Story updated below
Back in March, someone on my team here at NashvilleGab posted about a song on Blake Shelton’s upcoming new album that seemed possibly to be aimed at Miranda Lambert. People basically lost their ever-loving minds and freaked out and called my team some not very nice names over the story. After pressure from various directions, that team member decided to remove the post rather than deal with all the B.S. (and I’m not talkin’ Blake Shelton here).
The lyrics mentioned that had people up in arms were: “You put the hang in hangover”, “you put the low in blow,” and “you put the F-U in my future.”
My team member thought they deleted the story, but I, being the rebel that I am, decided to save it (you can read the newly-restored story here) because I was pretty sure the story was going to end up being 100% true. And you know what? I was 100% right on the money.
Entertainment Tonight had the chance to listen to all of Blake’s new album, “If I’m Honest,” and guess what song was the very first one they mentioned.
“She Got a Way With Words”
Songwriters: Wyatt Earp, Andy Albert, Marc Beeson
She put the her in hurt
She put the why in try
She put the S.O.B. in sober
She put the hang in hangover
She put the ex in sex
She put the low in blow
She put a big F.U. in my future
Yeah she’s got a way
She’s got a way with words
Yes she’s got a way with words
So to anyone back in March who doubted my team and our sources and decided to freak out over something so silly as rumored lyrics, you can officially suck it.
Update: Okay, I’ve had a few people bring up the fact that Blake didn’t write this song and it could just be a song that he liked and not about Miranda at all. That’s very true. But I stand by my thoughts that despite the fact that Blake didn’t write the song, he did pick the song for some reason. And on an album that he has said numerous times is his most personal to date and basically autobiographical, I think it’s at least fair to say that it’s
most likely very possibly about Miranda.
“I mean, it doesn’t take, you know, a rocket scientist. If you have followed my career even a little bit in my life, you know what has happened with me in the last, gosh, eight or nine months,” Shelton tells ET’s Nancy O’Dell. “It is all on the the record.”
And who cares if it is anyway? I mean the pair went through a divorce, the guy’s allowed to express some feelings about his ex-wife, if that’s in fact what he did. More power to him and more power to Miranda if she chooses to write an album expressing her feelings towards him. I still love them both.
