Power couple Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were recently married, but not many got an invite. Trace Adkins was one of the many famous friends to not be invited. The Voice judges wed in a very private ceremony. Blake Shelton’s private Oklahoma ranch provided the venue. Amid a small crowd of close friends and family, the two were married at the small private chapel at the ranch.
However, if you ask Trace Adkins he wouldn’t have gone anyway. At least that’s what he jokingly said in a recent The Boot interview.
“I probably wouldn’t want to come, anyway, because I didn’t want to witness that woman throw her life away like that,” Adkins said with such great Southern sarcasm. Those who know about the relationship between Shelton and Adkins know it was just playful banter.
When Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton got married back on July 3rd, there were no celebrity entourages. The only other celebrity to attend the ceremony, reportedly, was Carson Daley. Daley is a host on The Voice and has appeared on the show with both Shelton and Stefani.
With such a small wedding, there are surely those that do feel slightly spurred by the famous couple. Blake Shelton was interviewed on SiriusXM’s The Highway and revealed that was the case.
“So I’ve had awkward conversations with so many of my friends since,” he revealed to host Storme Warren. The weight of who to send wedding invites to can be a social headache. What if great aunt Julie doesn’t get one and now you don’t get that $20 in the mail on your next birthday? These decisions have consequences.
Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton’s Relationship
As for Trace Adkins and Blake Shelton’s relationship, it couldn’t be better. The two have upcoming music coming out with Adkins’ upcoming project The Way I Wanna Go. That album comes out at the end of the month, August 27th. Adkins has released 12 studio albums to date. With the new album, he will also surpass 40 singles released over his career.
Blake Shelton and Adkins recorded Hillbilly Bone with each other back in 2009. That song won the ACM award for “Vocal Event of the Year”. The two will be touring together for a while in 2021. That will be part of Shelton’s 2021 Friends and Heroes Tour. Outside of that, Adkins is touring on his own solo tour for his album of the same name.
With so much work coming up together, the two friends will have a chance to top the charts with their upcoming song together. Perhaps The Way I Wanna Go will top the success of previous songs the two have collaborated on. While they couldn’t celebrate at the wedding, surely the two will find time to party while touring and playing on stage. Hopefully, there will be more great quips and rib rubbing from Trace Adkins.
