Blake Shelton wrote a special song for Gwen Stefani on their wedding day called “We Can Reach The Stars,” and it will be on Blake’s upcoming Body Language Deluxe album.
Blake told Seth Meyers last night (10/06), “And Gwen has always… She is constantly on my a– about, I should be writing more songs. ‘How come you don’t write more songs?’ And I have gotten lazy about it over the years. And so I decided, ‘Well, you know, I’ll step up and come up with something,’ and so I did.”
He added of the new song, “I’m putting out a deluxe version of this record that we have out now, and we’re going to put it on there, and so I’m excited for people to hear it. A lot of people ask me about it since they found out that I did that. We’re excited about it. I want people to hear it—I mean, my god, I married Gwen Stefani. I want everybody to hear that! I mean, that’s the ultimate bragging rights.”
Shelton also revealed that writing vows and the song came about because of Carson Daly. He said, “And it was Carson’s idea that we should write our own vows or whatever—have this piece just to say before we say ‘I do.'”
