YESSS!!! Blake Shelton’s brand new album about his rollercoaster life of the last 18 months has finally dropped, and it is every bit as amazing as we hoped it would be!
Aww! Blake Shelton, 39, has just released his surefire smash If I’m Honest May 20, and the super autobiographical album with have you both smiling and in tears!

If I’m Honest is such an apt title, because this is his most autobiographical album ever, featuring tracks that look back on the last year-and-a-half of his life. We already got a taste of his feelings about the beginning of their relationship with Gwen on his first single “Came Here To Forget,” as well as their sweet duet together “Go Ahead and Break My Heart.” Miranda is clearly on his mind when it comes to the heartbreaking “Bet You Still Think About Me.”
“A Guy With A Girl,” is also about the gorgeous girlfriend, as the girl in the song turns the head of everyone in the room, while he’s just a guy on her arm. Blake has admitted that’s how he felt when they first started dating Gwen and she took him around to parties with her A-list pals where he felt like a fish out of water. Stream music, completely unlimited and ad-free, RIGHT HERE.
The album isn’t all love and heartbreak, as he has pure country fun on “Straight Outta Beer” and “Green” about farm living, presumably on his Oklahoma ranch. He also has the good-time number “Doing It to Country Song,” but the bulk of the album is devoted to love, loss, joy and pain, just like so many great country songs are!
Blake even tries his hand at Gospel with “Savior’s Shadow,” while the album ends with “Friends,” a fun song about buddies that Blake wrote for The Angry Birds animated flick, where voices Earl the Pig. It’s definitely one that fans old and young will definitely love.
