Gwen Stefani earned some serious country music cred this week, as she was nominated for her very first CMT Music Award. Boyfriend Blake Shelton congratulated her on Instagram, and Gwen expressed her shock.
Gwen and Blake are nominated for Collaborative Video of the Year for the duet “Nobody But You.” The music video was released in January of this year, and it’s not the only country duet the pair has recorded.

Blake Shelton Brought Gwen Into The Country World
Gwen Stefani’s relationship with fellow Voice coach Blake Shelton has brought her into the world of country music. “Nobody But You” even made it to No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, making Blake’s wish come true.
“We’re hoping it goes all the way to the top, for everybody involved, but for me personally to know that Gwen Stefani is a part of a No. 1 country song,” Blake said earlier this year. “What is this world?”
In July, the couple released another duet called “Happy Anywhere,” along with a video shot from quarantine. The song was an immediate hit, and Blake and Gwen performed the track at the ACM Awards earlier this month.
Both Blake and Gwen will return to their coaches’ chairs when The Voice premieres October 19 on NBC. The CMT Awards, meanwhile, will air October 21.
