Blake Shelton, Came Here to Forget

Blake Shelton has released his first single following his divorce from Miranda Lambert, and, yes, it's about heartbreak.

But it also might be about the beginning of his relationship with Gwen Stefani, too.

The new hit, "Came Here to Forget," describes a pair coming together in a bar to drink and get over their exes. In fact, a few of the lyrics read: "Girl getting over him and I'm getting over her / The eyes have it made, ain't gotta say a word / Misery loves company, that's why it's you and me."

The chorus continues the theme of the song, "Keep salting the rim, getting even with her / Getting even with him, before the night is over...You better keep on keepin' it lit / Til we can't remember / Can't remember why we came here to forget."

As you likely recall, both Blake and Gwen experienced heartbreaking divorce around the same time last summer, and considering they were working very closely together on The Voice at the time, we're wondering if this song has to do with them helping each other get through that difficult moment in their lives.

Our theory is only further proved by the fact that Gwen tweeted out a link to the song with a bunch of "round of applause" emojis and writing, "Hi @blakeshelton #cameheretoforget gx."

Meanwhile, Blake and Miranda divorced in July 2015 after four years of marriage, and the country crooner started dating Gwen in October (following her August divorce).

Both coaches from The Voice have written about their heartbreaking experiences and moving onto new love with one another in their separate, upcoming albums. They've even written a country ballad together about telling a lover to leave a relationship if that's what he or she really wants (fitting, right?).
