After performing “Happy Anywhere” during the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards earlier this week, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani have shared a new take on the song with the premiere of an acoustic clip.
The just-released video features the couple performing a stripped-down version of the feel-good duet. The longtime couple can’t help but smile at each other throughout the video, once again proving they can truly be happy anywhere as long as they are together.
“I’m running wide open/ I was born with my feet in motion,” Shelton and Stefani sing on the chorus. “But since I met you, I swear/ I could be happy anywhere/ Any map dot location/ You’re always my destination/ You’re the only thing that I’m chained to/ I could be happy anywhere/ I could be happy anywhere with you.”
“Happy Anywhere” was co-written by Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Matt Jenkins and follows the release of Shelton and Stefani’s chart-topping duet, “Nobody But You.”
In a recent interview with People, Shelton revealed that he and Stefani actually recorded “Happy Anywhere” before they cut “Nobody But You,” and later realized this was the perfect time to release it.
“‘Nobody But You’ was a big song for us, but we actually recorded ‘Happy Anywhere’ before that. We were waiting for the right time to release it, and I knew that time was now,” he explained. “We’re all still socially distancing, so there’s no better time to be happy anywhere with the person or people you love. It doesn’t matter where in the world you are — as long as you’re with them, you’re happy.”
