Blake Shelton's New Single Hints at Miranda Lambert and Gwen Stefani

Blake Shelton doesn't hold anything back in his new ballad "Came Here to Forget."

From the first verse, it's impossible not to assume the song is about his ex-wife, Miranda Lambert, and his current relationship with Gwen Stefani, who divorced Gavin Rossdale late last year. "Girl you gettin' over him, and I'm gettin' over her," Shelton, 39, croons. "Misery loves company, that's why it's you and me. Buying each other drinks, back at the bar, thick as thieves. Stealing these little sips. Doing our best to make the best of the worst of it."

The lyrics -- which take an "intimate snapshot" of two people commiserating at a bar -- continue to go right along with Shelton's real-life relationships. "Go ahead and check your phone, like I've been checking mine. Nobody's ex is texting for a rewind," he sings. "Looks like it's just me and you. Falling in love just enough to get us through. While we're getting through."

The chorus also is telling, when Shelton declares he's "getting even with her and even with him before the night is over."

Shelton goes on to sing, "That first kiss was like a Colorado hit. You better keep on keeping it lit. Til we can't remember, can't remember why we came here to forget."

While the track does appear to be brutally honest, Stefani -- who revealed that her song "Make Me Like You" is about Shelton -- praised her boyfriend's new tune after Kelly Clarkson called it "amazing."

The 46-year-old singer tweeted: "@kelly_clarkson @blakeshelton sooooooooooo good #newmusic #gottohearitfirst #lucky 😊gx."

"I've had a lot of music over the years, but I don't think I've ever had a song before that's such a direct look into my life," Shelton revealed in a press release. "That's why I'm so excited about this particular song."
