For Blake Shelton, "Minimum Wage" is all about love

No Comments Country Music News

Warner Music NashvilleFor Blake Shelton, it was love at first listen, when he initially encountered his current top-20 hit.

‘Minimum Wage’ is a song that I heard for the first time about a year ago, maybe a little bit longer,” he explains, “and had a lot of ideas how I wanted to record this song. I fell in love with it instantly.”

Though it’s no doubt been a long time since the Oklahoma native was making minimum wage, he was drawn to what the tune has to say.

“I love the message of the song,” Blake says, “and I love that it says something about how you don’t need a lot of money, you don’t need all the possessions in the world, you just need to have love.”

“And the song on top of that is just a blast,” he adds.

While his current-day knowledge of hourly pay may not be that extensive, Blake does know a thing or two about love, since he’s presently engaged to longtime girlfriend Gwen Stefani

So far, Blake hasn’t revealed if “Minimum Wage” is the precursor to a new album or not, as he’s previously said he enjoys the freedom of putting out single tracks.
