Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani Are A Musical Power Couple

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have now released six duets together. They are….

  • “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” released in 2016
  • “You Make It Feel Like Christmas,” released in 2017
  • “Nobody but You,” released in 2019
  • “Happy Anywhere,” released in 2020
  • A cover of the Judds’ “Love Is Alive,” released in 2023
  • “Purple Irises,” released in 2024

“Happy Anywhere,” the second-newest of Shelton and Stefani’s original collaborations, was released on July 24, 2020, taking country music by storm. It sat at the #1 spot on the iTunes chart for some time and was the most-added song on country radio in the week of its release.

It eventually claimed the #1 spot on the U.S. Country Airplay chart.

This success came hot on the heels of “Nobody but You” claiming the Country Airplay chart’s #1 spot for the week ending in May 2, 2020.

Shelton and Stefani have proven to be a dynamic duo capable of releasing hit songs. So will they ever release a full duets album together?

Blake Answers The Question Everyone Wonders – Will He And Gwen Drop A Duets Album?

This is the exact question country radio host Bobby Bones asked Shelton when he called in for a phone interview on July 28, 2020. But the answer Shelton gave isn’t the one most fans were likely wanting to hear.

I don’t think so,” he said.

Shelton has been outspoken about how he no longer sees a real point in releasing full albums anymore. He touched on this while speaking with Bones, saying:

The more and more time that goes by I’m starting to wonder why even do an album at all. I’m having a blast just putting out singles.”

At the time Shelton gave that interview, the last album he released was 2019’s compilation record Fully Loaded: God’s Country. It mostly contained older material, but featured a few new tracks such as “Nobody but You,” “Hell Right” and “God’s Country.” (Shelton has since released a new record in 2021).

Because he isn’t big on releasing albums, Shelton doesn’t plan to release a duets record with Stefani any time soon. But he did say there’s a chance they’ll put together an album of their songs years down the road.

Maybe at the end of 10 or 20 years here, we’ll have enough duets together that we can put ‘em all together as a hits package,” he said. “I don’t know.
