As I’ve said before, I was born in Oklahoma and I’ll be buried there and Sophie Muller, who’s a well-known video director, really captured the countryside in a stark and vivid way.”

Written by Devin Dawson, Michael Hardy and Jordan M. Schmidt, Shelton debuted “God’s Country” during the ACM’s Sunday night (April 7).
