The black and white-tinged cover art features a centerpiece from his hometown of Ada,OK, a water tower that looms over the small population. it was used as a water tower during the Panama Canal construction, then loaded onto a train in pieces and shipped to Ada. Shelton was born there in 1976. Poised to be one of the biggest album releases of 2014 when it hits on Sept. 30, the ninth studio effort by the country superstar comes with a stark black and white image of a water tower found in Ada,OK, Shelton’s exceedingly tiny hometown with a population of just under 17,000 residents, per the 2012 census. According to an interview with Rolling Stone, the cover image came after much contemplation on how to present his latest collection of songs, which could be interpreted as a return to his roots: “As a country singer, I gotta get back to singing about getting drunk because there’s people out there – and I’ve been one of them – that have had their heart broken, or they’ve had a tough day at work, or they get stabbed in the back.”
