Last Sunday night was the big ACM Awards and Blake Shelton was there to perform. Blake started out the show by joining Luke Bryan on stage and then performing his own song “Came Here to Forget.” Country Rebel shared that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani both had a busy weekend, and that could easily explain why she wasn’t by his side at the big event. She is working hard on promoting her new music right now.
On Saturday night, Gwen was across the country for her Saturday Night Live performance. Of course, she could have made it to Vegas in time for the show, but a girl has to sleep sometimes too. She wanted to be with Blake though, and Gwen flew from New York City to Las Vegas to attend the Warner Music Nashville After Party with Shelton. They were side by side for the event and it was great for Blake to have her support there.
Blake Shelton didn’t have a date for the ACM Awards, but he did for the after party. Lucky for us, Brett Eldredge wasn’t shy about who Blake brought with him though. He shared a photo of himself with Shelton and Stefani alongside RAC Clark, the executive producer of the awards show; John Esposito, the president and CEO of Warner Music Nashville; and Jack Sussman, CBS’ executive vice president of specials, music, and live events.
The couple has been really quiet about the big event, but Blake did respond to Brett. He said, “Ha!!!! Great job last night brother.” It does look like they all had a great time at the big party. During the ACM Awards, Blake Shelton was never seen in the audience, so fans were curious if Blake and his new girlfriend were having problems or if she was there and they just never showed it. It turns out things are just fine between them.
At the ACM Awards, Blake Shelton actually sang a song that he wrote for the new lady in his life. This might have been a bit strange because he performed it in front of his ex-wife Miranda Lambert. USA Today shared that Blake’s song is obviously about his new relationship. It is talking about two people who need to forget things going on with their lives and end up connecting. It is really easy for what is going on in your life to end up in your music. Blake’s entire new album is going to have fans talking about his relationships and what he was talking about in the music.
Miranda Lambert didn’t seem to mind too much though. She was there with her new boyfriend Anderson East and they walked the red carpet together. If Miranda and Blake ran into each other that night, nobody shared about it happening. Miranda even had Anderson sitting with her when she won her big award, but she wasn’t quite ready to give him a big thank you during her speech. These two both seem to be moving on just fine from their divorce. Fans are so glad to see that they have both found love.
Are you surprised to see that Gwen Stefani didn’t make the ACM Awards, but went with Blake Shelton to the after party? Do you think that these two are a great match? Sound off in the comments section below on your thoughts, and don’t miss Blake in new episodes of The Voice on NBC. Gwen was on the start of the season helping Blake out, but she is not a coach this time around.
