Why Are Newlyweds Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert Singing About Breaking Up?

Blake Shelton on Tuesday teased the title track off his upcoming CD ‘Red River Blue,’ which features vocals from his brand-new wife, Miranda Lambert.

It’s a relatively melancholy song, about a man who loses his woman, and fans might be surprised to hear the happily married couple sing about such a sensitive topic.

But according to Taste of Country, Shelton says the song was actually written for them, after the “few times when we broke up for like a week, way back in the day. It’s about a relationship falling apart and he has to take the blame. Miranda and I have lived that song a bunch of times. It is very special. I could not think of a better title.”

Listen to the preview now at Country Weekly.

‘Red River Blue’ hits stores on July 12.
