Blake Shelton, God Gave Me You

Blake Shelton, God Gave Me You, Mannequin

Mannequin’s thoughts: There is an honesty to the recording and delivery of this song, to its roots in country music. This, matched with the smooth tone and timber of Shelton’s voice created a delightfully timeless wedding song. It begins with tender guitar and grows almost organically in the production and intent. We appreciate and respect the influence of such songs. Even our non-religious friends have made a place in their hearts for this song. Kudos to its author and all of the artist who have given their breath and sweat to it ~
