Product Description

On his self-titled debut album, Blake Shelton isn't afraid to speak his mind - about music or life. With an edgy attitude recalling Waylon, Willie, Johnny, and heroes Bobby Braddock (who produced and wrote for the album) and Earl Thomas Conley (who also collaborated), Oklahoman Shelton is a strong new voice in country music that speaks to the past, the present and the future.

Amazon.com

Oklahoma-born country newcomer Blake Shelton recently made a big splash with "Austin," his first hit single, a cleverly rendered love ballad built as much on lyric contrivance as inspiration. But Shelton's self-titled debut CD, produced by the great veteran country songwriter Bobby Braddock, also contains quite a few harder-hitting, meatier tunes. "Old Red," for instance, is a twangy and resolutely down-home prison tale that Shelton imbues with growling tongue-in-cheek humor. "Same Old Song" is a subtle but soulful Braddock-penned putdown of the current state of country music, to which Shelton brings all the passion and conviction the song deserves. On the socially conscious "Problems at Home" (which Blake cowrote with Billy Montana and Don Ellis), the young singer laments far weightier issues, like school shootings and the destruction of the Amazon rain forests, with similar fervency. On these songs and others, the twenty-something neo-honk-tonker shows just the kind of musical vision and hard-country instincts that are so woefully lacking in the current crop of Nashville hipsters. --Bob Allen

Take a minute, and turn on your favorite country (radio) station. OK? So, what do you hear?
Is it country music, or just pop? These days, it's hard to find good; honest, country music.
Blake Shelton is breath of fresh air in these days of techo-driven, tradition-bashing pop-country
music. It's hard to even call today's country, country! Could you hear Hank Williams singing
"I'M GONNA GETCHA GOOD", or Merle Haggard singing "SHE'S MY KIND OF RAIN"? I didn't think so...
From the get-go, Shelton's album shows that he is no pop act. From the honky-tonk rouser
"EVERY TIME I LOOK AT YOU", a song that proves you can never forget a heartache - to the
depseration ballad "ALL OVER ME" (which was co-written by Shelton's hero, Earl Thomas Conley),
Shelton takes the listener on a journey of the heart.
"SAME OLD SONG" and "I THOUGHT THERE WAS TIME" are the two stand-out songs on the album.
Both songs, penned by the legendary BUDDY BRADDOCK (who just happened to produce this album),
are materpieces - that will no soon be forgotten. "SAME OLD SONG" is a punch-in-the-face to
artists like Shania Twain, Tim McGraw, Chris Cagle, and Faith Hill. The song; about the sugar-
coating that goes into making a country song, could very well solidify that Shelton will never
stray from Traditional Country. "I THOUGHT THERE WAS TIME" brings us back to a sound, much like
Conway Twitty's singles, in the late 80's - a strong beat, and heavy steel guitar.
Nashville needs more artists like Blake Shelton. WE need more artists like him, as well...

Not even 24 hours after Blake Shelton's first CD was released and I was hooked. Austin is an extrodinary song, but Blake Shelton goes beyond with his other 9 tracks. The first track deals with how one reacts when they run into someone that they haven't seen for a while, but they still have feelings for. This is something I was just faced with so I was able to really relate. Track 5 is a song about breaking out of prison, sounds bad, but it is a great song. All in all.... Definately two thumbs up!

I liked the song "Austin" when I first heard it, then I heard it over and over and over, you get the point... then they released "All Over Me" and I heard it, and thought "Gee, I need to get this album". I cant stop listening to it. This guy has some kinda style that country music has been lacking over the past several years... I thought country was doomed when Billy Gilman came out, but Blake, you are the saviour, the chosen one to take your place beside the likes of George Strait and Alan Jackson. I just don't want to see Blake go down the same road as Billy Ray did. This is a curl up next to the fire and snuggle CD, nice for cold winter nights, or warm ones in the hot tub. Play it loud, play it proud. Thanks Blake.

Blake Shelton's style of country music is literally the greatest to hit Nashville since the debut of Garth Brooks. His smooth and velvet sounds when his heart is in the song Austin pulls the toughest of heart strings known to man. Anyone who has ever loved and lost will relate to this song. All over me will definitely hit as high as the notes that Blake sings. But if you really want to hear a beautiful tune, fast forward your CD to his hit "I thought there was time". It will teach you not to take love for granted and to remember that this life is too short. This singer, in my opinion, will be the next Horizon Award singer in the country genre. Catch him in concert if you get a chance and believe me, Blake Shelton will give you your money's worth and more! Buy this CD (and listen to all of his songs and you'll know why this man is a breath of fresh air and a definite compliment to the country music industry.

What can I say??? Blake Shelton is TRUE-COUNTRY-MUSIC! While other artists are singing about rainbows and happiness, Blake Shelton sings about LIFE! He sings about what is going on in the world. Blake Shelton sings of heartache and hurt.
Don't get me wrong, he's no Johnny Cash. But, Blake Shelton is country! Songs like "OLD RED" and "PROBLEMS AT HOME", could be placed right along side of "UNCLE PEN" (Bill Monroe), and "WHITE LIGHNIN'" (G. Jones).
Just reading the title, "EVERYTIME I LOOK AT YOU", one would assume it's another happy LONESTAR song, but it ANYTHING BUT happy! A song about hurt. A song about the past coming back. A song about REAL LIFE (something the country-pop acts, have NO idea about)!
Get out your Kleenex for "PROBLEMS AT HOME", the peak of the album. Blake compares his problems, to the world's, and is more than effective. With a haunting 3rd verse, "PROBLEMS AT HOME" is a classic. A song that will be remain, LONG after Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have had their flash in the frying pan.
A few years back, George Jones released a song called "WHO'S GONNA FILL THEIR SHOES". First, Brad Paisley came along, and stood beside tradition. Now, BLAKE SHELTON stands up against all that is WRONG with country music today!

I first heard Blake Shelton's song Austin one late night when I was listening to the radio. I wasn't really paying attention, until I heard the memorable intro, and Blake's incredible voice. As I tuned in to the words, I sat stunned at the intensity of the song. It went straight to my heart. The line at the end of the first chorus -'And P.S., if this is Austin... I still love you'- blew me away. I loved the song at first hearing, and sat glued to the radio for the next week, hoping to hear it. Finally, I gave in and bought the cd. I didn't really care about the other songs - I just wanted to hear Austin!! But, as it turned out, I enjoy the WHOLE cd. Several of the songs are refreshingly different. They have orignal endings, and are a welcome break from country's sometimes monotonous themes. And they're ALL catchy and fun to sing along with! I can't wait for Blake's next album.
