As Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani near the Top 10 on the country charts with their heartfelt duet, “Nobody But You,” the couple is sharing a new acoustic version of the song with fans.
Released Friday (March 20), the acoustic rendition of “Nobody But You” debuted with an accompanying music video that features the couple performing the song on a deck overlooking a beautiful valley.

“Nobody But You” is Shelton’s latest single and third release from his new album, Fully Loaded: God’s Country. Shelton first heard the song after songwriter Shane McAnally, who co-wrote the tune alongside Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne and Tommy Lee James, pitched it to him while he was on set in Los Angeles.
“I was at The Voice compound and Shane McAnally is on Songland, so they were there doing some cross-promotion. Shane came to my trailer and said, ‘Man, I got a song for you,’” Shelton previously explained. “I knew he had Gwen’s number from a write, so I told him to send it to her as I was being called to set. I actually got the song twice because my producer Scott Hendricks emailed it to me right after.”
Sometime later, he decided to listen to the song and it stopped him right in his tracks.
“Then one day I was driving with Gwen and I said, ‘Hey let’s listen to that song from Shane, because Scott sent it to me too – it must be pretty incredible.’ When I heard it, I was just floored,” he recalled. “I realized how important that song was for me and where I am in my life right now. I just think it’s magical. I literally think it’s important of a song as I’ve ever recorded.”
Shelton and Stefani performed the song together at the 2020 Grammy Awards.
