Music for the Road: Blake Shelton

Another CD I took along in our trip to the Orange Bowl and Search for the Warmth, was Loaded: The Best of Blake Shelton.  He is, of course, part of country music's new big married couple along with new wife Miranda Lambert.  He has been recording since 2000, with his first hit "Austin."

He has gone from long hair to short to just very curly.  And, this one, as title, is loaded with hits.  I have most of his individual CDs.

Loved the "Ol' Red" about the lusty tracking dog and his prison break. and then that great "Some Beach" play on words.  Then he became "The world's greatest lover and dancing machine" in "The More I Drink."  This song always reminds me of Jerry singing it on karaoke at the Fox Lake Legion.

He sure has the "Good Old Boy" thing going, like Moe Bandy and Joe Stampley used to have.

Hey, "Hillbilly Bone" with Trace Adkins and "Kiss My Country Ass" if you have a problem with him being a good old boy.

Well Worth Listening to, Especially If You're Unfamiliar with Him.  --RoadDog
