Blake Shelton's "I'll Name The Dogs" strikes the right balance of romance and humor. Enjoy the star's latest tune right here!

Country music star Blake Shelton’s brand new single “I’ll Name the Dogs” is sure to be a big hit on the wedding reception circuit.

“You find the spot and I’ll find the money/ You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny/ You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses/ Baby let’s get right down to business,” Shelton sings in the tune’s chorus, closing with the line, “You name the kids and I’ll name the dogs.”

The 41-year-old singer knows how to capture the sweetness of a laid-back romance and “I’ll Name the Dogs” fits in perfectly with his previous tracks “Honey Bee,” “Doin’ What She Likes,” and “My Eyes” just to name a few. Blake could easily provide the soundtrack for an entire date night with his catalog at this point.

“‘I’ll Name The Dogs’ is a bit of a throw-back song for me,” shared Shelton in a statement. “It’s traditional country with fiddle and steel and I’ve got Jimmy Olander from Diamond Rio playing the guitar solo. It brings the sound back a little more traditional for a minute, which I felt like needed to happen musically for me.”

In the music video for “I’ll Name the Dogs,” the Oklahoman acts as the wedding singer as a couple and their families sail through a wedding day— the newlyweds aren’t quite who you expected. Enjoy watching the story unfold below!

Did you catch two of Blake’s girlfriend Gwen Stefani‘s sons (Kingston and Zuma) in the music video? Look closely at the dance floor during the wedding reception scenes.

“I’ll Name the Dogs” is Shelton’s first new release since his 2016 album If I’m Honest, and his second single the year, following the hit “Every Time I Hear That Song.” Check out the song’s lyrics.

“I’ll Name The Dogs” Lyrics

Girl, it’s high time, I tell ya
No more messin’ around
Time to lay these cards on the table
And just throw it on out

I’m talkin’ you and me with the same street name
Same last name, same everything
It’s a real thing, a how I feel thing
So I’mma go on and take a swing

You find the spot and I’ll find the money
You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny
You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses
Baby, let’s get right down to business

I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar
Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs, yeah

You can park your car in the driveway
I’ll park my truck in the grass
I’ll put a little swing on the front porch
If you put a little tea in my glass

Watch the sun set from a gravel road
Kiss me in the kitchen on your tippy toes
Still lovin’ on you when the rooster crows
Watching way more than the garden grow

You find the spot and I’ll find the money
You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny
You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses
Baby, let’s get right down to business

I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar
Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs

Yeah, laying next to you every night
Sounds like a damn good life

You find the spot and I’ll find the money
You be the pretty and I’ll be the funny
You plant the flowers, I’ll plant the kisses
Baby, let’s get right down to business

I’ll hang the pictures, you hang the stars
You pick the paint, I’ll pick a guitar
Sing you a song out there with the crickets and the frogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs
Yeah, I’ll name the dogs
You name the babies and I’ll name the dogs
Yeah, I’ll name the dogs

Y'all this one brings me back! Hell go give it a listen!! #IllNameTheDogs
