BLAKE SHELTON RELEASES NEW SINGLE “MINIMUM WAGE” TODAY
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (January 15, 2021) – The riches of love don’t come with a price tag attached. It’s a classic theme in music and certainly a hallmark of the country genre, from Charley Pride’s “All I Have To Offer You Is Me” and John Anderson’s “Money In The Bank,” to Alan Jackson’s “Livin On Love” and Chris Stapleton’s “Millionaire.” Warner Music Nashville superstar Blake Shelton taps into that storied tradition with his new single, “Minimum Wage,” available everywhere now (LISTEN HERE).
“I heard ‘Minimum Wage’ over a year ago and connected with it immediately,” says Shelton. “It’s the timeless truth that you don’t need a lot of money or possessions, you just need love.”
Written by Nicolle Galyon, Corey Crowder and Jesse Frasure, “Minimum Wage” builds on the foundation that love is priceless. “I relate so much to the lyrics of this song. I have a lot of great memories playing dive bars in Nashville and then driving back to Oklahoma to play a gig,” Shelton continues. “I gravitate toward songs that feel like the stories of where I’ve been and where I am currently in my life, and I’ve got a lot of happiness in joy in my life these days.” Check out the song’s loving lyrics HERE.
“Minimum Wage” follows back-to-back love songs with his fiancé and fellow The Voice coach, Gwen Stefani. “Nobody But You” and most recently “Happy Anywhere” both reached No. 1 on the country airplay charts, giving them consecutive No. 1 singles together and bringing Shelton his 28th career chart-topper.
2021 is already proving to be another busy year for Shelton as the Opry member gears up for a special show at the Opry House tonight. Meanwhile, Shelton is hard at work on season 20 of The Voice as he records new music to be released later this year.
