Gwen Stefani Makes Grand Ole Opry Debut Remotely Alongside Blake Shelton

Gwen Stefani continued her conversion into full-fledged country queen this past weekend when she made her performing debut on Nashville’s Grand Ole Opry. The former No Doubt frontwoman appeared on the program alongside boyfriend and Opry member Blake Shelton; the two delivered a remote performance of their chart-topping duet “Nobody But You” while quarantining at Shelton’s ranch in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. Shelton also joked with Trace Adkins, who took to the actual Opry stage this past weekend, “As much as I love you, Trace, I’m much happier to be quarantined with Gwen than you.” He added, “I still don’t feel like 600 miles is enough social distancing for you and I.”

Meanwhile, Stefani was clearly thrilled to be on the Opry. “Is this happening? Am I really on the Grand Ole Opry?” she asked. Shelton revealed that Opry brass had even sent Stefani “the parking place sign they give everybody for their first performance and the Grand Ole Opry microphone stand.” He also promised her, “As soon this is all over, we’ll have to get you to the Opry House in Nashville and do this that way.”
