Blake Shelton Talks Working With Fiance Gwen Stefani
Meanwhile, Blake Shelton is currently planning his upcoming wedding to popstar, Gwen Stefani. The couple has remained hush-hush about the special day, including when it will actually take place. Sources close to the singing duo have stated that Stefani really wants a summer wedding.
In a recent interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, Blake Shelton discussed his music collaboration with Stefani. “When we get into work mode, I know that it should be super emotional and personal,” he explains. “There’s been times where she comes out on stage, we’ll have a plan if she’s at one of my concerts. And we always try to keep it on the down-low.”
Shelton continues, “And then we’ll start ‘Nobody But You’ or ‘Go Ahead and Break My Heart.’ Then I’ll be singing it, and here I am dying from the time I stand on stage, walk out on stage until that moment hits because I know on that setlist people are going to sh— in their seats when Gwen Stafani [walks] out there. It’s like I’m a kid on Christmas morning. And so that’s what it’s like for me working with her. It’s just exciting. It really is.”
