Blake Shelton Names ‘Red River Blue’ as New Album Title
Blake Shelton is a busy man with a schedule that would cripple mere mortals, thanks to his coaching gig on the ratings juggernaut known as 'The Voice,' a brand-new marriage to country sweetheart Miranda Lambert and his sweet, summery and chart-ascending new single 'Honey Bee' all filling up his 2011 so far! But Shelton is no mere mortal, and he has just revealed that his ninth album will be called 'Red River Blue.' The album is set for release on July 12.
'Honey Bee' is already a Top 10 song at country radio and is Shelton's fastest rising track to date. Hit singles are something Shelton is used to, as eight No. 1 hits decorate his resume, and 'Honey Bee' appears on track to be his ninth.
Interestingly enough, a few weeks back, it we reported that Shelton and Lambert had recorded a duet called 'Red River Blue,' so perhaps including her in the title track of his new album is just another incredibly romantic wedding gift for his new wife.
Meanwhile, Shelton continues to effectively (and hilariously) coach his charges on NBC's 'The Voice' every week.
