Blake Shelton is gearing up to release the deluxe edition of Body Language later this month and the project will feature four-new tracks, including the song that the country superstar wrote his wife Gwen Stefani as wedding vows. Co-written by Shelton alongside Craig Wiseman, the aforementioned track, "We Can Reach The Stars," will appear as the final track on the deluxe version of the album. The emotional tune was first heard by the guests of Shelton and Stefani's wedding, as the country hitmaker brought everyone, including himself and his wife, to tears with the debut of the song, according to the wedding's officiant, Carson Daly. "He sings her a song, while he's crying, that he wrote specifically for her… [There was] not a dry eye in the house, and that was really a highlight [of the wedding]," Daly revealed.
Previously, during an interview with SiriusXM's Storme Warren on The Highway, Shelton discussed the writing process behind the song he wrote for his wife, Stefani, and to share that he will be releasing the romantic ballad.
The country superstar co-penned the heartwarming track as his wedding vows, and reportedly sang the song to Stefani during their intimate wedding ceremony on July 3 in Oklahoma, in front of the hitmakers closest family and friends.
While the final product created quite a positive stir among country music fans, Shelton confessed that it was a challenging project to take on. "I started trying to write a song because that's kind of the opposite of what she would have expected me to do. I'm to the point where I just don't write that many songs anymore," the star told Warren during the exclusive interview on SiriusXM.
"It's just like pulling teeth for me and something she's always on my case about. So, I started writing this song, and I can only get so far with it, cause I didn't want it to just be something for that moment. I wanted it to be something that was bigger, and I saw I needed help. So, I called Craig Wiseman. I said, 'Craig, you got to help me with this thing. Like, I'm not joking around here.'"
