Had me right from the beginning with the first song..."Boys' Round Here." As I continued to listen, I realized I had to have the whole CD. He can tell a great story through music and this CD has everything for up tempo songs with attitude to ballads that will melt your heart. Men and women both will find their favorites but will love to listing to them all. It's almost like you get a glimpse of Blake's life and the simple things that are important to him like in the last song... "Granddaddies Gun." Great songs, great singer, great performer and a great asset to the world of country music. He can charm your socks off with a few words set to music. I just LOVE it and think you will too ;)

This is another fine album from Blake Shelton. This album is entitled "Based On True On A True Story". Blake certainly can tell a story with his music. He shares a little bit of his personality in each song. "Boys Round Here" is a song where Blake sings about how proud he is to be a country boy. He enjoys talking about trucks and girls. He also enjoys drinking beer. Blake seems like a man that I would like to hang out with. This is a very enjoyable first track. My other favorite track "My Eyes." This is a song about a how a beautiful woman can make a man feel. "Doing What She Likes" is a song about all the little things that a man can do to make a woman feel special. Blake provides me excellent tips I can use to find a girlfriend. Many of these songs are love songs, but Blake sounds great singing them. "Still Got A Finger" is a song for all the people who work hard every day to make a living. I know this a country album, but this song really rocks. I love the spirit of this song very much. "Granddaddy's Gun" is another song I like. Blake makes me believe that a gun is something I can be proud to pass on to the next generation."Country On The Radio" is a song about how much Blake loves country music. I love the banjo and fiddle playing on this track. "Sure Be Cool If You Did" is a song about how a special woman can change a man's life forever. This song makes me feel hopeful that I will find a special woman soon. "Do You Remember" is a pretty song about remembering all the things that makes a man fall in love with a woman. I love this album.

Got this CD a few hours again, what great collection of songs. A bit of honky tonk in Boys Round Here, some typical country ballads in Mine would be you and the hit Sure be cool if you did. Some good fun tunes like Country on the radio. It doesn't get much better than this, something for every country lovers taste.

I confess that I was initially introduced to Blake Shelton's music during the summer of 2011. I had heard his "Honey Bee" song from the Now 39 compilation (which I reviewed on August 24, 2011) and a fun concert of his that I attended back in February 2012. I had also decided to give the "Based On A True Story" a chance because of his Red River Blue cd (which is pretty good). "God Gave Me You", one of his songs from "Red River Blue" is both an uplifting song and has a music video available online that symbolizes the great love that Blake Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert have for each other. However, I am also somewhat familiar with multiple 80's/90's songs from the country music genre because my late adoptive mother and older sister both enjoyed and listened to country music frequently as I was growing up. Additionally, I was initially exposed to country music in my early childhood due to the fact that my maternal grandmother also listened to country music. "Based On A True Story" is even better than "Red River Blue" and contains among the following intense songs: Boys Round Here (feat. Pistol Annies & Friends), "Sure Be Cool If You Did", "Do You Remember", "Country On The Radio", "Doin What She Likes", "My Eyes" (feat. Gwen Sebastian),"Mine Would Be You", and "Ten Times Crazier." It is only a wild guess, but it appears that some of the happy love songs from "Based On A True Story" are a positive tribute to his wife Miranda Lambert. "Based On A True Story" by Blake Shelton is good for those who are open to listening to modern country music with songs that cover the various facets of love and living life.

As soon as I heard Grand Daddy's Gun I had to send it with a Amazon Gift Cert download to my kids and grandkids. Smiled and cried thru the whole song.

How happy our granddaughter was to receive the four discs as part of her 21st birthday gifts. And how happy her grandmother is to have another country music lover in the family, even if it is now country and not classic country. We actually were able to hear the discs at her birthday celbration as she immediately played them for our pleasure over speakers in the back yard. A great gift idea for the future.

There was not one track I didnt like. I think that this is one of his best but I am a huge fan of his music. I think my favoritte is My Eyes. This album was dedicated to his Dad.
