Blake Shelton’s fans have been hounding him that it would sure be cool if he did release a new album this year. And so the details are out and a new album will hit stores sooner than most people expected.

Blake says that his new album will be called Based On A True Story and will be released on March 26th.

The lead song from the album is “Sure Be Cool If You Did,” which you’ve been hearing on 98.1 The Hawk for about a month now.

Blake will also be heading his Ten Times Crazier Tour this summer.  That tour kicks off July 19th in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
