Among all the albums released yesterday was Country bad boy Blake Shelton‘s Red River Blue. The album features 11 songs including the smash hit “Honey Bee” along with the second single “God Gave Me You.”
The first single from Red River Blue, “Honey Bee” has already proven a success with it’s stats. Blake calls it a “positive love song” and people must agree because it’s spent 4 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Songs chart.
Watch Blake Shelton perform “Honey Bee” on Letterman last night:
So what about this new tune? Blake says, “God Gave Me You” is an important song for me for this record. It’s no secret, Miranda Lambert, [Blake’s new bride] and I have had our ups and downs over the years and this was definitely at a low point at our relationship. But I heard that song come on the radio — for whatever reason I was flipping through stations and landed on a contemporary Christian station, and that song came on and I almost had to pull the truck over. It was one of those moments for me where I felt like I was hearing that song at that moment for a reason.”
We have Shelton’s new single “God Gave Me You” in the jukebox right now, along with so much more new music, so what are you waiting for?? Get over there and check it out!
