Blake Shelton Releases “Minimum Wage” & Shares a Timeless Lesson

Blake Shelton just released his new song “Minimum Wage” written by Corey Crowder, Jesse Frasure, and Nicolle Galyon. This follows two consecutive number one songs from Shelton with fiancé  Gwen Stefani: “Happy Anywhere” and “Nobody But You”.

“Minimum Wage” is the story of love not having a price tag; reminding us that it’s not about the money, the things you have, or the places you go, it’s about the one your with. Shelton said that he connected with the song immediately when he heard it. He shares, “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.”

“You can make a six pack on the carpet / taste like a million dollar bill / you could make a one-bedroom apartment feel like a house up on the hill / you could make my truck out in the driveway / roll like a cleaned-up Cadillac / Girl lookin’ at you lookin’ at me that way / could make a man feel rich on minimum wage”

This song is certainly relatable and a humble reminder of what’s important in life.
