Red River Blue
Released: Jul 2011
Label: Warner Bros.
Now a TV star (via The Voice) and a tabloid-worthy husband (via Miranda Lambert), Blake Shelton's profile has never been higher than on his sixth full-length, which he fills with an expert mix of goofiness and lovey-doveyness: "Hey" and "Get Some" (great stoner gag) represent the former, sugar-sweet No. 1 smash "Honey Bee" and titanic power ballad "God Gave Me You" the latter. Not much here for fans of his louche, bar-crashing "Kiss My Country *ss" side ("Ready to Roll" is, paradoxically, about snuggling on the couch), but an appealing crassness still shines through all the sweet talk.
