Blake Shelton devoted 2015 to losing one love and finding another. At 39, Blake started the year married to long-time sweetheart Miranda Lambert. But although Shelton and Miranda were regarded as country music’s king and queen, something happened and in the summer, Blake and Lambert issued a formal statement announcing their divorce. The new season of The Voice began with Gwen Stefani in one of those swiveling chairs, and after having recently survived her own divorce to Gavin Rossdale, she and Shelton soon became soulmates in a PDA partnership, as the Inquisitr reported.
Since their romance began on The Voice, some thought it might be more of a “showmance” for ratings. But those rumors died away as Blake continued to woo his new girlfriend from the football field to wine country to his hometown, even visiting her parents in her hometown. And now, Shelton has been spotted with Gwen as they popped up parading their PDA in Nashville, reported ET.
Seen at O’Charley’s restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, Blake and his own special rocking pop idol showed up driven by Shelton. Once they left the black SUV and entered the restaurant to settle in a booth, it was time to canoodle, a source told ET.
Sitting next to each other, Blake was “all over” Stefani, revealed the source.
“They were very touchy feely,” added the source. “You could tell Blake was glad she was right there by his side.”
And rather than rush the couple for autographs, customers politely left them to their semi-private PDA party while they enjoyed beverages together.
The famous crooning lovebirds had a reason to return to Nashville. Amanda Craig, who is the stylist for Shelton, was getting married, and so Blake persuaded his No Doubt frontwoman to join him at the wedding.
Also present was another familiar figure to Shelton. RaeLynn, who competed on Blake’s team on The Voice, was there. Shelton and Gwen also visited Nashville recently for RaeLynn’s engagement party. In addition, the couple visited Anaheim to experience Gwen’s hometown following Christmas in Oklahoma, which Shelton views as his own home state. They enjoyed wine tasting in California and a football game in Arizona, as well, to wrap up the holidays in traveling style.
The couple confirmed that they were dating in November, following her August announcement of her divorce from Rossdale. Shelton had revealed his divorce from Miranda Lambert only a month prior.
As for whether Miranda showed up at the wedding, there was no sight of her, according to the Daily Mail. However, the stylist also has worked with Lambert.
But Blake and Stefani made sure to appear in style, with Shelton in a three-piece suit in his role as groomsman. Cowboy boots completed his country look, while she sported a black mesh outfit.
If you’re visualizing the couple staying in a luxury hotel suite, not exactly. They resided in a different type of luxurious environment, courtesy of Blake. He’s the proud possessor of a trailer that offers a luxury multi million dollar ambiance, and that’s where they stayed.
In addition to their travels, the couple (who some are calling Shefani) have been having flirty fun on Twitter, reported E! News.
The People’s Choice Awards kick-started the social media exchange. Blake received the Favorite Male Country Artist award, while The Voice was recognized as the Favorite Competition TV Show.
“@blakeshelton @peopleschoice @NBCTheVoice… wow!!!!!#everybodylovesblake #sorad #countrymafia gx,” tweeted his proud girlfriend.
Shelton tweeted appreciation.
“Whoa!!! I won a @peopleschoice award for country artist tonight!!! And @NBCTheVoice won also!!!!!! Thank yall!!!” wrote Blake in country style.
And then when his rocker girlfriend revealed she’d been in the studio working on music, Shelton was quick to praise her skills.
“Guaranteed greatness,” promised Shelton proudly.
