  • Here, Blake Shelton looks back on memories from younger years, as he recalls the virtues of yesterday.

    Mama poured grease in a Chrisco can
    Put a hundred thousand miles on a Sears box fan
    Uncle Joe put tobacco on my hand where
    Them yellow jackets torn me up
    And I ain't making this up


    Shelton called this Ashley Gorley, Ben Hayslip, Rhett Akins and Ross Copperman-penned track "one of the greatest songs I've ever had a chance to record."

    "It's hard to listen to this song without relating to it and having it take you back in time," he added, "and it's hard not to fall in love with this song."
