Blake Shelton and Trace Adkins have done it again! The longtime friends’ new collaboration, “Hell Right,” is here and it’s just as rambunctious as fans imagined it would be.

The song, which was co-written by David Garcia, Brett Tyler and Michael Hardy, is like “Hillbilly Bone” meets “Boys ‘Round Here” and it’s sure to be a hit among Shelton’s fanbase.

“Hell right / Hell right / Everybody’s throwing down on a Friday night / Somewhere in America / There’s a bottle to burn and a fire to light / You ain’t done nothin’ if you did it halfway / If you’re gonna raise hell, then you better damn raise hell right / Hell right / Hell right,” they sing throughout the chorus.

“This song is about taking things to the max,” Shelton shared in a press release. “You can raise hell or you can raise hell right. It’s about cutting loose and having fun the right way. I spend a lot of time in Los Angeles these days, but when I hear songs like this on the radio, I am immediately thinking about being back home and what I’d be doing if I was there. The first time I heard ‘God’s Country’ I was on my ranch in Oklahoma. As a guy who actually lives this lifestyle, ‘Hell Right’ hits me in the soul now just as much as ‘God’s Country’ did then.”

Fans can listen to the brand new song above.

“Hell Right” comes on the heels of Shelton’s two-week No.1, “God’s Country.”
