Blake Shelton recently returned to the stage for the first time in over a year with a performance at Country Thunder in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin and he brought a very special guest along with him.
Gwen Stefani joined the country superstar to perform their chart-topping duets “Nobody But You” and “Happy Anywhere” at the popular festival. Shelton also gave his new wife her own time in the spotlight as she performed the 1996 No Doubt hit, “Don’t Speak.”
Shelton, who joined in on guitar, was all smiles as his bride performed No Doubt hit. Festivalgoers seemed to love the moment as they sang along from the crowd.
“Gwen Shelton everybody,” Shelton said, beaming. The couple then shared a kiss as the crowd erupted into cheers.
Stefani recently opened up about their relationship during an appearance on Jade Iovine’s Tell Me About It podcast, admitting she never saw their relationship coming.
“It [the wedding] was beyond dreamy but I think the crazy part was jut it was so unexpected in my life,” Stefani said, adding, “so to try to choose an outfit, a wedding gown and all that, I had no idea what it was gonna be.”
Even though she didn’t see her love for Shelton coming, it was a welcome surprise.
“I just feel so lucky,” Stefani says, “and I think one of those things that you think about a lot in your life is you just you don’t know the future.”

Shelton and Stefani tied the knot on the “Minimum Wage” singer’s ranch in Oklahoma on July 3, 2021.
After nearly six years together, the country superstar, 45, and No Doubt singer, 51, exchanged vows during an intimate ceremony in front of their closest family and friends. The Carson Daly-officiated ceremony took place inside a chapel on Shelton’s ranch, built exclusively for the superstar couple to say their “I Dos.”
Additionally, Shelton’s Friends And Heroes Tour kicks off later this summer on August 18 in Nebraska and will run through October. The country hitmaker’s tour comes in support of his latest album, Body Language, which was released earlier this year. The 12-track project includes his 28th No. 1 single “Happy Anywhere” and his recent single “Minimum Wage.”
The tour includes support from Martina McBride, Tracy Byrd, Trace Adkins and Lindsay Ell.
