Blake Shelton Defends “Minimum Wage” Song From “Ridiculous” Backlash
Blake Shelton isn't making "Minimum Wage" now, but he has the "best memories" from the days when he did.
In a new interview with CMT, The Voice coach says he simply doesn't understand the backlash surrounding the single.
"It's literally a love song about how if times are tight and you ain't got much money—as long as you have love and you're happy—at the end of the day, that's all any of us can really hope for," he explains.
"You got it if you got that.
That's all that matters." The 44-year-old speaks from experience.
He tells CMT he could "barely" make ends meet in the early days of his singing career.
