12. Just Gettin’ Started

“The album, thankfully, concludes with “Just Gettin’ Started,” probably the album’s most rock-influenced track of all. There is a serious commonality to Bringing Back the Sunshine in terms of its lyrics and subjects, but because they’re almost disguised by the way Shelton handles the concepts, you likely won’t immediately notice and simply find brand new feel-good songs to enjoy.”

11. Good Country Song

“With all of the hip-hop influences and rehashed themes, Blake takes the opportunity to bring country back to its roots with “Good Country Song,” which is certainly an adequate ode to the heritage of the genre. Possibly because Blake has such a genuine “country” voice, he can make all these other songs flow on one album, and inclusion of “Good Country Song” doesn’t sound incongruous at all. Who else, other than class clown Brad Paisley, could get away with it? “Good Country Song” also does a service by making reference to Earl Thomas Conley. Younger country fans might be inspired to look him up.”

10. Just South of Heaven

“One of the few albums that I listen to from beginning to end. Normally I pick and choose two or three songs off an album and go back to those all the time. This one is different, and it fits together with the overall theme of going home and getting back, with a longing for something simple.”

9. Sangria

“Sangria” is the kind of song that would be pitched to, and snapped up by, Jake Owen, had Blake turned it down. The beachy visuals of the lyrics and the subtly Latin rhythm sound like Jake’s stock and trade. It’s the type of thing one might have heard from Kenny Chesney in his Hemingway’s Whiskey era.”

8. Gonna

“Gonna” is a guy’s plan to put a ring on it that all starts with getting the girl into the truck and turning the radio on. Blake Shelton is one of the greats. There is something very genuine about Blake.”

7. Neon Light

“Blake slows the pace somewhat for the next track (and lead single), the head-bopping, it-is-what-it-is “Neon Light.” Listening to it, one can picture a guy drowning his sorrows at the first watering hole he comes across, the bartender consoling him with a “Sorry, bro, that’s rough.” The banjo picking out the groove throughout the course of the song speaks to the pleasant monotony of knowing that whoever just trampled your heart isn’t worth your tears, and dammit, you’re going to enjoy your double shot of whiskey!”

6. Anyone Else

“One song that is a clear departure for Blake is “Anyone Else.” Blake is a tough guy. He don’t take no (lip). Sure, you can believe his heart could get broken, listening to certain of his songs. But were he to be insulted by one of his peers, he would just flip them the bird and get over it, right? Maybe not. “Anyone Else” comes from a vulnerable place. Blake is baring his soul.”

5. I Need My Girl

“The best straight-up love song on Sunshine is “I Need My Girl.” It sounds like a less angry “She Wouldn’t Be Gone.” Our stonewalled protagonist, instead of “driving like hell, flying like crazy down the highway” as he does in the earlier iteration, is this time around “90 miles an hour down the interstate.”

4. Buzzin’

“Buzzin'” is the requisite after-work-kick-back-with-a-brewski entry, but this particular lyrical take on the familiar theme could not have been performed by anyone other than Blake.”

3. A Girl

“A Girl,” a fantastic song detailing the commonalities of relationships from a male’s perspective in a way that, while familiar, succeeds because of its earnest attitude and truth,”

2. Lonely Tonight

“On the third track Blake is joined by Ashley Monroe (wife Miranda Lambert’s partner in crime from the Pistol Annies) on the power ballad “Lonely Tonight,” which isn’t quite a duet, since Ashley doesn’t have a verse to herself. Instead, she augments the chorus quite effectively with her considerable pipes. The gist of the song is that two people who have broken up – and have no intention of getting back together – are considering suspending that mutual agreement for one night. “

1. Bringing Back the Sunshine

“Bringing Back the Sunshine” is full of the excitement and optimism of coming home after being gone for too long. It’s like the rock ‘n’ roll version of Blake’s cover of “Home.” The lyrics don’t have quite the substance of “Home,” but it’s a musically robust joint and an energetic way to kick things off.”
