Blake Shelton & Gwen Stefani Planning To Release Joint Christmas Album [Report]
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani are reportedly planning another big musical collaboration and readying a joint album.
According to a new report by Radar Online, Blake and Gwen have more duet plans up their sleeve following the success of their duet “Go Ahead and Break My Heart” and are allegedly planning on releasing a joint Christmas album together.
An insider close to the couple, who first met when they were both coaches on NBC’s The Voice, “have told their friends that they are doing an album together” according to the site.
“It is going to be a Christmas album,” Radar Online‘s insider alleged of Shelton and Stefani’s plans to hit the studio together again. “They said it will be a little bit pop with a lot of country.”

Gwen and Blake are yet to speak out about the Christmas album rumors, though Shelton hasn’t been shy about celebrating the festive season with his significant others in the past.
Shelton dropped his first Christmas album, Cheers, It’s Christmas, back in 2012, which featured a duet with his then wife Miranda Lambert on the classic holiday song “Jingle Bell Rock” as well as collaboration with Lambert and her Pistol Annies bandmates on the song “Blue Christmas.”
Blake has also been pretty open about how much he loved hitting the studio with Stefani for their duet “Go Ahead and Break My Heart,” admitting in a past interview with The Today Show that the two have a lot of “musical chemistry” and “chemistry chemistry.”
“I actually wrote that song, started it just to try to impress her, to be honest with you,” Blake said of their duet. “I sent it to her just half done… and she wrote the next verse and sent it back to me. And so it was like, oh, we’ve got a song together. That’s kind of cool.”
Blake Shelton also spoke out about teaming up with Gwen Stefani for a duet during an appearance on Live! With Kelly, where he admitted that another country collaboration and may even a joint album aren’t completely out of the question following their first duet.
“We really don’t work together at all,” Shelton said about the duet. “That’s what’s crazy about writing that song, outside of just going in and recording our vocals… She’s Gwen Stefani. I’m a country singer, you know, we don’t really work together. It’s crazy that thing happened anyway.”
But should Blake and Gwen drop a joint Christmas album this year, their festive season will be the second in a row that the loved-up couple have spent together.
Entertainment Tonight reported back in December 2015 that Shelton and Stefani has celebrated their first Christmas together as a couple in Blake’s home state of Oklahoma.
The site reported that Blake and Gwen were spotted shopping together at Atwoods Ranch and Home in Madill, Oklahoma, on Christmas Eve, just days after Shelton and Stefani attended an ugly Christmas sweater-themed party in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Christmas Eve sighting came shortly after Gwen took to Twitter to post a holiday message to her millions of followers, posting a GIF of Shelton planting numerous kisses on her cheek.
“Merry Christmas,” Stefani captioned the GIF, which showed herself and Blake sporting matching camo gear and baseball caps.OK! Magazine also reported last year that the holidays are a special time for Stefani and Shelton, as Blake allegedly went all out to make his first Christmas with Gwen special.
“[Shelton] wants to make a big splash for Christmas and give her a special day she’ll never forget — and only diamonds and pearls will do,” a source told the magazine of Blake last year.
“Blake’s never been in to this sort of thing, but for Gwen he’s making a big exception,” the Shelton insider continued. “He’s completely smitten and can’t believe she’s giving him the time of day, let alone her heart.”
