Blake Shelton Opens Up About Writing Music With Gwen Stefani

(Radio.com) He's a little bit country and she's a little bit rock 'n roll, but that didn't stop Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani from writing a song together. On April 19th, Stefani revealed the tracklist to Shelton's upcoming album If I'm Honest, which boasts the collaboration "Go Ahead and Break My Heart" from the couple.

Shelton opened up to People about co-writing with his girlfriend, admitting that he was nervous at first because it's such an intimate experience. "We were at a point where it's like, 'Do we want to go there?" he said. "What will people think?' And then we finally just got to the point where it's like, 'You know what? I don't give a s-."

He can't stop gushing about the song that resulted. "I love this song! This song's important to us and the fact that we wrote it together is so important to both of us," he shared.

Shelton also discussed how picky he can be about writing music with other artists because of his own insecurities, but he found that writing with Stefani came quite naturally. "I think Gwen has a smaller circle too when it comes to writing, and the fact that we went there that early as we were getting to know each other, it's just remarkable," he said. "As different as we are musically, we're a fan of the same type of songs." Read more here.
