Blake Shelton is a big fan of Niall Horan’s latest single “Heaven” and his new video on Instagram proves it!
On Friday afternoon (Feb. 17), Shelton shared a clip of himself lip-syncing along to the just-released Horan track on his tour bus ahead of the opening night of his headlining Back To The Honky Tonk Tour.
“This song gets me in the mood…” Shelton captioned the clip, also tagging Niall Horan and using the hashtag, #Heaven.
In the video, Shelton is seen singing to his personal liquor cabinet, most notably his Smithworks Vodka, which he makes out with at the end of the clip.
“God only knows where this could go / And even if our love starts to grow out of control / And you and me go up in flames / Heaven won’t be the same,” Horan sings on the track, which Shelton mouths the words to.
Horan previously quizzed his fellow The Voice coaches about his new single in several TikTok clips. He began by asking the live audience on The Voice to weigh in on his song, then he went on to ask the “No Body” singer his opinion.
“Alright cowboy, whatcha think?” Horan asked Shelton in the clip.
“I love the song,” Shelton admits, before singing the wrong lyrics and instead singing the jingle for Lucky Charms cereal.
After quizzing Shelton, he tested Kelly Clarkson and Chance The Rapper’s knowledge on his new song.

“Heaven” is the lead single from Horan’s forthcoming new album, The Show, which arrives on June 9 via Capital Records.
“There’s so much pressure for people to hit certain milestones by a certain age – you get married at this age, buy a house at that age, have kids at some other age,” Horan said in a press release. “But I’ve never conformed to those ideas, and so I wanted to write about how we all should just focus on enjoying our lives and doing what feels right, instead of worrying about what might be expected of us.”
The Show marks Horan’s third studio album and his first new project since the release of his 2020 project, Heartbreak Weather.

Horan and Shelton will be joined by Clarkson and Chance the Rapper on the upcoming season of The Voice, which is set to debut on March 6 at 8pm ET. The show will air on Monday and Tuesday evenings on NBC. The upcoming season marks Shelton’s last as a coach.
“I’ve been wrestling with this for a while and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after next season,” Blake Shelton revealed in October of 2022. “This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me. “It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people, you are the best. It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week.”
Meanwhile, Blake Shelton is currently in the midst of his 18-date Back To The Honky Tonk Tour, which kicked off on February 16 in Lincoln, NE at Pinnacle Bank Arena.
The trek will wrap up on March 25 at Keybank Center in Buffalo, NY, and features support from Carly Pearce and Jackson Dean.
