Good news for country fans! Singer-songwriter Blake Shelton announced that his new single “Come Back as a Country Boy” will be out tonight (October 1) at midnight.

The new single, available this Friday, extolls the virtues of living the country lifestyle. “Come Back As A Country Boy” (Michael Hardy, Josh Thompson and Jordan Schmidt) is the first of several new tracks revealed from the deluxe edition of Shelton’s Body Language, due December 3.

“I think this song is an anthem for everyday hardworking country people out there,” Shelton said. “We have so much pride in who we are and what we do that, if we ever died and got the chance to live life over again, we probably wouldn’t do it if we couldn’t be country.”
