Blake Shelton Gives Gwen Stefani's 'Revlon-Red Lips' a Sweet Shout-Out on His New Album

Blake Shelton Gives Gwen Stefani's 'Revlon-Red Lips' a Sweet Shout-Out on His New Album
Blake Shelton can’t help but gush about girlfriend Gwen Stefani on his new album, Texoma Shore.

The 41-year-old country singer, who has been hot and heavy with Stefani since they began dating in November 2015, gave the L.A.M.B. designer a sweet shout-out in one of the album’s tracks called “Turnin’ Me On.”

Co-written with Jessi Alexander and Josh Osborne, the song calls back to Shelton and Stefani’s time “messing around” (something he elaborated on in a recent concert).

There’s even a mention of Stefani’s “Revlon red” lips — a fitting reference considering the 48-year-old

Lee Brice Dedicates New Song 'The Best Part of Me' to His Baby Daughter -- Listen! (Exclusive Premiere)

Lee Brice’s little girl is getting her own song!

Shortly after releasing “Boy,” the lead single off his self-titled fourth studio album, the 38-year-old country singer welcomed his third child with wife Sarah, a daughter named Trulee Nanette. Though he didn’t write the hit, Brice recorded it in tribute to his two sons, 9-year-old Takota and 3-year-old Ryker.

Now, Et has the exclusive premiere of “The Best Part of Me,” the last track off his record, which drops Nov. 3. The best part? It's all Trulee's. “My little girl had to have a song of her very own,” Brice tells Et. “This is it, and it’s very special to me.”

Blake Shelton Totally Wrote in a Sweet Gwen Stefani Reference on One Song on 'Texoma Shore'

Blake Shelton Totally Wrote in a Sweet Gwen Stefani Reference on One Song on 'Texoma Shore'
Blake Shelton is giving Gwen Stefani a sweet shout-out on his new album.

With Texoma Shore set for release on Nov. 3, the country singer has officially unveiled the album's track list, featuring one song called "Turnin' Me On," which Shelton co-wrote with Jessi Alexander and Josh Osborne. The sultry track is about exactly what you'd think it'd be about, featuring one line that appears to be a direct reference to Stefani's iconic red pout.

"Knows how to set me on fire, she's always holdin' the match. And when my body's beside hers, there ain't no turnin' back," Shelton croons. "She's Revlon red in the blackest night, lighting up the room in the world just like she's turnin' me on."

Stefani, of course, has been a longtime brand ambassador for Revlon cosmetics -- and an even longer advocate for a bold red lip. (Subtle, Blake!)

Review: Acm's All Star Salute to the Troops, featuring Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, and more

Review: Acm's All Star Salute to the Troops, featuring Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, and more
Las Vegas—No genre embraces the American way of life with such unbridled patriotic fervor as country music, so paying tribute to the U.S. military seemed like a natural fit. But “Acm Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops” took what could have been a flag-waving, jingoistic exercise and turned it into a meaningful, often moving salute by not only honoring men and women in all branches of the armed services, but by including them as performers. And some of them threatened to steal the show from the professionals. Taped Monday (April 8), the night after the Acm Awards, and airing May 20 on CBS, the All-Star Salute featured top names such as Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert , Toby Keith, Hunter Hayes, Dierks Bentley, and more. Hosted by “NCIS: Los Angeles” stars Chris O’ Donnell and LL Cool J (who must have a pact

Dierks Bentley: 'I don't want to talk about fluff'

Dierks Bentley: 'I don't want to talk about fluff'
Los Angeles—On his seventh studio album, "Riser," out today, 11-time Grammy nominee Dierks Bentley finds himself examining the circle of life as he deals with the death of his father followed by the joy of the birth of his third child and first son. Though the album has plenty of upbeat tracks, it's the deeper cuts, like current Top 10 single, "I Hold On," the dark "Bourbon In Kentucky," and "Here on Earth" that stick to your ribs. A 40-minute documentary, "Dierks Bentley: Riser" follows the country star's journey as he makes the album. Bentley screened the doc here Feb. 20 and HitFix spent some time with him afterward. Cmt produced a 30-minute special that features much of the documentary's footage, while a deal for the full documentary to bring it to a TV outlet, such as Netflix or Hulu is being worked on. Bentley filmed an episode of Cmt's "Crossroads" with OneRepublic,

Cma Awards 2013: Blake & Miranda Sweep —Again!

Cma Awards 2013: Blake & Miranda Sweep —Again!
For the inconceivable fourth-straight year, married couple Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert took home their respective Vocalist of the Year awards at the Cma Awards. Keep reading to find out who else took home an award!

Hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley started country music's biggest awards show with an opening that the nation will be buzzing about in the morning.

The two first addressed feuds in country music by delivering a duet of "Why Can't We Be Friends?" and then decided to lightheartedly start their own outrageous feuds (e.g., Brad Paisley vs. Kenny Rogers; Darius Rucker vs. Julianne Hough).

The well-orchestrated comedy skit continued with a satire of the rocky launch of Obamacare via a spin on George Strait's "Amarillo By Morning" ("Obamacare by morning, over six people served"), and an applause for Taylor Swift for keeping her clothes on unlike her female pop music counterparts.

Miley Cyrus turns 18: A birthday stroll through the EW archives
Miley Cyrus turns 18 today, and to celebrate, PopWatch looked back at the EW archives to chart her career — both the highs and the controversies (remember when they were just about the prices scalpers were charging for concert tickets?).

April 2006: EW reviewed the new Disney series Hannah Montana, giving it a C+. “Turns out Saved by the Bell was subtle! Father-daughter team Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus star as a dad and daughter, but stop those achy-breaky hearts midflutter – Hannah Montana is Miley’s show,” Gillian Flynn wrote.

Does Joe McElderry's The Climb lack the X Factor?

A massive ballad about positivity is hardly the most exciting choice for X Factor winner Joe McElderry's song. So why did Simon Cowell select it?

Joe McElderry has a great deal to look forward to in the coming months, not least a style overhaul so aggressive and merciless that it will make the process of metal being injected into Wolverine's skeleton look like a pat on the bum from Gok Wan. But while a new look Joe will emerge blinking into 2010's autumn sunshine, for the time being the old one is No 1 on iTunes with The Climb, a song first (and very recently) made famous by Miley Cyrus.

With its plinky piano intro, chorus about challenges and overall feel of what we might term "generic inspirational chat", The Climb is already proving something of a controversially uncontroversial choice. It's too predictable, some argue – although last year the producers went

Songwriter on Exclusion of Miley Cyrus' 'The Climb' From Grammy Race

Shortly after news that Disney pulled out Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" from nominations list of 2010 Grammy Awards was covered by media, one of the song's writers Jessi Alexander spoke what she has in mind concerning the withdrawal. "To be honest, it's devastating," she told Entertainment Weekly.

"I spent one night on a high. And then the following morning was a new low, when I was told it was gonna be pulled by Disney. .... It sucks. I've got flowers and champagne showing up and people constantly congratulating me, and now I don't know how to respond," she stated. "To have Naras [National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences] grant me a nomination and then take it away has been tough. And humiliating, really. It makes it look like I tried to submit it, or I'm covering up."

"The Climb" was considered illegible to be granted a nomination for Best Song Written for a Soundtrack because the song
