Blake Shelton loves his hometown and the United States, so much so that his new cinematic video for “God’s Country” is an ode to the land he loves most.
The clip was filmed in Tishomingo, Oklahoma, where Shelton lives primarily. Weaved with old Dust Bowl-era footage of farmers and tornados, the vignette shows both the rose and the thorn of the land as we see Shelton drive through scenic back roads. “I don’t care what my headstone reads/Or what kind of pine wood box I end up in/When it’s my time lay me six feet deep in/God’s country,” he growls before someone douses a tractor in gasoline and sets it on fire.
“God’s Country” serves as the lead track for his forthcoming studio album. Watch the video below.
