As they say: happy wife, happy life – and it seems that Blake Shelton is with her.
More than a year after the country star exchanged vows with her longtime love, Gwen Stefani, Shelton confirmed to ET’s Cassie DiLaura that she’s in a “new phase” of her life.
“Look, I love music and I love Sound, I love all the cool things to do with my job, but all those things now take a backseat for Gwen and the kids and it’s a whole new phase of my life,” he said in a reference to former Gavin Rossdale, Stephanie’s three sons. shared in.
As a result, Shelton said, she is not in the same rat race with her career and has the freedom to release singles. “I enjoy putting on songs when I feel like it and luckily the record label allows me to do that,” he shares. “They always support it when I do it and my stupid idea of doing ’90s country videos – they’re always on board and because of that, we sometimes have ‘God’s Country’ Or ‘Happy Anywhere.'”
The singer continues, “I just go, ‘Hey, I want to do this. Will you guys help me?’ And they will jump on board and we have some big records. Hopefully this will be another one.”
The ‘one’ he’s referring to is his newly released track, “No Body”, as well as a throwback music video – Mullet.
It’s a callback to the 46-year-old’s early years in music, when he was a young aspiring singer in Nashville. Around the same time, a California band called No Doubt was climbing the charts with hits like “Just a Girl” and “Don’t Speak.”
What would young Shelton have said if he had known that one day they would be husband and wife?
“I might have said, ‘Are you talking about the girl who wears orange in her video?’ I’ve never understood until now that he’s from Orange County,” he admits. “My whole life of knowing who Gwen Stefani was was like ‘Is that the girl who wears an orange in the video? Oh my god, she’s so hot, but why is she obsessed with this weird orange, you know?'”
And although he’s putting his other half and their family first, that doesn’t mean Shelton has given up on his beloved craft.
He says, “I want to keep my musical side alive until they fire me – the fans fire me. TV’s fun and it’s been great for me and it really helped my music.” I’ve helped.” “I’ve pulled viewers from TV who might not even know who I was, might not even know who I was when I started Sound And that’s something that took me to a different level in my career and I love that.”
But at the end of the day, Shelton said, a country singer is someone he’s ever considered a professional. “When all else is said and done,” he notes, “that’s what I still hope to survive.”
