COVID has changed a lot of things for artists, musicians and songwriters in Nashville, but for Blake Shelton, the process of finding new music to record has always remained the same. The songs get to him the same way they have since he moved from Nashville a decade ago. He tells us: “Finding music is no different during this pandemic, and the shutdown and quarantine phase. It’s no different than it’s been the last ten years, because I don’t live in Nashville, I live in Oklahoma, and then when I’m not there, I’m traveling, or I’m in LA filming The Voice, so most of the music is either emailed to me, or sent to me on a disc, that I just listen to on my own time. So, that part of it hasn’t been much different.”
COVID has created some problems for Blake and his upcoming wedding to Gwen Stefani. In a recent interview with Extra, he said they're going to wait to choose a wedding date until all their guests can be safe and comfortable together. Blake explained, “We want our families to be there, her mom and dad, my mom and step-dad, and we don’t have a clue when we’re going to be able to mingle again. So that is all we’re waiting on. I would marry her when we’re done with this interview if I could.”
Blake and Gwen got engaged last year after five years of dating.
