Album of the Day
In the last decade, Blake Shelton has become a household name thanks to his appearances on NBC-TV's The Voice but back in 2001, he was just another aspiring country singer – albeit a tremendously promising one. Shelton's self-titled debut from that year was produced by one of his mentors, veteran songwriter Bobby Braddock, and as you'd expect, the 10 tracks on the Warner Bros. collection are varied, memorable and unafraid to go beyond Nashville niceties. Blake co-wrote four of these including Country Top 20 single “All Over Me”; “Ol' Red” and “Austin” - which spent five weeks at No.1 – were even bigger hits. Well crafted and performed with conviction, the platinum-certified BLAKE SHELTON celebrates its 20th anniversary tomorrow and shows the singer-songwriter primed for stardom.
