The first time I heard Blake Shelton's version of "God Gave Me You", I knew it would go to number one on the Billboard Country Singles chart. And it did! The song was written by Christian music artist Dave Barnes as a love song to his wife. However many in the Christian community feel the song is really about God giving his only son Jesus to the world.

Blake decided to record the song after hearing it on a Christian radio station as he was driving home from a very bad argument with his then girlfriend Miranda Lambert. Blake said that when he heard the tune, he pulled over and started crying his eyes out. After that he ended up patching things up with Miranda and recording the song. Congratulations to Blake and to Dave Barnes. Here is a video of the recent #1 party in Nashville.
