“My last couple of albums have been so positive, because when I made them I was just getting married,” Shelton said. “It’s been in this awesome place. But after a while, as a country singer, I gotta get back to singing about getting drunk because there’s people out there — and I’ve been one of them — that have had their heart broken, or they’ve had a tough day at work, or they get stabbed in the back.”

Blake Shelton’s newest album title, Bringing Back the Sunshine, sounds like a compilation of happy songs. However, the singer says that isn’t the case, which explains the album’s cover art featuring a stormy black-and-white scene.

“My last couple of albums have been so positive, because when I made them I was just getting married,” he told Rolling Stone Country. “It’s been in this awesome place. But after a while, as a country singer, I gotta get back to singing about getting drunk because there’s people out there — and I’ve been one of them — that have had their heart broken, or they’ve had a tough day at work, or they get stabbed in the back.”
