Remember not too long ago when Blake Shelton said he wasn't really focusing on releasing new albums but rather just taking things song by song? He did do that releasing his most recent #1 "God's Country", his single "Hell Right" with Trace Adkins, and his duet with Garth Brooks "Dive Bar".
Today he announced that he will be releasing a new album... kinda.
It's called Fully Loaded: God's Country and will feature twelve tracks. Seven of the singles we will have heard already, they are hits from his previous albums, and will also include five new singles. Blake said in a press release that fans will be familiar with those songs before the album is released, "With five new songs on this album, you’ve got “God’s Country," "Hell Right" and a few more that haven’t come out yet – maybe I wasn’t supposed to say that. But the fans will hear most of the music on Fully Loaded before it hits the streets in December.”
The track listing is not availble as of yet, but the release date is December 13th. Put that on your calendar!

Carly later confirmed this by announcing on Facebook Live that she did in fact have a new song coming out that Lee lent his vocals on.
Luke Combs helped Carly write her new single along with songwriters Jonathan Singleton and Randy Montana. "I Hope You're Happy Now" will be featured on Carly's sophomore album which is due out later this year.
