Earlier this month, we reported that the singers Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani had finally gotten married in Oklahoma. Now, they have performed publicly for the first time as a married couple.
The newlyweds shocked their fans this week by performing at Ole Red, a bar that Shelton owns in Oklahoma. They kicked off the surprise performance with a rendition of Shelton’s song “Happy Anywhere,” which features Stefani. They then performed their love song “Nobody But You,” with Shelton pointing proudly at his wife as she received a huge round of applause from the crowd.

The couple got married surrounded by family and friends on July 3 in a chapel Shelton had built on his ranch in his home state of Oklahoma.
“It was absolutely a picture-perfect intimate wedding with family,” a source told Entertainment Tonight. “Everyone at the wedding was so thrilled to see Gwen and Blake finally get married. They have been talking about a wedding for so long and wanted nothing more than to officially call themselves a family. It was a fairy-tale experience even for the guests.”
“Everyone who attended the ceremony was talking about Gwen and Blake’s love for one another,” the source continued. “They have been so careful because they’ve had their hearts broken and this wedding made everyone feel like dreams do really come true. They have both been through a lot and deserved to find each other. They were meant to be a couple in every way.”

Stefani and Shelton had been dating for six years before their marriage, as they met while both acting as coaches on “The Voice” back in 2015.
Carson Daly, the host of “The Voice” who also officiated the wedding, said that there were “a bunch of pinch me moments” at the intimate celebration.
“It was perfectly them, the whole weekend and the marriage itself. It was as elegant, and refined, and cool as Gwen is, and it was as country, and down home, and fun as Blake is,” Daly said. “They just work. They’re an unlikely pair. They’re like if you paired delicious fried chicken with a glass of champagne. On paper, on the menu, it doesn’t seem to work, but it works.”
“They’re comfort food with class and everybody roots for that,” he continued. “… It was just their family. It was small and it was perfect.”
