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...
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!
