Subscribe to Lonestar 92 on

Blake Shelton is sure to set off the rumor mill with his new single, “I’ll Name the Dogs.” Shelton’s new song finds him lucky in love and ready to make it permanent, and fans are bound to find the lyrics relate to his relationship with girlfriend Gwen Stefani.

Shelton is talking marriage all throughout the song, painting a picture of the domestic bliss he imagines with his love.

“You find the spot and I’ll find the money / You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny / You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses / Baby let’s get right down to business / I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars / You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar / Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs / You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs,” he sings in the chorus of “I’ll Name the Dogs.”

The up-tempo song is perfect for Shelton with its laid-back approach to life and easy charm, and it has one of the strongest, most compelling melodies of any song he’s recorded and released in years. It’s great to see Blake Shelton moving past the harder emotions from his divorce from Miranda Lambert that helped fuel his last album, If I’m Honest, and back into the happy-go-lucky Shelton that we’ve all come to know and love over the years.

“I’ll Name the Dogs” is the first taste we’ve had of Shelton’s next album, and with its clever, fun lyrics, a melody that grabs you instantly and a sincere, charming vocal performance from Shelton, it’s not hard to predict that it’s also his next big hit.

Did You Know? Shelton released no less than five singles from his most recent album, If I’m Honest.

Blake Shelton’s “I’ll Name the Dogs” Lyrics:

Girl it’s high time I tell ya / No more messing around / Time to lay these cards on the table and just throw it on out / I’m talking you and me with the same street name, same last name, same everything / It’s a real thing, how I feel thing, so I’mma go on and take a swing

Chorus:

You find the spot and I’ll find the money / You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny / You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses / Baby let’s get right down to business / I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars / You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar / Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs / You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs

You can park your car in the driveway / I’ll park my truck in the grass / I’ll put a little swing on the front porch / If you put a little tea in my glass / Watch the sunset from the gravel road / Kiss me in the kitchen on your tippy toes / Still loving on you when the rooster crows / Watching way more than the garden grow 

Repeat Chorus

Yeah laying next to you every night sounds like a damn good life

Repeat Chorus
