Shelton explores the album as a whole, sharing: “You know when you put on Texoma Shore and start playing it, I think the first thing you notice after the first two, three, four songs is wow, this album, this guy singing these songs must be in a good place. I am, and I wanted my album to reflect where I am right now. I just felt like, coming out of the last album, I wanted to come out of that dark place and be happy again and be, you know, the guy that people know to be laughing all the time and having fun and cutting up.I think this album is a reflection of that and where I am right now and how good I feel and how confident I feel about where I am in my life.”
His new song “When The Wine Wears Off” has Shelton, like many of his Texoma Shore tracks, at home with someone he loves. The twist on this Ashley Gorley, Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman-penned tune is that this time Shelton doesn’t know if she loves him back.
“I love ‘When The Wine Wears Off,’” explained Shelton. “It’s one of those songs that I think we’ve probably at some point all been there, whether we were drinking or not, where you got wrapped up in the moment the night before and had something that you thought was incredible. There’s always that thing in the back of my mind thinking, I wonder if this other person feels the same way I do about it. I just love it because it’s so real.”
