He introduced her to the crowd as “Gwen Shelton.” This comes after she admitted that she liked to be called Mrs. Shelton after they got married in July 2022. The two performed an acoustic version of their song. It captivated the crowd so much that you could only hear the wind in the background.
Blake Shelton invites special friends
The No Doubt singer wasn’t the only one who was there. Blake Shelton also invited Kane Brown for their rendition of “Ol’ Red,” which is his biggest early hit. Blake joked that this song might’ve been released before Kane was born. Kane informed him that he was born around that time.
Unfortunately, the winds picked up during the private benefit. That didn’t deter the artists from giving it their all during the show. The wind threatened to hurt the musicians on the stage. After their performance, Blake joked that they’re “hoping to survive” since it could cause “a very expensive injury.”
