Blake Shelton’s New CD Released Early… Sorta
According to CMT Daily Roundup, one Blake Shelton fan’s local Wal-Mart apparently goofed when they put his album, Red River Blue out on the CD rack for sale this week. The new album isn’t officially released until Tuesday, July 12th! The fan tweeted a picture to Blake, to which he responded, “Ok… I’ts still supposed to be released on Tuesday but I guess some may have put it out early”. It turns out it wasn’t the Victoria Wal-Mart, so don’t rush over there and demand your copy. Red River Blue will hit the shelves here on July 12th, just as originally planned. The new CD include a duet with Blake’s new wife Miranda Lambert. It’s the title cut, “Red River Blue”. Tasteofcountry.com says, “The song was previewed on Country Weekly today, and Shelton sings about the “woman I love” being on the other side. The women he does love in real life is indeed featured on the song. Shelton sings the verses and Lambert comes in on the choruses, making a painfully pretty song even prettier. It’s one of the most heartwrenching, fractured love songs we’ve heard come down the pike in quite some time. When they sing, “Tears in my eyes / She said goodbye / And now I’m red river blue,” we’re reaching for the Kleenex.
