My fiancée and I love all of Blake's songs. We can bellow out every word to all his songs. We tend to have our first song we dance to at our wedding be "God Gave Me You" but this song is just one those songs that you get together with a couple drunk people and sing.

Over you is a song written by Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert about Blake Sheltons brother, Richie Shelton. On November 19th, 1990, Richie Shelton passed away in a car accident. Blake Shelton was only 14 years old. Richies death was a big factor in Blakes pursuit of music, Blake inherited Richies record collection which brought about his strong love and passion for country music. Richies death has always been a sentitive subject for Blake, but after taking the time to open up to his wife Miranda lambert and tell her the story of his brother, they wrote "Over you." And in 2012 "Over you" took home the trophy for song of the year at the CMA awards. The couple looked shocked at such a win and as they climbed the stage Lambert couldn't hold in her tears. Blake stood strong and spoke for the both of them. "I lost my brother in a car wreck when I was 14. When I decided to sing country music, my dad told me you should write a song about your brother. I lost my dad in January... It's so amazing to me that even after he's gone, he's still right." and thanking his wife for her contributions to the song adds "I just needed the right person to write it with."
