Doing It to Country Songs

Album: If I'm Honest (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This lighthearted single-entendre song finds Blake Shelton singing about how country is the ideal music to accompany many activities ranging from drinking strong coffee to shooting pool.
  • Shelton is joined by The Oak Ridge Boys on this track. The country vocal quartet is best known for their early 1980s hits "Elvira" and "Bobbie Sue."
  • Their collaboration made for great fun in the studio. "They are so sweet and so professional and they work so hard," Shelton revealed. "We finally had to go like, 'Guys, it's good, it's good enough! I mean, you can't get it better!' until finally it's like, 'Man, I'm tired! You guys nailed it on the second take anyway.' But they were having so much fun and they just wanted it to be as good as it can be, and this is one of the most special moments of my career to be able to have a duet with the Oak Ridge Boys."
