Based on a True Story... (Deluxe Version)

Based on a True Story... (Deluxe Version) by Blake Shelton
Released: Mar 2013
Label: Warner Bros.
Blake Shelton is sitting pretty these days, and sounds full of confidence and swagger. Based On a True Story features a dozen songs that fit squarely into his wheelhouse: romantic songs to make the girls swoon and uptempo jams to show off his rebellious side. "Boys 'Round Here" builds off a drum loop and acoustic guitar riff that vaguely recalls Meredith Brooks' '90s hit "B*tch." With his irrepressible drawl, it's even hard not to fall for semi-rapped lines like, "Backwoods legit/ Don't take no sh*t/ Chew tobacco ... Spit." Other highlights include "I Still Got a Finger" (a modern "Take This Job and Shove It"), "Country on the Radio" and "Doin' What She Likes."
