Blake Shelton Releases His New Song, “Minimum Wage”

Blake Shelton‘s new song “Minimum Wage” is out now!

The country music super star shares that he’s actually had the track for a while now, “‘Minimum Wage’ is a song that I heard for the first time about a year ago…maybe a little but longer, and had a lot of ideas how I wanted to record this song.”

Blake recalls hearing “Minimum Wage” for the first time, “I fell in love with it instantly. I love the message of the song, 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 best part for him, “The song on top of that…is just a blast.”

So, putting on his “judge hat” like he does on NBC’s The Voice, what is Blake’s assessment of his new song, “‘Minimum Wage’ is just all about having fun. Listen to this record, it’s got an awesome intro…which I love. It’s got a killer guitar solo…and I guess the singing is OK too.”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
