Artist of the Week: Blake Shelton
Somewhere between filming The Voice, prepping for his upcoming 2018 Country Music Freaks Tour and opening his Ole Red restaurant, our Artist of the Week found time to record a brand new album, Texoma Shore!
Blake Shelton’s last album, If I’m Honest, set the bar high. It debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 Chart and was certified gold in the U.S., but we have a feeling the best is yet to come! His 11th studio album, Texoma Shore is a nod to the time Blake Shelton spent at Lake Texoma with girlfriend Gwen Stefani this past summer. The two haven’t been shy about their relationship lately, and we love that it’s making its way into his music!
“At the House” has a perfectly content Blake Shelton calling for some downtime at home together, while “Turnin’ Me On” makes no secret about the passion between the two singers. And if his single “I’ll Name the Dogs” is any indication, the two are in a good place! The song is a throwback to the 90s and actually inspired the entire album, according to the country star.
Hear it the way it was meant to be performed: on a ranch by a campfire! And try not to sway — we dare you. Get excited for the new album, and check out all of Blake Shelton’s tunes on iHeartRadio.
