Blake Shelton wants to share his new album, Texoma Shore, with all the “country freaks” out here on The Highway (Ch. 56). In celebration of 11th full-length release, he is taking over the channel for the weekend.

Starting Friday, November 10th at 7 pm ET through Sunday, November 12th at 11 pm ET, The Highway will play a song from Texoma Shore at the top of every hour.

Additionally, The Highway will air a special live performance featuring songs from the new album as well as other old favorites, which were recorded during an exclusive concert for nearly 400 SiriusXM listeners at The Cutting Room in New York.

Among the songs performed was ‘Turning Me On’, a new song on the album, which was inspired by his girlfriend Gwen Stefani.

Introducing the song on stage, he said he wrote it while killing time on his tour bus. He initially thought the riff he conjured up must have been something he heard from someone else but was happy to discover it was original.

“So I ended up writing up this chorus,” he said. “My girlfriend wasn’t out there with me so I was thinking about her, and I ended up writing this song and it won’t be hard for you to figure out who it’s about.”

Hear the 11-song set:
Friday, November 10th at 9 pm ET
Monday, November 13th at 12 pm ET
Tuesday, November 14th at 8 pm ET
Thursday, November 16th at 12 am ET
