Blake Shelton's Barn & Grill is the third studio album by American country music artist Blake Shelton. Released in 2004 on Warner Bros. Records Nashville, it is his third consecutive album to achieve RIAA gold certification. The album produced four singles in "When Somebody Knows You That Well", "Some Beach", "Goodbye Time" and "Nobody but Me." Like on his previous album, he co-wrote two songs.

Content[edit]

The album's lead-off single, "When Somebody Knows You That Well", was co-written by Harley Allen, who had also co-written Shelton's 2003 single "The Baby". "When Somebody Knows You That Well" peaked at number 37 on the Billboard charts, becoming the lowest-charting single of his career. Following this song was Shelton's third Number One hit, "Some Beach", which spent four weeks at Number One in late 2004—early 2005. After this song came a cover of Conway Twitty's 1988 hit "Goodbye Time", with which Shelton reached number 10, and finally, the number 4 "Nobody but Me".

"Cotton Pickin' Time", one of two Paul Overstreet co-writes on this album, was previously a number 34 country hit in 1989 for The Marcy Brothers from their debut album, and "What's on My Mind" was previously recorded by Gary Allan on his 2001 album Alright Guy.
