Blake Has to Make Himself Record Sad Songs

Life is good for Blake Shelton. How good?

So good that Blake tells United Stations he had to force himself to cut some sad songs for his album Based on a True Story . . . , which comes out March 26.

"Even with the ballads I did I was very like, 'I don't want to do a sad song, damnit!' It was like, 'Well, you better. This is a country album so you gotta do a couple,'" Blake says, laughing, "and so there's a couple of ballads on there, but I'm just not in that frame of mind right now, you know? I don't want to make that kind of music. . . . Now it's just [that] everything's pretty awesome."

And that includes starring on yet another season of NBC's The Voice, which kicks off March 25, the day before his album release.
