She tells Taste of Country that her relationship with the ‘Boys ‘Round Here’ hitmaker, who was also her coach on ‘The Voice,’ is more akin to a brother-sister relationship.
“He’s done so much for me. There’s really no way I can repay him back, to be honest with you,” says Sebastian. “Maybe try to pay him back in a bow and arrow, maybe some vodka,” she adds laughing.
The song ‘My Eyes,’ which appears on his record ‘Based on a True Story…’ isn’t the type of song you would sing to your sister or brother, and she admits it’s a little weird singing lyrics like “Come a little closer, girl the way you look tonight / My eyes are the only thing I don’t wanna take off of you.”
“You just get used to it,” Sebastian says, before adding, “I’m hoping it goes No. 1 and if it doesn’t it’s my fault.”
How does Miranda Lambert feel about another woman singing with her man? “She loves it,” the ‘Small Town Soul’ singer says. “It’s like a big happy family and even for Blake to ask me to sing on his album is pretty cool, but to have him feature me, is amazing.”
