Blake Shelton's new song, "Came Here To Forget," appears to be all about his divorce from Miranda Lambert and new love with Gwen Stefani, but as it turns out, he didn't actually write the song himself.
According to a new report, it was actually a team of writers who penned the track.
"Blake didn’t write the song, that honor goes to the combined talents of Deric Ruttan and Craig Wiseman. But in a previous interview before the single’s release Blake did say that ‘Came Here to Forget’ was one of the most personal songs he has ever recorded," Celebrity Dirty Laundry reported on Thursday.
According to the outlet, the song could come as bad news for Gwen Stefani due to the suggestion that the woman in the song is not a longterm girlfriend, but rather a way for Shelton to get over his divorce. After all, he talks about two people meeting in a bar and hooking up to forget their past relationships.
“Go ahead and check your phone, like I’ve been checking mine. Nobody’s ex texting for a rewind. Looks like it’s just me and you. Fall in love just enough to get us through what we’re getting through. Is that the kind of thing you want to hear your boyfriend singing about you?” Shelton asks in the track.
"Maybe Blake Shelton was just working through the pain of his divorce from Miranda Lambert when he chose to record ‘Came Here to Forget.’ Maybe a song is just a song, but Blake did say it was quite possibly THE most personal song he ever recorded," Celebrity Dirty Laundry explained.
In other Blake Shelton news, his fellow country star, Luke Bryan, recently joked about his new romance during an interview with Entertainment Tonight.
"I think when you date Blake Shelton ... I just hope it's not affecting her IQ," joked Bryan, who claimed that he doesn't know if Stefani will attend the show over the weekend. "Maybe she's got a good support group around her to keep the positive influences of Blake versus the negative."
