The sentimental song comes four months after the pair tied the knot at his Oklahoma home. Prior to releasing the track, Blake shared a photo from their wedding day on Instagram to announce the news.

Carson Daly, who officiated the ceremony, poked fun at his friend on Instagram, commenting on his post, “You didn’t decide to! I forced you to. Thank Jesus too, yielded the best wedding moment & a hit song! You should buy me a tracker [with] the royalties cowboy.”

That’s why we wear rings…because we want everyone to know. I’m thrilled to share this song with the world.”
Blake, who met Gwen on the set of “The Voice,” opened up to Seth Meyers about writing the song in October 2021.
“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 told the late night host.
