Ever wonder what you'd find if you got your hands on Blake Shelton's phone?

We're guessing Adam Levine's phone number and pics of wife Miranda Lambert, for starters.

But it turns out Shelton's phone is also home to one very eclectic music library. So when we asked the singer to share some of his favorite tracks with us, he happily obliged.

Read on for his picks:



The tune I can't get out of my head is … "Meghan Trainor's 'All About That Bass.' That's a fun one! [Sings] 'I'm all about that bass, 'bout that bass, no treble …' You know it? I literally can't relate to it lyrically, but it's just crazy fun."

The song that makes me cry the minute I hear it is … "Vince Gill's 'Go Rest High on That Mountain.' If I'm thinking about something sad and I hear that song, forget about it! It's over. I mean, I got to go hide somewhere. That one and Gill's 'Never Knew Lonely.'"

The song that makes me think of my wife is … "David Frizzell and Shelly West's 'You're the Reason God Made Oklahoma.' The song is basically how Miranda and I met. We sang it at a CMT duets concert, and every time I hear it, it's like I instantly go back there."

To find out what song makes Shelton feel like a kid again and what he secretly likes to rock out to, pick up a copy of the Sept. 29 issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now
