Blake Shelton is keeping it in the family with his just-released “Minimum Wage” music video.
The clip was directed by his soon-to-be brother-in-law, Todd Stefani, and shot at Ole Red in Shelton’s hometown of Tishomingo, Oklahoma. The video features Shelton performing the country love song alongside his band in front of a live audience.
“‘Minimum Wage’ has such great tempo and I can’t wait to be able to get back out on the road and play it for fans. So I felt really strongly that the music video needed to be a live performance with the crowd having fun,” Shelton recently told CMT of the clip.
Co-written by Nicolle Galyon, Corey Crowder and Jesse Frasure, “Minimum Wage” finds the country superstar reveling in his solid relationship and acknowledging that one does not need material items to be happy.
“I heard ‘Minimum Wage’ over a year ago and connected with it immediately,” Shelton says. “It’s the timeless truth that you don’t need a lot of money or possessions, you just need love.”
“Minimum Wage” will appear on Shelton’s forthcoming new album. The track follows back-to-back No.1 singles “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere,” which are both duets with his fiancée Gwen Stefani.
