For the release of Blake’s new single “Happy Anywhere,” Blake has once again enlisted the help of girlfriend Gwen Stefani.
Written by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins, the feel-good duet is Shelton and Stefani’s second collaboration together.
“Even though Gwen and I just had a single out we decided that, under the circumstances, this year… man, there’s never been a better time for ‘Happy Anywhere.’ We’ve all been in quarantine and lockdown, and hopefully we’ve been doing that with somebody that we really love and enjoy being around. That’s what happened with Gwen and me this summer… and this entire year.”
Blake and Gwen (along with Trace Adkins) will also be performing a one-night-only concert event tomorrow (July 25th) airing at drive-in theaters across the country.
“This is such a great way to enjoy music with your family and friends and stay safe. I’m excited we’re getting the chance to perform a concert for fans, and we’re going to go back and play old hits like ‘Austin,’ newer songs like ‘God’s Country’ and we might even introduce something brand new! So fill up those popcorn tubs and get ready for some country music.”
Blake recently stopped by SiriusXM’s The Highway and chatted with Storme Warren about the new collab:
“You wake up and look at the news and you’re starting to realize that this quarantine is not working out too well for a lot of people who are finding out they didn’t, they don’t like being around each other as much as they thought they did, which is terrible. She and I have experienced the opposite, you know, and we’ve been having a blast. And I think its because, we’ve literally, since our early, early twenties, both of us, kind of been, you know… chasing our careers around. And obviously, none of us like these circumstances, but I’d be lying if I said that I’m not having a blast being stuck at home for this long because I’ve just never gotten to do it before you know, since I’ve owned a home, I’ve never been able to be there more than two weeks max at a time. So, this has been an eye opener. I told my manager, I said ‘man you might have a hard time getting me to go back on the road again actually’.”
