‘God’s Country’ Drama Inspired By Blake Shelton Song In Works At NBC From Shelton & Gary Scott Thompson

NBC is developing God’s Country, a drama inspired by Blake Shelton’s hit song of the same name. The project hails from the long-time Voice coach Shelton, Las Vegas creator Gary Scott Thompson and Universal Television.

Written by Thompson, in God’s Country, when the patriarch of a hardworking Midwestern farm family dies mysteriously in a car accident, his grown children discover he was keeping a devastating secret they could never have imagined.

Shelton’s song “God’s Country”, written by Devin Dawson, Hardy and Jordan Schmidt, was released in March 2019. It has gone triple platinum and won Single of the Year at the Academy of Country Music Awards last week. The song’s official video has been viewed more than 114M times on YouTube alone. (you can watch it below the story.)

Thompson and Shelton executive produce the TV adaptation with Narvel Blackstock (Blake Shelton’s Not So Family Christmas) and Laurie Pozmantier.
