Undiscovered: 6 Blake Shelton Songs We Think You’ll Love

The Nash News would like to wish Blake Shelton the happiest of birthdays today as he completes another trip around the sun. Shelton has been a household name for two decades, a judge on The Voice since it first started, and has released 12 studio albums. The nine-time Grammy nominee broke the record for the most consecutive number one songs on the Country Airplay charts with 17 singles reaching that top position in succession. In celebration of his birthday, we have put together a few of our favorite Blake Shelton songs you may have forgotten about.

1. “Austin” Blake Shelton (2001)

“Austin” was Blake Shelton’s breakout debut song that was released back in 2001. The emotional song was written by David Kent and Kirsti Manna and gave Shelton his first No. 1 song.

2. “My Eyes feat. Gwen Sebastian” Based on a True Story… (2013)

This sultry, acoustic love song is a deep cut on Shelton’s studio album Based on a True Story. His vocals are mixed with amazing harmonies from Gwen Sebastian that add liveliness to the tune.

3. “I Lived It” Texoma Shore (2017)

“I Lived It” is a song about Shelton’s life growing up. It captures the essence of small town living that not everyone has experienced as he sings, “Oh, that’s alright, that’s just the kind of life / That made me who I am / Just taking my mind on a visit, back in time ’cause I miss it.”

4. “Hillbilly Bone feat. Trace Adkins” Hillbilly Bone EP (2010)

This boot stomping song is upbeat, energetic, and fun. Trace Adkins and Shelton are a great musical match as their country voices fit together perfectly on this track.

5. “Honey Bee” Red River Blue (2011)

With powerful guitars, “Honey Bee” is a sweet song to Shelton’s love interest as he sings, “You’ll be my sunny day / I’ll be your shade tree / You’ll be my honeysuckle / I’ll be your honey bee.” In the lyrics he also makes references to iconic country stars Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty.

6. “The Last Country Song” Pure BS (2007)

A throwback song from 2007, “The Last Country Song” features Shelton singing with help from John Anderson and George Jones. Despite the sad sounding title, this song is upbeat and of good cheer. The trio’s voices shine together especially towards the end of the song on the last chorus.
