    I confess that I was initially introduced to Blake Shelton’s music during the summer of 2011. I had heard his “Honey Bee” song from the Now 39 compilation (which I reviewed on August 24, 2011) and a fun concert of his that I attended back in February 2012. I had also decided to give the “Based On A True Story” a chance because of his Red River Blue cd (which is pretty good). “God Gave Me You”, one of his songs from “Red River Blue” is both an uplifting song and has a music video available online that symbolizes the great love that Blake Shelton and his wife Miranda Lambert have for each other. However, I am also somewhat familiar with multiple 80’s/90’s songs from the country music genre because my late adoptive mother and older sister both enjoyed and listened to country music frequently as I was growing up. Additionally, I was initially exposed to country music in my early childhood due to the fact that my maternal grandmother also listened to country music. “Based On A True Story” is even better than “Red River Blue” and contains among the following intense songs: Boys Round Here (feat. Pistol Annies & Friends), “Sure Be Cool If You Did”, “Do You Remember”, “Country On The Radio”, “Doin What She Likes”, “My Eyes” (feat. Gwen Sebastian),“Mine Would Be You”, and “Ten Times Crazier.” It is only a wild guess, but it appears that some of the happy love songs from “Based On A True Story” are a positive tribute to his wife Miranda Lambert. “Based On A True Story” by Blake Shelton is good for those who are open to listening to modern country music with songs that cover the various facets of love and living life.
