Blake Shelton isn’t one to back down from a challenge, which is why it took him so long to record his ballad, “I’m Sorry“.
The country singer had this song in his back pocket for a while. He held on to the song for so long because he was too intimidated to record it.
“The only reason I haven’t cut it, is because out of fear of whether I can actually perform that vocal or not. I mean, it’s a tough song to sing.”
Once he finally gained the courage to record this song, he did an amazing job. Pulling at our heartstrings at all the right moments, Shelton belts the high notes beautifully and amazes with vocals like you’ve never heard him sing before.
With lyrics like “You say you never meant to hurt me / Well that might be true / But do you really think I should forgive you / For what you put me through,” the song is relatable to anyone who has had their heart broken, which is most of us.
Here’s an inside and behind-the-scenes look of Shelton recording “I’m Sorry“.
Not only is Shelton relatable on this track, he is completely vulnerable and lets you into a world you never thought you’d see.
