The Dreamer (Music - Blake Shelton)

Lead Performer: Blake Shelton; Producer (group): Warner Bros.; Status: In Season

Shelton’s second album finds the blue-collar hitmaker drawing on old-fashioned themes (backwoods pride, Jesus, the comforts of corn liquor) and hitting a home run with ”The Baby,” a powerful tearjerker about a mother and son. The tall Oklahoman isn’t much on subtlety, but his earnest emotion ingratiates him even when his material grates.
