Blake Shelton: Next Steps
Blake Shelton knows how to deliver a punchline. On "She's Got a Way with Words," the charming country singer plays it straight, crooning winking lines like "She put a big F.U. in my future," as if he's too heartbroken to even notice the pun. Meanwhile, on "Ol' Red,” Shelton artfully conceals the prison-escape song's big twist until the very last line, which he then mutters with only the slightest smirk.
