A few days after sharing details about his 2019 Friends and Heroes Tour, Black Shelton has share a cover version of "Tequila Sheila," a top 40 country hit of 1980, from Bobby Bare.

Mac Davis and late Shel Silverstein wrote the song for Bare's Down & Dirty.

The cover opens with an introduction from Bare, after which Shelton launches into the lyrics. "Pour me another Tequila Sheila / Take off that red satin dress," he sings, with the bar crowd chiming along in the background.

"One of the coolest things I've been able to do in my career, because I've been fortunate, is be a little selfish along the way and be able to record some songs that I grew up loving," said Shelton.

Shelton said he has been fortunate to be able to record some songs that he grew up loving and added, "I recorded this song and didn't really have a plan for it — I just wanted to have my own version. I'm a huge fan, and I always felt like Bobby Bare's personality was the kind I wanted to have as an artist, too."

"Blake Shelton is by far one of the biggest stars in country music right now and a great friend to traditional country. I'm glad to know him and thrilled he would include me on this record, it was a lot of fun," said Bobby Bare.
