The Voice coach's last album, Based on a True Story… in 2013, recently returned to No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, largely to its $5.99 sale pricing at iTunes during the tracking week ending July 20. The set debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in April 2013 and marked the singer's best sales week ever with 199,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Shelton performed a free concert for more than 60,000 fans on the Atlantic City beach on Thursday, and he's touring U.S. arenas and amphitheaters through October.
