4.0 out of 5 stars 'Hillbilly Bone': Fewer Tracks, Greater Value March 2, 2010
Format:Audio CD
When I read that Blake Shelton was going to release a new album, I was excited. He's one of those underrated country artist that churn out songs that are fun, light and have a knack for embracing his Southern roots. Then I read that there's something special about 'Hillbilly Bone' - it's an EP rather than a full album. I was a bit disappointed considering his last album 'Startin' Fires' came out in 2008 and that this album would only have six tracks (it's amusingly being marketed as Blake Shelton's 'six pack' album). After reading more about this concept and listening to the album, I have to say that for the most part I liked it. Yes, there are only 6 tracks but the plan is for another 'six pack' album to be released later on in the year, and perhaps another in 2011. With the EP being only half the number of tracks as a regular album, the price has really been slashed to make it a value. In short, fewer tracks, but the promise of new music coming more often and at a more reasonable price.

The Good: With there only being 6 tracks, obviously more thought was put into making each track count and worth purchasing. There's a pretty even balance between the uptempo and slower songs, neither seeming to dominate the album. Shelton, as always, is at his best on the faster-pace songs. 'Hillbilly Bone' is fun, has a great beat and feels like a a real Southern/country anthem that features Trace Adkins. 'Kiss My Country A*s' is another song that's upbeat and features Shelton embracing, in a very un-apologetic manner, his Southern background. As with many of his songs like this, I found the lyrics to be amusing and the overall song to really be addictive. 'Almost Alright' rounds out the uptempo set list, having a bit of a Caribbean/summer flare to it and actually neatly wraps up this short album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Concept... March 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I really like Blake Shelton..but at first I was puzzled with the whole "6-pack" album. After listening to it, I have to say every song on it is great...

In today's world of illegal downloads, I can see why something like this could work...you get half the songs..for half the price...

All in all, I really like the songs...it makes me to want to hear more...so yeah when his next "6-pack" is released, I'll be getting that as well....

2.0 out of 5 stars can I get a version without the jokes May 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I actually like the songs and would have given it more stars, except for the jokes which are part of the song tracks. They may be cute the first time you listen to the CD, but if you want to listen to the CD over and over or put it on for background music, you don't need to hear them. They are annoying and reduce the enjoyment of the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want More April 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD was terrific and I didn't want it to end. I have to wrap my brain around the concept of the 6 song CD, because as it was intended to it just left me wanting to hear more. Kudos to Blake and team for coming up with the idea. Can't wait for and will buy the next one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get your hands on Blake Shelton's Six Pak! April 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Blake has decided to release a special six pak EP titled Hillbilly Bone with another EP to follow later in the year.
It includes the title track and his big hit with Trace Adkins Hillbilly Bone,which is all very tongue in cheek.Another humorus uptempo is Kiss My Country Ass,which features Blake embracing his southern roots.
As always his voice really shines on his ballads,such as You'll Always Be Beautiful and the lovely Delilah which is the stand out track on the album.
If you're already a Blake Shelton fan then you're obviously going to love this.If you're new to Blake's music,think Trace Adkin's mixed in with some George Strait.
So sit back and enjoy Blake's hillbilly bone!

Prime cuts: Hillbilly Bone, Delilah

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Blake Shelton you will love this 6 Pack! March 19, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Here is the no BS of this CD, Blake and his crew are making a huge statement here with trying something new for so many reasons!

The economy sucks and alot of us don't have alot of disposable income. So this CD for 6.00 is a better deal then just buying the songs you think you like! (listen to the whole CD you'll love it I swear) If you are a fan of @blakeshelton you know that this CD is all him! With songs like Kiss my Country A$$ and Delilah (which has a great story behind it) You are getting a great deal. The other plus, with this 6 pack more music will come out sooner!! We all want as much from Blake as we can get!! Just go buy it! It will be the best 6 Pack you have ever BOUGHT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Six great songs by a great singer March 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
My only problem with this CD is I wanted more than just 6 songs. Blake has one of the best voices in country music and I love his sense of humor. This CD is a showcase for both. "Delilah" has great vocals and a nice twang. "Hillbilly Bone" and "Kiss My Country Ass" are catchy and fun. This CD 6-pak is a must for all Blake fans and country fans in general.

I thought it was okay but not as good as many of his other work. I just didn't enjoy it as much as others.

Love the songs on this disc but wish there were a few more. I did know there were only six when I purchased, however, so I only have myself to blame. :)

What a fun song! Being someone from out of the "country" zone (Hawaii), I sure related to this song. You could say I "took to it like a pig to mud, a cow to cud"

5.0 out of 5 stars Blake is the best!
It doesn't matter which kind of music you enjoy listening to try this album. Some of the music is very poignant and yet some of the songs are hysterically funny.
