In fact, as the “Honey Bee” musician revealed, spending time in the Southwest has given Gwen, a California native, a whole new lease on life.
“I’m not going to say that she’s become this country girl,” Blake exclusively told E! News, “but I just think we’re starting to see a different side of Gwen.”
As for what that different side entails? Well, it includes the “Sweet Escape” singer—who recently collaborated with her husband on a cover of The Judds’ “Love Is Alive”—venturing into another genre.
“I think country music has kind of given her the chance to show what an incredible vocalist she is,” Blake shared, “and an incredible songwriter.”
And if you’re wondering whether the couple would be open to making more music together in the future, he thinks the idea is more than cool.
“Oh my God, Gwen, yes, more music please,” he jokingly pleaded. “I need that. My career needs you to record more music with me, Gwen.”
All jokes aside, Blake hasn’t shied away from gushing about his love for the No Doubt singer. In fact, he recently recalled being blown away the first time they crossed paths when they were both coaches on The Voice.
“The first time that I ever met Gwen was in 2014,” Blake said during his Oct. 19 speech celebrating Gwen’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “She wasn’t like any other famous person that I had ever met before.”
