Blake Shelton Covers Eddie Rabbitt’s ‘Every Which Way But Loose’ [Listen]
Blake Shelton has shared another cover ahead of his Friends and Heroes 2019 Tour, and this time, the singer is trying his hand at "Every Which Way But Loose," originally recorded by country artist Eddie Rabbitt. Readers can press play above to hear Shelton's take on the tune.
The original version of "Every Which Way But Loose," released in 1978, is slower than Shelton's interpretation; however, it does match Shelton's habit of cutting love songs. Shelton sings about his lady love, "While you're turnin' me every which way but loose / You turn me every which way but loose / Inside, the fire's burnin' me / In mind, you just keep turnin' me / Every which way but loose / Baby, there's no excuse / To turn me every which way but loose."
"Every Which Way But Loose" was penned by Steve Dorff, Snuff Garrett and Milton Brown and appears on the soundtrack to a film of the same name. Shelton's "Every Which Way But Loose" follows the release of his other covers: Bobby Bare's "Tequila Sheila" and George Jones' "The King Is Gone (So Are You)."
During the spring of 2019, Shelton will have the Bellamy Brothers, John Anderson, Trace Adkins and Lauren Alaina on the road with him for his Friends and Heroes 2019 Tour. The trek is scheduled to begin on Feb. 14 in Oklahoma City, Okla., and run through March 23, when it will conclude in Albany, N.Y.
