"I will never stop looking for that next level of my career and how to get there, but not for the reasons that a lot of people want to get there," he says.
"I'm not chasing a dollar and I'm not trying to be the king of the mountain.
Blake Shelton may have chosen the amusing title "Pure BS" for his fourth album, but it's the "pure" part of the name that most aptly describes the music.
However, a source recently revealed that Shelton got cozy with Lambert at an event in Nashville while their respective partners Stefani and East were away.Both artists took to responding to the rumors via social media, with Shelton having the most smartass fun in discrediting them. @mirandalambert and I are so excited about our 100 million dollars!!!Miranda Lambert reportedly blames ex-husband Blake Shelton’s career failure on his romance with Gwen Stefani.The end result, Shelton believes, is his best album to date, and one that has already spawned the hit single "Don't Make Me." As an artist, Shelton has shown steady growth and momentum since his impressive 2001 debut, which earned him the title of Radio & Records magazine's breakthrough country artist that year.His hits run the gamut from the sweet sentiments of "Austin," and "The Baby" through Shelton's powerful take on "Goodbye Time" and on to the hilarious "Some Beach" and the wildly original prison break story song, "Ol' Red." The collection of songs on "Pure BS" is equally diverse, ranging from "She Can't Get That" -- a cheating song with a twist -- to the funny "The More I Drink," in which alcohol turns the song's character into "the world's greatest lover and a dancing machine." Among the album's other standout tracks are a remake of the edgy Chris Knight/Craig Wiseman song "It Ain't Easy Being Me," and the sing-along anthem "The Last Country Song," which features guest vocals from two of Shelton's all-time heroes, John Anderson and George Jones.
