Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s relationship is one of the feel-good love stories of recent history. The two are celebrating how that love made them better with their new duet, “Nobody But You.” Ahead of its release on Blake’s new album, God’s Country, out December 14, the two talked about their relationship in separate interviews with Entertainment Tonight.
“Blake saved my life, everybody knows that,” Gwen remarked. “Like, we’re just having the time of our lives, and we never expected that this late in our lives, so we’re just trying to savor every moment together, and just to be back on The Voice as well — not to change the subject — but working together again has been really fun, and I love being here and I love being with him.”
Blake elaborated on those feelings when he was asked later on. “I don’t want to remember what I was like before Gwen, actually,” he joked.
“I’m a little bit of jerk to you still,” he added, speaking to his fellow coach, Kelly Clarkson. “But I was a jerk to everybody … Look how nice I am now!”
Even their fellow judges can’t deny that watching them together is something special. “Them being on the show together, it brings a nice energy to the show,” said John Legend. “I love the energy with them being on the show together. It kind of softens Blake a little bit.”
