Blake Shelton’s new single “Came Here To Forget” written by Deric Ruttan and Craig Wiseman, describes a couple coming together for some drinks in a bar to get over their exes. The lyrics depict a pretty lonely life on the rebound–two jilted lovers desperately trying to drown their feelings in drink and physical affection from a kindred spirit.
The country singer paints a bleak picture of rebound romance, in stark contrast to his fellow The Voice coach and current partner in trying-to-forget, Gwen Stefani, who was positively giddy about falling for her new love in the made-for-tv music video Make Me Love You.
The song is the first single off of Blake’s upcoming album If I’m Honest out May 20. The single has managed to hit #1 on the all genre ITunes chart.
