Shelton Reintroduces Emotional Song Back Into Setlist

One of the critical but often overlooked elements of putting on a live show is constructing the perfect setlist from start to finish. When you’ve had a long career as Blake Shelton has, it can be more difficult than one might think to put together the ideal live set.

With so many songs to choose from, it can be hard to narrow things down. During this tour run, Blake Shelton decided to put a song back into his rotation that hasn’t seen the light of day in years. It turns out, Blake Shelton added the emotional fan-favorite song The Baby back into the mix.

The Baby was recorded by Shelton for his second studio album, The Dreamer. It also became his second number-one single back in 2003.

Why Country Star Decided To Change Things Up

Originally, Shelton said that he decided to pull this song from his live set because of its heavy nature. After performing the song, he would look out into the crowd and see people “crying and running to the bathroom.”

It took Blake years to realize that this kind of emotional impact wasn’t actually a bad thing. According to Shelton, it was a “mistake” to stop doing the song back in the day. He added that “the power of country music” comes from “when a song connects with people.”

Bringing this classic tune back into the rotation appears to have been a fantastic move by Blake Shelton, as many of his fans are glad he made the decision to re-introduce it.
