Country star Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s new single “Happy Anywhere” is a sweet ode to the couple’s relationship. But it hasn’t been easy making a music video to accompany it.
In part, that’s why Shelton likes it so much, going so far as to call it one of his favorites of all time.
The “Happy Anywhere” music video is rife with plenty of smile-worthy moments between the couple. It makes sense, then, that it’s one of Shelton’s favorite music videos he’s ever made. It’s cobbled together from many of the couple’s personal memories and family time.
Shelton took to The Ellen DeGeneres Show for a quick virtual chat about what made the video so special to the couple. Most of the footage is from their own home movies. Plus, they put it together while spending time in quarantine with each other.
“So Gwen’s brother was in quarantine with us, too, in Oklahoma,” Shelton said of the project. “And I don’t know why, over the years, I’ve kind of become a video geek — even though I don’t know how to work these things. I’ve got a few cameras that I have no business owning, let’s be honest. But Todd’s really good at all that stuff.”
Blake and Gwen enlisted Todd, who’s a video producer, to help them bring some of their most important memories to life. The nearly 3-minute clip finds the pair piloting a helicopter, exploring the woods, and even singing together across several moments of the song. They head to the beach in one scene, and Gwen prances around her man in a denim jacket.
There’s a video of a road trip the pair took together as well as some family dance time. It’s clear how much the pair cares about each other from watching all these scenes stitched together. No wonder it’s one of Shelton’s favorites!
