Ones That Got Away: Michael Ray's limited edition Pumas sell out

ABC/Randy HolmesIf you didn’t get a pair of Michael Ray‘s Limited-Edition Puma Classic Suede sneakers, the bad news is they’re all sold out. The good news is, Michael managed to raise a lot of money for his animal charity, Wrigley Cares, in the process.

Michael named his mission after his rescue dog, Wrigley, that he adopted last summer in Chicago. Since then, fans have been bringing dog toys, food and donations to the Florida native’s shows, which he, in turn, gives to local shelters. He designed the shoes as a partnership with Zappos, with all proceeds going to North Shore Animal League America.

“One of the best things about the country music community is the fact that we are a community,” Michael observes. “When you ask fans for their help, they always show up. I never dreamed that Wrigley Cares could turn into what it’s become, and I owe it all to my fans.”

Monday night, Michael made his late-night-TV debut, performing his new single, “One That Got Away,” on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!. You can check out his performance on YouTube.

Blake Shelton reveals he wrote his new single, "Turnin' Me On," about girlfriend Gwen Stefani

No Comments

ABC/Mark LevineBlake Shelton‘s new single, “Turnin’ Me On,” has the distinction of being the only song on hisTexoma Shore album that he had a hand in writing.

The Oklahoma native was on the road in Louisiana when inspiration struck.

“I’m sitting on my bus one day earlier in 2017,” Blake explains, “and I think I was in Baton Rouge, and I was up there alone. I had my guitar. I started playing a little melody that I was hearing in my head, and next thing you know I started writing a song.”

“I wrote a verse,” he goes on, “and then I wrote a chorus, and then I realized it was going somewhere and I felt good about it.”

That’s when the “I Lived It” hitmaker decided it was time to call in the big guns.

“Like I always do in the last couple of years,” Blake says, “I called up my friend Jessi Alexanderand said, ‘I think I’m on to something and I need somebody way better than me to try to bring this thing home.’ And so she and I and Josh Osborne ended up writing this song.”

Jessi wrote Blake’s number ones “Drink on It” and “Mine Would Be You,” while Josh contributed the track “My Eyes” to his Based on a True Story… album.

“I’m super proud of it,” Blake says of “Turnin’ Me On,” “and [it’s] not hard to figure out who this song is about,” he teases. That person, of course, is his girlfriend, Gwen Stefani.
