Blake Shelton Announces New Album 'Texoma Shore'

Prolific country singer and Voice judge Blake Shelton has announced his newest album Texoma Shore, due out on November 3rd. The album will be his eleventh, and comes just a year after the release of his last LP, If I'm Honest.
The title Texoma Shore comes from Lake Texoma, a lake on the border between Texas and Oklahoma, not far from Shelton's hometown of Ada, Oklahoma. The lake has been a place of great memories, Shelton said in a statement -- so much so that he "literally recorded this album on its shore." As a result, the album serves as his love letter to country music, as evidenced by the more back-to-basics country sound that characterizes the album's first single, "I'll Name the Dogs."
Shelton's previous album If I'm Honest debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, and his last four projects have gone either Gold or Platinum. The Voice judge also appears on a new holiday duet with girlfriend (and former Voice judge) Gwen Stefani, titled "You Make It Feel Like Christmas."
