Blake Shelton Beautifully Covers Bob Dylan’s ‘Forever Young’ for ‘Max’ Movie
Blake Shelton's voice often goes under-appreciated, especially if he's singing a fun, fast country hit. But his talent for crooning will find a new platform in movie theaters across the country soon, as the country star is singing Bob Dylan's iconic song "Forever Young" in a new film.
The tall (and hilarious) singer Shelton will lend his voice to a new family adventure film titled Max. Singing "Forever Young" gives the country superstar a chance to have his voice actually shine. The tune acts as the theme song for the movie, and though it's been covered a million times over, Shelton's version offers familiar comfort, including a familiar voice in Gwen Sebastian, with whom he sings often.
The story of Max, played by Josh Wiggins, follows a troubled teen who finds comfort during his troubles in man's best friend. The dog, a Belgian Malinois, is his brother's military dog, but the Marine was killed while on duty in Afghanistan. Since the boy finds such a strong relationship with the dog, the family decides to adopt him.
Boaz Yakin directed Max, and it features a slew of familiar faces, including Robbie Amell (from TV's The Flash), Thomas Haden Church (Sideways), Jay Hernandez (Nashville) and Lauren Graham (Parenthood).
When Shelton isn't lending his Southern drawl to theaters, he's on the road, where you'll find him throughout the summer of 2015. He'll play several festivals, including WE Fest, which he will headline with wife Miranda Lambert.
