Blake Shelton Films ‘Footloose’ Video
Blake Shelton spent last night working on the music video for his cover of the song 'Footloose,' and according to his recent tweets, he doesn't care if you like it or not. Shelton teased fans with the location last night, but ultimately only shared that it was in a misty, small town in Tennessee.
"What town you ask?.... Hmmm... You figure it out.. But buses are rolling into town as we tweet..." he said on his Twitter page Wednesday night. That was the third of three tweets about the song. Earlier he wrote, "Well either way it was SO fun to sing it. Doing the video tomorrow!! Oh, and to the haters.. How 'bout a nice warm cup full of suck it?"
Apparently Shelton spent the better part of Tuesday night reading reviews of his version of the classic Kenny Loggins song. "Ha! Can't sleep so I'm reading comments and reviews on my version of "Footloose"... Man its so polarizing... LOVE IT!! HATE IT!!" he posted to Twitter.
Shelton's version stays true to the original. The song will be featured on the soundtrack in the remake of the 1984 movie starring Kevin Bacon when it opens nationwide on October 14. The new version stars Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough.
The 'God Gave Me You' singer offered no further details about when the video will premiere or if shooting would last more than one night. He's sure to be done by Friday, however, as his tour with Brad Paisley continues with a show in Tampa, Fla.
