“Well, I can tell you one thing for damn sure, Oklahoma is God’s country,” Shelton told CMT.com. “So that’s where we shot the music video for the song.

As I’ve said before, I was born in Oklahoma, and I’ll be buried there.”
The song, resonated with Shelton the first time he heard it.
“‘God’s Country’ is a song that has a strong and deep meaningful lyric, but at the same time it leaves it up to the listeners’ interpretation,” Shelton said in a statement with the press.“But no matter where you are from or where you’re standing it is my belief that you’re standing in God’s Country. It’s really about a state of mind. Wherever you’re from and how you feel about that place. For me, it’s about being from Oklahoma – where I was born, raised and still live today.”
