Blake Shelton, 'If I'm Honest' (May 20th)

The new album from Nashville's top tabloid heartthrob deals openly with his divorce from Miranda Lambert and his new relationship with Gwen Stefani, his fellow coach on The Voice. "It's my job as a country singer to sing about things that have happened in real life and hope that somebody out there can relate to it," says Shelton. In addition to post-breakup fare like the first single, "Came Here to Forget," the album also includes lighter songs such as "Doin' It to Country Songs," featuring the Oak Ridge Boys. "When people hear it, they are going to understand every emotion I've gone through in the last year," Shelton says of If I'm Honest, "and that makes me feel really good." Joseph Hudak
