Keith can tell you this: You almost feel guilty sometimes. Like tonight, I’m going to be out there on the stage, in front of all those people, soaking up all the glory. And I had the easiest part of all in this. It’s all the people on this stage and half the people in this audience that really make this happen. And I love all y’all for it. Thank you.”
Last night at LP Field, Blake was also surprised with a plaque representing a No. 1 album that is close to going platinum.
‘No. 1 album after ten weeks on the charts? Good work my men, I can’t believe this. Let’s all get naked together and do a shot. Wait, let’s just do the shots.”
