Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani – Happy Anywhere

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani’s “Happy Anywhere” made quite an impact upon its debut.

Not only did the feel-good tune shoot to the No.1 spot on the iTunes all-genre chart and rake in the most first-week adds at country radio, but “Happy Anywhere” also took the No. 1 spot on the Country Digital Song Sales chart, selling nearly 27,000 tracks. Additionally, the Shelton/Stefani collab brought in nearly 45 million streams and 60,000 U.S track equivalents to date.

The success of the song has blown Shelton away.

“I’m glad everyone is loving the song as much as we do,” the Oklahoma native shared. “It’s been fun for us to perform the song a few times and I can’t wait to be able to play this song on stage with an audience. Until then we’re going to be happy where we are.”

“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.”

The song finds the couple appreciating the simple things in life and confessing they can be happy no matter where they are as long as they’re 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.”
