Blake Shelton’s ‘Based on a True Story…’ Earns Platinum Status
Blake Shelton has scored his second platinum record.
The singer's latest album, 'Based on a True Story ...' has reached platinum status, signifying sales of 1,000,000 units. Shelton was awarded the plaque during the final night of his Ten Times Crazier tour in his home state of Oklahoma on Friday, Oct. 4. Local radio stations KTGX, KWEN, KVOO and KJKE helped surprise Shelton along with Warner Music Nashville's President & CEO, John Esposito and Southwest Regional Promotion Manager, Mark Niederhauser.
The 'Mine Would Be You' singer feels like his latest project might be the best one he has recorded so far in his illustrious career. "I think that just taking a simpler approach to making this album made it better because I wasn't comparing it to anything else," he says. "We put it together piece by piece, saying, 'Hey, man, I love that song. Let's cut that.' I was just recording things I loved and the next thing you know we had built something terrific. I'm really proud and excited about the songs on it."
Shelton may have wrapped his latest tour, but he can still be found on the small screen two nights a week, as he serves for his fifth season as a coach on the hit NBC TV show, 'The Voice,' which airs Monday nights at 8PM ET and Tuesday nights at 9PM ET.
