Blake Shelton Hopes to Bring Back Country Music with ‘Sunshine’

BlakeShelton

Blake Shelton is going back to his roots with his upcoming album Bringing Back the Sunshine. He tells RollingStone Country, that for him, that means drinkin’, heartbreak, and good ole’ country music.

The whole album is searching for parts of me that I think have… not gotten lost along the way, but stuff that I haven’t addressed in my music as much as I used to, whether it’s drinking songs, heartbreak songs or songs about how people treat you. Things like that,” the country superstar tells Rolling Stone Country.

My last couple of albums have been so positive, because when I made them I was just getting married. It’s been in this awesome place,” he says. “But after a while, as a country singer, I gotta get back to singing about getting drunk because there’s people out there — and I’ve been one of them — that have had their heart broken, or they’ve had a tough day at work, or they get stabbed in the back.”

At the end of the day, Blake Shelton has a sound, that he admits, he’s gotten away from. Country music has a whole has gotten away from the sound that gave it it’s name, and Blake hopes his new album brings everyone back.

It’s the only way to be a little more political about where we are in country music,” he says, “and I’m as guilty of it as anybody,” Blake says. “We’re pushing boundaries… and pushing ‘em and pushing ‘em. And to me, with that title, it’s like I’m bringing back some country into this thing.”

Bringing Back the Sunshine hits stores September 30th.

Blake Shelton & Fellow Coaches Get in Wild West Showdown in New Promo for “The Voice”



Blake Shelton
and his fellow coaches on “The Voice” are headed to the wild west. At least that’s what this promo for the NBC talent show suggest…. Or maybe it’s saying talent can come from anywhere? I dunno… either way it’s hilarious to imagine such a showdown between Blake, Adam Levin, Gwen Stefani, and Pharrell Williams.

Season 7 of The Voice premieres Monday, Sept. 22nd (8 p.m. ET) on NBC
