Info for Based on a True Story... (Deluxe Edition)
Country superstar/'Voice' coach Blake Shelton is all about getting personal on 'Based On A True Story…,' his seventh studio album to date. 'Every song on the album, I've either been through those situations, or I'm going through them right now,' Shelton admitted. Among the most relevant in Shelton's life at the moment are cuts like 'Doin' What She Likes' and 'Ten Times Crazier.' If fans felt like they got to know the real Blake on the hit NBC show, they'll get another close look with this batch of songs.
The new album is also gearing up for a strong showing on the charts. Lead single 'Sure Be Cool If You Did' currently sits at No. 24 on the Hot 100, its highest position in its 10 weeks on the chart. But there are plenty of other potential hits on 'True Story'
'Based on a True Story does have truly inspired moments. Blake finally finds the country kiss-off he’s been searching for since, well, “Kiss My Country Ass” with the bawdy “I Still Got a Finger,” the 21st-century equivalent of Johnny Paycheck’s “Take This Job and Shove It.” Likewise, “Ten Times Crazier” is a singalong deserving of its status as the name of Blake’s upcoming tour. But it’s on the ballads, “Mine Would Be You” and the oft-recorded hunting ode “Granddaddy’s Gun,” among them, where Blake excels and the avowed smart aleck is found with his heart on his denim sleeve.'

Oklahoma native Blake Shelton moved to Nashville in 1994, two weeks after his high school graduation, to launch a songwriting career that would eventually make him one of the leading males in contemporary country music. Back home, he'd received statewide attention by touring the bar circuit and winning the Denbo Diamond Award, the top award for young Oklahoma entertainers. In Nashville, Shelton was able to maintain that momentum by selling songs to several publishing houses, including Naomi Martin Music, Warner/Chappell Music, and Jerry Crutchfield Music. He also landed a solo contract with Giant Records. Favoring a traditional style of country music that included sentimental ballads as well as blue-collar rock songs, he made a splash in 2001 with the chart-topping single 'Austin,' which spent five weeks at number one. 'All Over Me' and 'Ol' Red' followed in 2002, pushing Shelton's accompanying debut album — the self-titled Blake Shelton, released by Warner Bros. after the dissolution of Giant Records — to gold status.
With Shelton's songs still enjoying airtime on country radio, he returned to the studio to work on a second album. The Dreamer appeared in February 2003, hot on the heels of another number one single titled 'The Baby.' A third album, Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill, was released in 2004, along with an accompanying DVD featuring several of his music videos. Three years later, Shelton scored his fourth consecutive gold album with Pure BS, which featured a guest appearance by girlfriend (and fellow country singer) Miranda Lambert.
Lambert and Shelton attracted more and more media attention as their relationship progressed. Lambert made another appearance on his next album, 2008's Startin' Fires, and sang about their relationship on her own release, Revolution. Shelton eventually proposed in 2010, issuing a pair of well-received EPs — Hillbilly Bone and All About Tonight — that same year. The EPs yielded three number one hits, followed in 2011 by another chart-topper, 'Honey Bee,' which doubled as the lead single from his sixth album, Red River Blue. Shelton married Lambert that spring, several weeks after joining the judging panel of NBC's prime-time singing competition The Voice.
The Voice was a smash hit, elevating Shelton's profile and assisting the sales of Red River Blue. Two seasons of the competition arrived in 2012 and that year, Shelton also released Cheers It's Christmas, a seasonal album containing duets with Reba McEntire, Michael Bublé, Kelly Clarkson, and Lambert, as well as her band Pistol Annies.
Shelton delivered Based on a True Story... — his first full-fledged album recorded since the success of The Voice — in March of 2013, preceded by the single 'Sure Be Cool If You Did' which topped the Billboard country charts.
